Commonlaw Debt Responsibility

In Alberta, am I considered commonlaw with my boyfriend after 3 months? And, if so, am I responsible for his debt after this time? (credit card, car payment, etc.)

Marital status and debt are separate issues. It doesn’t matter whether you are common law, married, or simply dating, the only way you can be held responsible for his debt is if you have signed on it. If you haven’t signed on any of his accounts you are not responsible for them.
