Customer Question
I was in common...

I was in common law relationship for 6 years, but in 2015, there's no communication as couple between us anymore and he wants me to open an account to his bank for his back drafts. And when I refused he attempted to hit my face with his phone. Since then I moved out of our conjugal townhouse and in legal aid for 2 yrs now to ask for spousal support and right to have a share for the house. My free legal aid will expire January 2018 but I haven't got any of the demands I'm asking for. What should I do now? I'm living in pay check to pay check situation . Please help me I don't know what to do

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Chilliwack, bc Canada

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Yes the legal aid filed already in Chilliwack provincial court

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

There had been a mediation between us sometime last July and I didn't signed or agreed to anythin

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I'm sorry I don't have enough money, I'm in financial difficulty since I separated from my ex that's why I can't afford to hire a lawyer
