November 2, 2020

During Monday November 2, 2020 episode, Me Spunt and Marie discussed divorce during COVID, debunked the myth of common law couples and explained in detail that they do not have any of the same rights as married couples. You have to be your own advocate and be sure that your rights are protected. For example if you buy a house with your partner and you are not married make sure your name is on the deed of sale! Me Spunt also discussed language discrimination in a superior court judgement that contravenes the Constitution of Canada from 1867.
