Here is your daily Lawfact from Wise Law for Wednesday October 5, 2016. Today we are talking about Family Law.
Common law spouses may still advance family property claims, especially where property has been acquired in a “joint family venture,” or they have contributed to the acquisition, maintenance or improvement of property owned by a common law spouse.
The property rights of common law spouses upon separation are not governed by any Ontario statute.
