If he participates in the debts of your business, he also participates in the assets.

If you participate in his investment assets, he participates in yours.

My business does not have any assets other than my pay cheque. Which
has gone to pay our bills etc. Does that count?

No I mean there are no profits to be had. If we sell the business all assets will go to paying off our debt and I will still owe money. I have a business credit card in my name which will also need to be paid off.

Unless his name is on the business as well in a partnership or corporation, that is your debt.

Unmarried people are governed under provincial laws, and therefore do not follow the Family law act, which is federal.

Does that mean that he is responsible? I am also still not clear about various investments, RSP,Mutual Funds, GIC's. If there are in his name then I have no claim to them is that correct. Is this also true for CPP?
