in Ontario..married for 12 years.no seperation agreement.l am asking about any possible benefit
Expert:  Legal Ease replied 1 year ago.

Unfortunate, you are too late to make any claim to any asset that is in your spouse's name. You had to bring an application to make claim to any of his assets, including a pension, within six years of the separation or two years if you had gotten divorced.

You are entitled to make a claim for a credit spill eith CPP. You do not need an agreement for this in Ontario.

I suggest you contact CPP now as the credit splitting process takes many months.
