Living Separate – Mother of 3
Posted in Divorce, Location, Ontario, Scarborough by Questions on June 11, 2014
I have been married for 24 years…I have not been with my husband for over a year now..and we have been sleeping in separate rooms. I have been sleeping in the living room and he has taken over the master bedroom. we have 3 grown up children…2 of which are still going to College/University. my son is graduating this year. I have been the sole provider for the last 10 years and paid 80% of the household expenses. I have worked for the last 27 years and he has not worked for the last 10 years. He was very controlling the first 20 years we were married. I would like to know if this is a valid reason to file for divorce and would I be able to ask him for support for the children as they are all still living with me and I am paying for their school. Also, I would like to know if he is entitled to half of the house and my rrsp as he has not fully contributed to either. Also, I have used all of my inheritance towards the house, which I know I shouldnt have, but need to pay the mortgage and bills.
