Hi McBroke,

Boy I would really like to say that yes, you may list your share of the car loan as a liability, but I'm hesitant. You don't own the car, so it doesn't make sense for you to have a...

myrivers,

Any period before you started cohabiting doesn't count. So, in your case, you would have been cohabiting for only 7 years, and those years are the only years that will be taken into...

Hi myrivers,

Great question! I'm sure quite a few people wonder whether common law rights start at the beginning of cohabitation or at the 3-year point of living together.

Let's say you would...
