Divorce Process

The Divorce Process in Ontario

Here is the general Process of Filing a Divorce in Ontario

1. Contact Us

Contact us to set-up your free consultation at our firm. Our lawyer will assess your case and answer your questions. This is the first step.

2. Information Exchange

If you are ready to start the same day, we will ask you some questions and you will provide all the information required to start your divorce.

3. Court Filing

Within a couple of days, we will file your divorce application and start your case at the Ontario Superior Court. Your divorce case has officially started.

4. Serving Spouse

If you are filing a sole divorce (as opposed to a joint divorce), we will serve the court-stamped divorce documents on your spouse by regular mail.

5. Affidavit of Divorce

Once your spouse has been served and the necessary waiting period has lapsed, we will commission your affidavit of divorce and prepare it for court.

6. Court Filing

We will prepare the remaining documents, including the divorce order, and file them together with your affidavit of divorce at the courthouse.

7. Divorce Judgment

An Ontario Superior Court Judge will decide whether to grant your divorce based on the information and paperwork that is filed.

8. Final Divorce

Your divorce will take affect 31 days after the judge grants the divorce and signs the divorce order. At that time, you are legally divorced in Ontario.
