My husband & I separated 8 years ago. We have 3 kids

Customer Question

My husband & I separated 8 years ago. We have 3 kids together, all of whom live with me full time. He moved out of the family home @ that time. Does he have a legal right to half the home's worth still? We agreed @ the time if separation that he got the rrsp's & I got the house. Can he challenge that?

Did he have independent legal advice when he signed the agreement?

Expert:  Legal Ease replied 1 year ago.

Then there is no basis for him making any claim for any interest in the house.

The asset division was handled and you entered into a signed separation agreement with independent legal advice.
