FAQs

1. What is an uncontested or amicable divorce?

 

In an uncontested divorce the parties have already determined the legal consequences and breakdown of their rupture. The benefits of filing a Joint Application are the following:

 

  • There is no need for the parties to present themselves in Court;

  • Costs are significantly less than a contested divorce and flat fee packages are applicable;

  • The parties choose their outcomes, not left in the hands of a judge;

  • Judgments are often obtained much quicker should everything be filed and prepared properly.

 

2. I want to get divorced, but my spouse says they won’t sign the papers. Do I need my spouse’s permission to get divorced?

 

A spouse does not need the other party’s permission to obtain a divorce. Given that spouses are considered equal in Canada, either spouse may invoke any of the following reasons to obtain a divorce judgment:

 

  • Living apart for at least one year

  • Adultery

  • Physical or mental cruelty

 

3. How long will my divorce take?

 

This is one of the most common and often most difficult question to answer. Since every divorce is different it is very difficult to estimate a time frame. A divorce can range from weeks, to months to years.
