Legal separation and taxes
Posted in Barrie, Location, Ontario, Separation by Questions on March 11, 2014
My husband and I are going to sell our house and separate. We have two kids, both of which will be living with me. I want a legal separation, but he refuses to pay for the cost. I was told that if we do not legally separate, then all of the debt and bad credit he has after our “separation” will also be mine, and that we cannot file taxes on our own without this legal document. Is this true? So far it is an amicable separation, but given his financially record, I really do not want to be on the hook for any of his bad mistakes.
