I thought I had sent a question through. A lot of it got cut-off on the limit of space I guess.Can I get an annulment from a "marriage" where we did not live together even one day? He cleaned me out of everything I owned, including 2 houses, 2 trucks, gave my furniture away. He was out on parole (I did not know, he came as a tenant) - he brutally killed a man while he robbed him in 1972 and made me too scared to kick him out.I never expect to see him again, plus he's been in jail the last 3 years. It took me a long time to save up the $35. for a divorce kit but I've never had the $210. filing fee to put the divorce through. My landlady mentioned an annulment. Do I qualify? I had to go back on disability after he cleaned me out of everything, I am brain-injured. Technically been married to him for most of 7 years.
State/Country relating to question: Canada
I live in Alberta. I've just been trying to function in my new life of having everything stolen from me, back on disability and selling all the fancy tools he bought. I've been in this little apartment in the bad part of town for most of 4 years. I was reeling from the effect of cancer drugs when he came to me as a tenant and I'm still trying to get my life back together as best I can.
I bought a divorce kit for $35. but have never been able to pay the filing fee.
Landlady said 'annulment'. s
Hi, I’m a moderator for this topic and I wonder whether you’re still waiting for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will do my best to find a professional to assist you right away. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you. Thank you!
Yes please. I need to know if Alberta laws allow it to be an annulment and, if possible, what kind of expenses are involved so I knew what to figure out. Thank you very much.
Sometimes, finding the right Expert can take a little longer than expected and we thank you greatly for your understanding. We’ll be in touch again shortly.
I am sorry to hear this.It is not likely that you can get an annulment and in any event that would involve a long court process and be very expensive.Getting a straight divorce on an uncontested basis is the least expensive and fastest thing to do.You should call your local courthouse and ask if there is a way to have the fees waived if they cause you undue hardship.That is possible in some provinces.Let me know if you need further clarification.Thanks and good luck!
Thank you very much. Now I know what direction to go. But I was told once I needed to go through a "student lawyer" association to GET THEM to see if I can get fees waived.
May I please have your information on that. I live in Edmonton, if it makes any difference. Thank you so much!
You do not need to speak to any lawyer's association.Just call your local courthouse and ask what you can do if you cannot afford the fees to apply for a simple divorce. Be sure to tell them it's a simple divorce.
