I recommend you contact an experienced family law lawyer and discuss how you can pay the lawyer and your legal rights.  You can consult with more than one lawyer and some lawyers have a free consultation policy.  The Canadian Bar Association, BC Branch, has a lawyer referral service and clients are able to see a lawyer for 30 minutes for $25.  Do not delay because an experienced family law lawyer will help you figure out how to obtain the financial resources you need to support yourself.

You cannot afford not to get a lawyer.  depending on eligibility requirements if you have no income you can still get legal aid.  a business is not like land where you can register a certificate of pending litigation on it.  if he is the owner on paper, there is little you can do to stop him.  although you could file a notice of claim and get a section 67 restraining order preventing the sale but he could defy that too.
