Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I am sorry for your loss.What province are you in please?Was your separation agreement and if so do to deal with your ex-spouse's estate?Were you financially dependent on your ex husband at the time of his death?
What happened to you is not fair but from a legal point of view you have no claim to make against the estate.
That claim had to be made by suing within two years of the debt arising and I know you could not because of the bankruptcy.
As well, the bankruptcy wiped out the debt.
He may have acted fraudulently and it sounds like he did but you had to address that back then and cannot legally address this now.
I wish I had a better answer for you.
