I am from Vietnam and got married to my husband in Canada last year. I am now pregnant but he wants to divorce me. What are my rights and my babies rights in Canada? Do we have to go back to Vietnam?

 My friend is a Canadian citizen and his girlfriend’s visa tourist will expire in 12 days or if it it becomes expired. They know that they can marry before expiration date with following the procedures, but can he marry her still after her visa expires and what steps do he need to do and what problems could occur.
