Common Law Seeks Home
A common law spouse is extremely limited in any property dispute. There is usually no problem
where the property is held jointly. Where the property is not jointly held, the common law spouse
is limited to a claim in trust, a process that has practical barriers to success, not the least of which
is the amount of legal fees that could be incurred.
Claims in this category should be reviewed with an experienced matrimonial lawyer.
Please note: If you are involved in a matrimonial dispute, we
strongly recommend that you retain a lawyer to represent
you at the first possible opportunity;
This site and this note are designed only to acquaint you with a
few (and only a few) of the issues that may affect you.
It is not intended as legal advice on any specific case.
You are well advised to retain the services of an
experienced lawyer as soon as possible.
