Hi! I live in...

Hi! I live in alberta, canada. I am currently in a relationship with a man who is stiol married but separated. Am I allowed to enter into an adult interdependent relationship agreement already? Or do I have to wait for a divorce on his part first?

He lives separately. No court papers have been filed yet. Still waiting to complete the 1 year period for divorce claim.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer about this yet?

Not yet

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

That is all for now

Yes you can enter into an adult interdependent relationship. He does not have to be divorced.

Does that fully answer your question?

Thank you for getting back to me.Just a follow-up question. Does he need a separation agreement in place first or can we just go ahead with the adult interdependent relationship agreement?

He doesn't need a separation agreement at all. He never needs one in fact.

Thanknyou. How do I get back to you for assistance in finalizing the draft of the adult interdependent relationship agreement?

I cannot help with that. I can only provide legal information. You will have to retain your own lawyer to do the agreement. And your partner will need independent legal advice as well.
