In the meantime, here is some helpful information regarding the divorce process in Ontario:
Timing: The simple divorce process in Ontario usually takes 2-4 months to complete. Please note that filing a “joint divorce” may be faster than if you file a “sole divorce.”
Cost: Our firm offers a flat-rate fee option for simple divorce cases, starting from $300 for the paperwork alone. The government court fee in Ontario is currently $447. This fee is paid in two separate payments of $167 and $280 during the different steps involved.
Court Fee Waiver: You may be eligible to waive the above government court fee of $447. This is based on your income and circumstances. We automatically assess each applicant for this waiver and will let you know if you qualify.
Who can use our service: Over 90% of divorce cases in Ontario are “uncontested” matters. This means that both parties agree that they want to be legally separated and divorced. If you are only asking the court for a divorce (not custody, support, division of property), then you can use our service.
What if I have children: You can file for a simple divorce even if you have children. In your Affidavit of Divorce,we will need explain who is financially responsible for the well-being of the children.
I can’t find my spouse: You can file for a simple divorce even if you are not aware of your spouse’s whereabouts. We will likely have to bring a motion in court asking the judge to dispense with service.
We hope you have found this information helpful. We will be in touch shortly.
