Divorce

Details

Divorce

  • You (or your spouse) have lived in British Columbia at least one year prior to starting your divorce.
  • You can demonstrate that your marriage has broken down and you have been separated for at least one year.
  • The court is satisfied that you have made reasonable arrangements for any children, including child support, spousal support, and division of family property and debt.

Although 80% of divorces in Canada are uncontested, meaning you and your spouse both agree on all your family law issues and only need to apply for a divorce order without a lawyer. If you have been unable to resolve any issues regarding division of assets or property, spousal support, child custody, access to children, child support or any other legal issue, it is important that you discuss your options with a family lawyer.
