arabian will become famous soon enough

How many years have you been married? How many years living together? (Alberta has specific matrimonial property laws.)

Are you supported by your wife?

Don't take any advice from relatives. Police are keepers of the peace, not lawyers. You might want to consider a consultation with a lawyer. If you have no income you could see if Legal Aid could assist you.

Don't worry about being at your home to receive divorce papers etc. There is a legal process that has to be followed which your wife's lawyer would be only too aware of.

Weather or not your name is on the title of the property isn't relevant if the two of you are married. You have "dower" rights (unless you signed them off with independent legal advice). Don't jump ahead of yourself. A competent lawyer will explain things to you.
