Family Law - Divorce

A divorce, in law, represents the final legal termination of the marital relationship enabling the parties to sever their emotional ties, move on with their lives and remarry, should they choose to do so. 

There are three possible grounds for obtaining a divorce in Canada:

  • cruelty,
  • adultery, and
  • separation of one year or more.

A divorce based on separation can be commenced at any time but cannot be completed until the requisite year has passed. 

While we encourage people to settle the substantive issues arising from their separation prior to commencing an application in Court for a divorce, each situation is unique and can only be assessed after an in-depth consultation.

Let Sorley & Still Help You: Sorley & Still’s lawyers can help you with your divorce application.
