  • Question on Common Law Divorce

    I need some help.

    This Q&A:

    ""If I'm in a common law relationship, do I need to obtain a divorce?"

    No. Your relationship is over when one of you says it's over.


    ...appears on the following web page:

    http://www.common-law-separation-can...ion-Canada.htm

    I would like to know if a formal statement like a letter is needed. Also, I would like to know where it states in law that a common law relationship is over "when one of you says it's over." I am no longer living with my common law partner with whom I lived for more than 10 years.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    steve,

    welcome to the forum

    The relationship was over when you left the common residence. This would be considered the date of separation.
