What province is this please?
Possession of the home has nothing to do with ownership in a case like this.
Your son will not have his right to own the home affected because he has moved out and she has remained living in the home.
Because both of their names are ***** ***** the court will presume that each owns one half of the house. That presumption can be rebutted if one of the owners proved to the court that they contributed more to the value of the home then the other person.
In a case like this where the other owner is going to be living in the home the best approach may be to have each of them contribute to the mortgage equally and then have her pay rent for the portion of the home that she will be occupying.
However, really the very best approach would be for them to sign an agreement prepared by a lawyer.Doesn't help as a starting place?
