A formal divorce offers opportunities for certain rights such as spousal support, child support, and property rights. You can also define obligations, such as parenting obligations, spousal support obligations, and division of family assets and debts. This will help avoid future disagreements and allow you to securely and peacefully begin the next chapter of your life.
We are committed to making this process as easy and stress-free as possible, by guiding you through all the issues that need to be addressed and helping you avoid unnecessary risks. We understand that this is a sensitive time for you and we will guide you through the entire process, from communicating with your spouse and their lawyer to representing you in court and taking care of all paperwork and formalities. Communication and transparency in the process is key. We will always keep you updated and provide all necessary support.
In Canada, you must apply to the Court for a divorce.
If you are divorcing amicably, meaning you have both peacefully agreed to the terms of your divorce such as parenting, support, and property issues, you can apply for a desk divorce. We can simply prepare the paperwork and submit it to court. You will then receive a divorce order in 2-4 months.
If you are divorcing non-amicably, meaning you have disagreements over anything such as spousal support, child support, or property division, you will need to go through divorce litigation. Your lawyer will guide you through the process. However, this can be a long, stressful, and expensive process.Inquire About Next Steps
