I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

Expert:  Debra replied 8 days ago.

If you live in Alberta and started your application first then it goes ahead in Alberta.

The BC court made a mistake allowing him to start the application there if he even did. They do a country wide search before allowing anyone to issue a divorce application.

Does that fully answer your question?
