If you wish to terminate your legal marriage and obtain a divorce in Canada, the application may be brought to The Superior Court of Justice or the Unified Family Court. After a divorce is granted, your legal status will change from married to single. We can help you get prepared and ensure your rights are protected during the process.
Filing for divorce is not mandatory if you wish to split from your spouse and it is only legally required if one party wishes to remarry. There are three grounds that constitute the “breakdown of a marriage” that would set the stage for a divorce application. They include:
- A one-year separation
Some of the issues that may be contested include:
- Child custody and access
- Child support
- Division of property
- Spousal support
A divorce can be an emotionally and financially draining process that changes your life forever, so it’s imperative that you have adequate legal representation every step of the way.
