Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** will be working on your question today and I am looking forward to our conversation.
Please note that I am working from my computer and not actually texting. If you don’t answer back for a while I may not be online when you do but I will never desert you and will check back often. As well, as I am working from home it is possible that I will be interrupted but I will always return back as soon as I can.
Finally, although the site offers a call option I personally do not take calls but just work online. Some find this confusing as it looks like the offer is coming from me but that is just how the site presents the offer and it really isn’t coming from me. Some of the other experts do take calls and so you are very welcome to request a call on this post and an expert may take it. They will have the benefit of reading our exchange which should work out very well for everyone involved!
I know your question is important to you and I will be giving it the time and attention it deserves.
I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.
If you did not obtain a marriage licence and have a wedding officiant perform a legal marriage in the UK then you are in a common law relationship and not in a legally married relationship as far as Canada is concerned.
Does that clarify the law and fully answer your question?
This is not a legal marriage in Canada. You are common law spouses in Canada.
Yes I am absolutely sure.
You are very welcome.
Thank you for trusting us to help you here at JustAnswer. If you need more clarification or have a follow-up question just reply and we can continue our dialogue. If you would like to ask me new questions please start a new post and if you do if you say “This is only for Debra” I will be sure to give your post top priority.
WelI I just checked your account and all the other lawyers an answered you are not in Canada.
If this is not a legal marriage in the UK it's not a legal marriage in Canada. So if you don't have to end it by getting a divorce in the UK then it's not a legal marriage in the UK or Canada or in most of the other countries or at least the ones that are a signatories to the Hague conventio
Then it's not a legal marriage, anywhere.
There you go!
Anytime and congratulations!
