I am living in Edmonton, AB and going through a divorce with my wife. We both came into the marriage with our own homes and then purchased a third home together. While married she sold the home she brought into the marriage in which we both lived for 4 years and I still have the home that I brought into the marriage which she has never lived nor stayed in. We have been separated for approx. 5 years and for the last three of those years she has not allowed me to stay in the home we jointly bought. She is claiming that she has right to not only the jointly purchased home but also to the home I brought into the marriage. Is this correct? She has kept me out of the house for three years and claims that I am still responsible for expenses of the joint home I am not allowed to live in. I need advice on what my rights are and how to proceed. Please help. Thank you.
