I see. Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX providing me with additional insights as to the nature of your situation and what you wish to achieve.
You could potentially sue your ex for fraud if you have evidence he never intended to go through with the marriage
but was defrauding you out of your money/assets. That is normally a difficult cause of action to prove, but could provide a basis to seek emotional distress damages.
You could certainly pursue a lawsuit for conversion, seeking the value of your belongings he is wrongfully withholding from you. I would certainly report the incidents to the police as they could aid in retrieving your belongings if you do not wish to stay in the home you shared with your ex.
If you do wish to live there until you can return to Canada, the police should be able to assist you with that as well. Because it was your home, your ex could not legally kick you out without a court order typically, so the police could aid you in returning, but you may wish to pursue a restraining order
against your ex if you do that, so he cannot return to the home while you are there.
I would retain a local family law
attorney to represent you in this matter as these issues are most often addressed by such an attorney. The state and local bar associations can provide you with attorney referrals. The state bar's referral service is at calbar.org.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need so I will be compensated for my time from the deposit you posted with this website. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
