    If you die without having a will which says exactly what you want to have happen to your property, your property will go to your blood relatives ?V for instance, your children, your parents or your brothers and sisters. To claim part of your property, your common law spouse will have to go to court to prove that he or she helped to pay for it. This takes time and is expensive. For these reasons, people living in a common law relationship should each have a will that says to whom they want their property to go if one of them dies.
