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 to hear this.
How long have you lived there for?What is your specific question?
Are you asking about whether you have right to stay in his house?
You are not common law for family law purposes until you've lived together for 3 years or have a child together.
And common law spouses don't have property rights in any event. Nor do they have a matrimonial home.So you don't have a legal right to remain in the home as he owns it and he is telling you to leave.
I know what is not what you wanted to hear but it is the law. I am a senior family lawyer in Ontario.
