What are the consequences to an attorney in the Canadian legal system, who files spurious liens on behalf of her client, who doesn't have an ownership of the property, the lien is not agreed to by the owner of the property and it is not imposed by a judgment of a Court Order. I am the owner of the property, what are my options? liens were placed by an attorney on behalf of my x-husband. I divorced him fifteen years ago in California. This attorney filed for divorce again in BC Supreme Court and placed liens with absolutely no legal basis on the properties transferred to me as part of the settlement. My 'x' owes me a lot of money in unpaid child and spousal support and I owe him nothing. It bothers me to think that a member of the Canadian Bar Association can file a case with no legal basis, in a Court that has no jurisdiction over the case in the first place. Can I sue her in a Canadian Court or is it better to complain to the BC Law Society. Thank you.
First of all, determine if these are truly spurious liens; some liens, as noted in comments, don't have to be agreed to by the subject of the lien and don't have to be approved by a court. Try Legal aid BC.
If they are, in fact. problematic liens, Canadian law provides a disciplinary framework giving people recourse against lawyers, so you can file a complaint against the him/her. See FAQ: Complaints and Discipline | The Law Society of British Columbia.
