How to Get an Uncontested Divorce
An Overview of Uncontested Divorce Proceedings in Ontario
An uncontested divorce is a court proceeding where the parties are mutually seeking a divorce, and have agreed on all related issues, such as support, division of property, and child custody and access. The uncontested divorce represents a simplified divorce procedure, in that court appearances are generally not required.
In addition to the Application, you must file:
- The original marriage certificate;
- Registration of Divorce Proceedings; and
- Affidavit of Service.
For assistance with these documents, see Additional Required Forms.
Finally, you will need to complete and file the forms related to any other form of relief that you and your spouse have agreed to along with the divorce.
If your divorce application includes agreed-upon arrangements for property division, or property division as well as child and/or spousal support, you will also need to file a Form 13.1: Financial Statement.
If your divorce application includes agreed-upon arrangements for child or spousal support but not division of property, you will need to file a Form 13: Financial Statement.
If your divorce application includes agreed-upon arrangements for custody and access, you must complete and file a Form 35.1: Parenting Affidavit.
