Anonymous Asked:

Now I know my spouse has set me up for a divorce for a long time. About 6 months before I was forced to move out. She set me up to go to the lawyer office to sign a document. She and the lawyer told me that is a new property that their family acquired and want me to declare I have no right with it. As I trusted her that time, I signed and I have never got a copy. 6 months after signing, I was forced to leave home and I knew I could not save my marriage. Then she asked me to sign divorce agreement and gave up all my right. Given what happened, is it possible that she could win for the situation?

I would strongly advise you to discuss your situation with a lawyer as I am unclear as to what documents have been signed and what your current situation is. In situations where the validity of a domestic contract is challenged, pursuant to s. 56 of the Family Law Act (FLA), courts have the ability to set aside a domestic contract where there has been a lack of financial disclosure provided by one of the parties, or where a party did not understand the nature or consequences of the domestic contract they were signing. There can be various considerations and factors at play in this type of situation so I strongly urge you to speak with a lawyer to determine whether s. 56 of the FLA or something else would apply to your specific circumstances.
