I am sorry to hear this.

How long have you lived in Alberta for?

Six yrs.

In Alberta common law spouses do not have property rights the way legally married spouses do. That means you each keep what you bought and you share jointly held assets

So you take your furniture with you. You do not share in your RRSPs or any other assets.

But, common law spouses do have spousal support rights and that means that if he was supporting you during the 6 years, at least to some extent he will have to provide you with spousal support.

Does that help as a starting point?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.

He insisted on supporting
me ,then almost after four yrs I got a job for it was like pulling teeth to even get perscription filled.That was job and have been paying bills,all my food ,gas, three yrs ago,repairs,docpills,grandbaby,everything related to my self minus rent . Ive had to go to bank and sign my name with his so he can take out rsp early to drink .Am not interested in his vegas time share . I have no furniture ,deposit . And cant do all on my own. Am miserible staying in my own room and the stituation is depressing me. I dont know if i can continue this in order have my life back. I was a fool for believing he loved me when he only wanted a maid ,cook and a person to say " luv you hun" .

If you have low income you can get a legal aid certificate and retain a family lawyer for free to act for you.

I suggest you contact legal aid tomorrow:
