My wife left 2years...

My wife left 2years ago. I have three kids living with me. 19 17 16. She has not paid any child support. She has not helped at all with our mortgage. My house is worth 225 000. I owe 200 000. We have two vehichles paid off equal in value. We have 40k in rrsps in her name, bought after we were married. We make equal income of 55k each. We have no other assets. how much is this going to cost me?

Lawyer's Assistant: It can cost anywhere from $10 to $100, depending on the type of issue and how much of the Family Lawyer's time your question is expected to take (how complex and lengthy an answer you require).

Are you asking about what to do to start a divorce application?
