What exactly are you fighting over? Property? Don't bother with the police. This is a civil matter and they won't even get involved. I am not sure how sponsors work with a married couple but perhaps you can revoke it now that you are separated. She has a job and property in another country and I am assuming she came here because you married her. Now that the marriage is over can she not simply return? I would suggest you get a lawyer and write down everything and keep a file of documents that would prove she owns property and has income etc. This would be easy I guess since every country pays taxes etc. and documents property owned. You will write out what your debts and assets were at the time of marriage. A marriage that lasted under 4 years with no kids will be quick to determine what you both are entitled to. Family Law will determine the outcome, not a spouse who feels cheated and needs to be compensated. You won't like the fact that you owe her some of your money from the home and other assets that were acquired or made during the short years together but you need to wrap your head around the fact that this is the way it will be. Submit it to your lawyer and he/she will suggest an offer to her. You won't come out of this unscathed financially. Consider it a life lesson and move on. I am not clear about your relationship and how it came to be and had you been dating years and got married or was this somehow scammed by her to get to Canada, was it an arranged marriage? You could suggest that angle to your lawyer and see how that plays out.

Thank for your comments. It is not me who wants to fight. I have tried many times trying to settle this issue outside court, but she rejects offers and suggestions from me and friends, and insists fighting in court. She claims that she will put me in jail. I have no choice but to fight back.

Your biggest problem is that because you sponsored your partner you are financially obligated to support them for 8 years. So, you could be on the hook for the minimum requirements should your partner go on social assistance of any sort.

You are making you are making your matter complex because of your emotional baggage. Stop it. Get help from a medical professional.

If she went on social assistance of any sort, I would report to authorities for her cheating, because she still holds a full time job overseas and has income today. My obligation to support her is for 3 years, not 8 years.

Go ahead and report her. You may be shooting yourself in the foot.

If you’ve been married and in Canada all this time and she’s been earning income from her own country, that income would need to be reported. It would be reported as world income to Canada Revenue Agency. You may end up owing them money.

Agreed. This kind of conduct is often a good way to "shoot yourself in the foot" indeed.

Furthermore, adding the complexity of a complaint on top of it all won't make things easier to end... It will only make it take longer.

So will lamenting about cheating and other stuff...

I agree what you said and fully understand the consequence. Fortunately for me, we have financially separated more than one year ago and live as a couple in the eye of CRA for only very short time, six months only. Even if I had to pay back, it wouldn't be big.
