Not living with your partner? You could still be spouses with rights and obligations under family law
If you are spouses, then family property divisions, family debt division and spousal support laws apply to you.
As discussed in my previous post which can be found here, unmarried couples must live in a “marriage-like” relationship for a period of at least two continuous years to be considered “spouses” under the Family Law Act which applies to all family law matters in Vancouver and other parts of BC.
