What Is a Common Law Marriage?
Two people can be deemed married if they have been living together for two years. One of the most important processes in the dissolution of a common law relationship is the property division process, which can become highly detailed and complicated. While the process can be complex, you can be assured that our lawyers will take a straightforward and effective approach to resolving your legal issue.
The Dissolution of a Common Law Marriage in British Columbia
While individuals have rights in the dissolution of a common law marriage, the process of dividing assets and determining custody, access and child support are much different. The courts will examine how much one person contributed to the marriage, which bills were paid by which individual and how long the relationship lasted.
