Divorce Law FAQ

What Are Grounds For Seeking Divorce In Canada?

In Canada, the grounds for seeking a divorce are

  1. The parties are now separated and have been separated for at least one (1) year at the determination of the divorce proceeding
  2. The individual seeking a divorce claims that the other has since the celebration of the marriage, committed adultery
  3. The individual seeking a divorce claims the other has since the celebration of the marriage, treated the Plaintiff with physical or mental cruelty of such kind as to render intolerable the continued cohabitation of the spouses.

The most common ground for seeking and filing for divorce is #1. Therefore, in Canada, you do not need to provide any proof or reason as to why you want to separate and divorce.

How Does The Process Work?
When filing for a Divorce, one of the spouses will need to imitate the process (The “Applicant”) by drafting and filing a Statement of Claim for Divorce. If your divorce also deals with the issues of any family property then a Statement of Claim for Divorce and Division of Family Property needs to be filed. It is important that you seek legal advice from a divorce lawyer to assist you in preparing your Statement of Claim.

The Statement of Claim will also set out your requests for child support, parenting and custody if you have children and spousal support. At the end of the Statement of Claim it asks for the “Remedy Sought in the Divorce” with many options to check mark off on such as a “divorce judgement”, “custody”, “access or parenting arrangements” “retroactive child support”. It is important that you know what you are entitled to seek when filing your Statement of Claim for Divorce.

Will I Have To Go To Court?

Not all divorce proceedings require going to court. However, some high conflict contested divorces due require litigation.
