I could use some help on divorce.  I am trying to educate myself about a Saskatchewan divorce.  I could really use some help.  If anyone knows any information that would be great.
 
Thanks,

Alicia - are you initiating this action, or is it in response to an action your husband has already begun? You really need to speak with a lawyer in your area. I realize finances are probably an issue, so you may try to do a Google search for legal aid in your province, or even contact the Bar Association for further advice.

I am not initiating this action, but my husband has been talking about that he wants a divorce, so I want to be as knowledgable in this area as I can be.  I know I need to talk to a lawyer, but until he says that is for sure what he wants I want to make sure I know my rights etc.

Good for you for getting prepared. Having been in a similar position many years ago (in the US) I can truthfully say that your best bet is to consult an attorney for advice. I don't know how Canadian law works, but many attorneys here in the States offer free consults in such situations. Usually it only takes 15 or 20 minutes of their time, and they don't bother billing for it in the hope that they'll eventually get the case when the time comes.

I have used FindLaw.com to research various legal issues, but it can be very cumbersome to comb through and find what you need. I'm not sure that the site even covers Canadian law. You might try to Google a similar site for that and see what you can find.

I've read your previous posts about your marriage, and I applaud you for taking the initiative to find out where you stand legally. Having been through this sort of thing myself, and with depression on top of it, I understand completely how difficult it is. Having taken the step of even asking about your rights, you prove yourself to be stronger than you probably think you are. Be proud of yourself! :-)

There is one more thing I want to tell you. He is probably going to threaten you with everything that he can think of.
Mine did and I gave for awhile out of fear. My lawyer was very upset with me..I just wanted out.
Follow your lawyer's advice to the hilt. Remember you will end up with more rights than him.

Thank you so much for the websites.  I will have to take some more time to go through them.  You are such a big help.
