Default Help filling out form 8 and 13.1

I will be filing an application to request CS & SS, as well property division on a 13 year common law relationship that has come to an end. I need to use the right wording, any advice?



Thank you.

Some colleges offer night courses for writing legal briefs/correspondence for self-representing. Check it out in your area. You will need to be able to do more than fill out forms to be successful. You will have to understand the legal process.

If you start doing some personal research you will get an idea of wording.

Some people on this forum have been successful in representing themselves by committing a massive amount of time into learning the process.

Learn to walk before you run.

I just click on to that site - good resource. I particularly like the "click on" part where you can find out how to hide that you've been on the site.

My spouse has renovated the bathroom and is planning to do install new doors and windows. We are in the middle of a separation, and the house is in dispute but no court order is in place, nor a separation agreement has been even dealt with. The house is on her name, but I have contributed in the mortgage and am entitled to half of the property but she is ignoring my rights. Most of lawyers I saw for a consultation have agreed that I am entitled to half of the property and asset... she is taking advantage of the fact that I am severely ill, and I need to know what I could do to protect myself before she even tries something else, such as selling the house.

Any Advice.

She is ignoring you rights, how? By having new windows and doors put on?

We have not finalized nor even started the separation agreement on all issues arisen upon our relationship breakdown. Please let me know if you know about these kind of matters, and I just want to know if she is allowed to do all this without my consent as we still live here, and my lawyer has told me I have exactly the same rights as she does.

Yes, she is allowed to do it without your consent, just the same as when you were married. She owns the house, too, and if you wanted to you could do the same - just as you could have before separation.

I see, and this is from the legal perspective that you are telling me this I assume. How about selling the house? can she without telling me if she is planning it?

Thank you.
