No Legal Requirement to Inform your Spouse

November 1st, 2010 by Questions

I am seriously thinking of applying for a CP, but I don’t want my husband to know, is that at all possible? he has very good financial standing while I`m seriously in trouble, I am joint account holder with some of his accounts only for easy access for our children`s needs and emergency. and I cannot AT ALL use it for my own troubles. please advise if i can apply for CP without my spouse knowing or other family. thanks.

Well, there is no legal requirement that your spouse be told, BUT a consumer proposal usually runs for 4 or 5 years. There is a pretty good chance they will find out “by accident” some time during the proposal.

You have to ask yourself if forgiveness is better than permission…
