My ex and I have been living separately for 5 years. We were married for 15. We have had no agreement done during this time. I now would like a divorce. I am a nurse have paid into a pension for part of my career. He is a hydro one linesman who is eligible to retire in 2 to 5 years. Are our pensions an asset and if so, do we divide these assets based on 15 or 20 years, as we are still, legally married?
I just recently moved in with my boyfriend and he has 3 kids who stay with us every other weekend and once during the week. We both pay our own ways in the house and he pays for everything for his kids, meaning I don’t help him with his kids expenses when they are with us. He’s been paying his ex child support since they separated. His ex is now taking him to court and asking for more child support and now spousal support. We have only been living together for one month now so I know we are not considered common law, but I just wanted to know if our living arrangement will affect his support payments in any way. Will he be required to pay more because he is living with me, even though we keep our expenses separate and I am not helping him support his children financially? Will my personal income come into play or have anything to do with their arrangement? My living with him has not changed or affected his expenses in any way, so I’m wondering if his ex can get me involved in their battle and ask for my personal income information? Please let me know, thanks!
My ex has recently been let go from his place of full time employment. (so he says) He claims he can’t pay his support anymore. First of all he pays less than what he is required to by law. The payments are mostly late. There have been other times over the years where he just stops paying for a few months at a time. My other problem is that he usually would take the winter off from his full time job to ski instruct/coach full time. He also runs a bed and breakfast out of his home with his wife. So how is it he doesn’t have income to pay support? What are my rights? How can I prove he has income? I have his SI number can a lawyer prove he is working?
My husband has committed adultery, along with abusing myself. We’ve been together 12 years total, married the last 2 years. He came into this relationship with nothing. I owned a home and have continued to do so. How much will he be entitled to? Does family court even acknowledge adultery and abuse in a divorce?
I was married for 21 years, I am currently 51 years old. I have 3 kids, the youngest is 17 living with me. The other 2 are on their own. We have been going to court for over 2 years. Only had one case conference, which is was asking for custody of our then 16 year old daughter, which he only sees a handful of times all year. The chldrens lawyer got involved and delayed everything for another year. Meantime, he has been reducing his income significantly, which is why he wanted the childrens lawyer to get involved. My daughter does NOT want to live with him under any circumstances. He refuses to have to pay spousal support. He made 3 times as much as me 5 years ago, and now makes less than twice as much. He was paying me spousal support in the beginning, but not as much as he should have been. He would not produce his NOA’s, because he hadn’t done his taxes for 3 years. I finally got a lawyer and forced him to do his taxes. He made a lot more than he had claimed to be making and now owes me back support. He stopped paying spousal (which was half of what he should have been paying according to SSAG) because my boyfriend lived with me for less than a year. I am not with that boyfriend anymore and we are still fighting in court over spousal support. I did not work for 15 years of the 21 year marriage to raise my children. We had nothing to split between us. I left him with the house, that had no equity in it, and bought my own house. I saved my money and with the help of my parents managed a downpayment. He still doesn’t see my daughter but maybe once a month. Both my other kids don’t really see him much either. One of them will not acknowledge him unless their are at a family function, and the other sees him once in a while. Is is worth it to fight for spousal support? He is in arrears for 5 years for some child support and now for spousal as well. He refuses to negotiate at all.
My name is Shelly, I am currently going through a custody case where I’m being denied access. I need help have a strong case built myself but obviously in need of legal assistance. I am eligible for legal aid does your firm by any chance take legal aid at all. I live in Newmarket my daughter resides in simcoe so the case is in Barrie courts. Thank you
