To file for divorce in Ontario, the following criteria must be met:

    1. At least one of the spouses must have habitually lived in Ontario for at least one full year, prior to the commencement of divorce proceedings.
    2. You must be living separate lives at the time the divorce action is started.
    3. Filing jointly (if possible) is easier, quicker, less adversarial, and less expensive than filing a sole action (requires the full cooperation of both spouses).
    4. Divorce actions on the grounds of separation typically take from 2 to 4 months to conclude but it is not necessary to wait until one year of separation to begin the process.

Required Documents:

    1. A copy of: your original marriage certificate or original registration of your marriage.
    2. If applicable: a copy of all Court Orders, Separation Agreements, and other written arrangements which pertain to the marriage or any children of the marriage.
    3. If you have only an oral agreement, please describe the terms and provide the date of the agreement.
