Important information about filing a sole or joint divorce in Ontario.

Grounds for divorce in Ontario.

In Ontario, there is only one ground for divorce: a breakdown of the marriage. This can be established in one of three ways:

  1. Separation: The spouses have lived separate and apart for at least one year with no chance of reconciliation.
  2. Adultery: One spouse has committed adultery and the other spouse cannot tolerate living with them.
  3. Cruelty: One spouse has treated the other spouse with physical or mental cruelty that makes it intolerable to continue living together.

While there are three ways to establish a breakdown of the marriage, divorce based on separation is the most common type of divorce filing in Ontario. One of the main reasons for this is because it is a simpler process and most parties are usually already separated for 12 months when they decide to file for divorce.

Since the Covid-19 Pandemic, the government has completely changed the system for filing a divorce in Ontario. You can now file your divorce completely online through the government portal but the various forms and the process can be tricky at times. It may be a good idea to seek legal advice depending on your particular situation.

Simple divorce in Ontario.

A simple divorce in Ontario means that there are no claims being made on the divorce Application aside from the divorce claim. A simple divorce can be filed solely or as a joint divorce application.

The majority of our clients seek to file for a simple and uncontested divorce after both parties have signed the separation agreement. Filing a joint divorce is quite possibly the most efficient process to move forward and have your divorce granted by the Superior Court. Our family lawyers offer a flat-rate legal fee to complete your divorce and our process allows for both parties so sign all the important documents electronically from the comfort of their home. Once the divorce is granted, our firm will provide you with an electronic divorce Order issued by the court.

Once the divorce Order is granted by the court, you can apply for and obtain the optional divorce certificate. This divorce certificate will be required if you are planning to get remarried in Ontario in the future.

While you can certainly for divorce without legal advice, it is a good idea to seek help and guidance from a family lawyer if you separation involves children, property or potential support claims.
