Canada Family Law
Have a Canadian Family Law Question? Ask a family lawyer.
What province are you in?
I suggest that you meet face to face with a family law lawyer in Alberta. He will be able to properly advise you on your rights upon the separation.
I'm sorry that you feel bullied. You should not be pressured into making any sort of decision that can have long lasting effects
you can contact the Law Society of Alberta at this link http://www.lawsociety.ab.ca/public/lawyer_referral.aspx
You can receive a free 30 minutes consultation with a lawyer
on separation, if you were determined to be in a common law relationship, you are entitled to spousal support but not property rights. However, it is not that straight forward and depending on the facts of your situation a lawyer might be able to assist you in finding a constructive or resulting trust.
Are you on title to the house that you both lived in or is just his name on title? Did you pay anything towards the house?
All of that information can help a lawyer determine that you are entitled to a constructive or resulting trust. This is a complicated matter and you need to meet with a lawyer face to face to discuss your situation. This way you can be advised as to your rights and properly receive what is owed to you.
Do not sign anything without receiving independent legal advice.
As his name is ***** ***** technically it is his house and does not have to let you in. However, that is not a good move for him and he should let you in. It would be best to obtain his permission and do so in an email so you have the written correspondence.
As he is technically the owner on title he does not have to let you in. I would recommend sending an email asking for permission before you go to get your things. You have a good argument that you should be entitled to go get your things but this is something that lawyers could argue over.
It is in your best interest to meet with a lawyer face to face and discuss your situation.
you should communicate with him via email so you have documentation for everything. Send an email asking if you can go inside to retrieve your personal items.
If you call a lawyer today form the law society you should be able to schedule a consultation for early next week.
No it doesn't matter if he was seeing somebody and it doesn't matter what his occupation is.
Again, it is in your best interest to meet with a lawyer. This is a complicated matter and you need legal representation to ensure that you receive what you are entitled to.
