Grounds for Uncontested Divorce

If at least one of the spouses wants to terminate the marriage, the divorce proceeding can start. The Province of Ontario does not distinguish particular fault and no-fault grounds for divorce. In general, all divorces in Canada may be defined as no-fault ones since, according to family laws, marital misconduct cannot affect property division, spousal support, etc.

There are three official grounds for divorce in Ontario:

  • Living separate and apart for at least one year

It's worth noting that the spouses may file for divorce before the waiting period has passed, but the divorce cannot be finalized earlier.

Many couples use this time for writing up a Separation Agreement if they want to resolve all the disputed issues by themselves, out-of-court.

  • Adultery
  • Cruelty (physical or mental)

When getting a divorce based on adultery or cruelty, the plaintiff must submit evidence to the court. However, there is no need to wait a year to terminate the marriage.

To file and have prep done for my divorce, this was the best decision. I didn't have to go to courthouse or wait on a lawyer for what I believe to be a simple, clear cut case as it's a mutual decision between to adults that have not only married with children but grew up together from young kids. Not every relationship is a statistic of a negative outcome. Having this route to ge that each of us want works best so thank you for it!😎

I’m in Ontario, Canada and was skeptical of this service. I’ve been trying to divorce for 7 years and have spent over $25,000.00 in lawyer fees trying to do so. Ive gotten no where. This service is easy to use, quick to respond, and allows me the opportunity to file for divorce without a lawyer. My X won’t sign anything. I’m praying now the judge will grant the divorce regardless and set me free.
