You may certainly file a consumer proposal without yuor husband’s involvement, but I have some bad news for you. If CRA (the tax people) have already rgistered a lien on your home then a consumer proposal won’t clear the debt. By registering a lien the tax debt has become like a mortgage – it is secured against the value of your home. If your home has sufficient equity to cover the debt then you’ll be required to repay 100% of your taxes to have the lien lifted.
Use the links to find a trustee in your area – you need someone to look at the specifics of your situation. I suspect all I’ve done is scare you and that was not my intent.
