About

Common-Law-Separation-Canada.com is a guide to all the major legal issues involved in ending, either through marriage or death, a common law (unmarried) relationship in Canada, including child custody, child support, spousal support, property division, divorce procedure, and more.

It is written by Jeffrey Behrendt, a retired family law barrister and solicitor. Its philosophy is based on the fact that knowledge is power and that people going through a stressful separation should not be forced to pay huge legal fees to learn the basics of the law that applies to their situation. Its aim is to explain the law regarding common law separations in Canada clearly, in terms that non-legal people can understand.
