THE LAWS ON DIVORCE IN CANADA & DIVORCE FORMS FOR EACH PROVINCE & REGION

Review your province's Family Law Act which deal with spousal and child support, division of property, and possession of the matrimonial home

CanLaw's Guide to the Law for the layperson on Divorce, Separation agreements, Custody, Access, Child Support, Spousal Support and Equalization issues.

B.C.'s new Family Law Act grants couples who have lived together for two or more years the same rights and regulations as married couples. So while no ink has hit a marriage certificate, one partner's new car suddenly becomes “family property”; student debt accrued by the other during the course of the relationship becomes “family debt." Men get shafted again.

DIVORCE FORMS

NO FAULT DIVORCE:

A no-fault divorce is, just that. The parties use marriage breakdown with no fault to either spouse. You both agree upon the divorce. If you never agreed upon anything else during the marriage, agree to agree on a no-fault divorce and save your estate and your sanity.

If you don't agree upon a no-fault divorce, you will both need lawyers. Many simple divorces end up in the lawyers hands when they could have been handled as a no-fault divorce.

Some couples who did not know about the no-fault divorce forms and kits have agreed upon the terms of the divorce and then one spouse will go to a lawyer to get the "papers drawn up".

Average divorce costs using lawyers now run around $40,000 totally wiping out an estate and drag the proceeding on for over three years. With a no-fault divorce kit it could have all been over in 60 days at a cost of a few hundred dollars for court filing fees.

It does not take a rocket scientist to complete the forms in a divorce kit. Just follow the instructions. Be sure to have all signatures notarized before submission to the court. The forms provide for custody, visitation, division of assets, liabilities and other needs.
