Protecting your rights and your family’s best interests
The formal process of divorce consists of filing court forms with the Court of Queen’s Bench. These forms often begin with the Statement of Claim for Divorce and ends with the Certificate of Divorce.
In many cases divorces are reached at the end of settlement negotiations as opposed to constant Court applications. This means that the divorcing couple have agreed upon how they are going to settle their parenting, support and property issues. Some processes used to achieve an uncontested divorce are the Mediation process and Collaborative Family Law. Once the parties agree on the terms of their divorce, they are able to obtain a consent divorce order without the cost of a trial.
In the event that a decision maker is required to help the parties finalize their issues, the parties can make use of the traditional Court system or use a private arbitrator.
Divorce costs are affected by:
- The spouses’ level of cooperation and disclosure during the process
- The complexity of family property issues
- Whether the divorce is by consent or requires a trial
