How to Apply for a Divorce
You need to apply to a court for a divorce.
As a general rule, to be able to divorce in Canada, you must meet ALL of the following criteria:
- You and your spouse are legally married under the laws of Canada, or under the laws of another country and that marriage is recognized in Canada.
- Your marriage has broken down.
- You or your spouse lived in the Canadian province or territory where you apply for your divorce for a full year immediately before making your application. (See the exception to this rule for certain non-residents who married in Canada)
Grounds for Divorce
Canada has no-fault divorce. The only ground for a divorce in the Divorce Act is marriage breakdown. The Divorce Act says you can show your marriage has broken down if any ONE of the following criteria applies to you:
- You have been living apart for one year or more.
- Your spouse has been physically or mentally cruel to you.
- Your spouse has committed adultery.
If you apply for a divorce on the basis of a one-year separation, you can live together for up to 90 days (either before or after you file the application) to try to reconcile. If things do not work out, you can continue your action for divorce as if you had not spent the time together.
Some couples choose to separate but still live in the same house. A lawyer can tell you what factors courts may consider when they are deciding if you are separated.
How to Start a Divorce Application
The Divorce Act is a federal law, but the provinces and territories are responsible for the processes for getting a divorce. You need to fill out the right forms for your province or territory and file them in a court. Or, your lawyer can do this work for you. You must follow the rules of the court that processes your divorce. You may also have to pay an application fee.
It is always a good idea to get legal advice before you apply. A lawyer can tell you about your rights and responsibilities and explain how the law applies to your situation. He or she can also explain what other documents you may need to give the court.
Depending on your province or territory, you might be able to get divorce application forms and information from:
- the website or office of your provincial or territorial Ministry of Justice or Attorney General
It will probably be best if you and your spouse can agree on major issues such as child support, custody and parenting arrangements, spousal support and property issues before you apply for a divorce.
If you cannot agree, you can ask the court to decide. But if you do that, your divorce may take longer to complete.
It will probably also be much more expensive and stressful for you and your family if the court has to make these decisions for you.
Your province or territory may offer family justice services such as mediation to help you make difficult decisions.
Exception to Residency Requirements
As a general rule, only Canadian residents can divorce in Canada. If neither you nor your spouse lives in Canada, you cannot get a divorce under Canada's Divorce Act. But you may be able to end your marriage under the Civil Marriage Act if you meet BOTH of the following criteria:
- You married in Canada; and
- You cannot undo your marriage in the country where you or your spouse lives because that country does not recognize your Canadian marriage.
To undo your marriage under the Civil Marriage Act, you would need to apply to a Superior Court in the province or territory where you married. A lawyer in that province or territory may be able to advise you on what you need to do. You may also be able to get information from a Superior Court or from the Department of Justice or Attorney General in the applicable province.
A process under the Civil Marriages Act only ends the marriage. You would need to resolve other issues such as child support and spousal support under the laws of the country where you live.

The procedure of registration of divorce through the courts
Perhaps the most important in the dissolution of marriage through court is the decision of the disputed issues before going to court. Therefore, as the mutual/bilateral agreement of the spouses on the divorce and there are no disputes about children or property, and is certainly grounds for a quick divorce in court.
Here is an example. Quick and easy divorce through the courts with children, you need to make an agreement that will define the substance:
– with whom of the spouses will be living minor children (or each of the children) after a divorce;
– who of the spouses will assume maintenance obligations, in what amounts will be levied for child support and in some cases one of the spouses has the right to the content (e.g., the child’s mother on leave to care for a child up to 3 years);
– the order of implementation of parental rights that man will live separately from their children.
The conclusion of this agreement is not binding on the divorce court with children, but will greatly simplify and speed up the process of divorce.
Then briefly about the process. Divorce court is strictly in accordance with the procedural laws and consists of the following steps:
- 1) the claimant files a statement of claim;
- 2) the court accepts the application and assigns a hearing date;
- 3) Next, the court examines the case at the hearing;
- 4) the Court shall decide;
- 5) the Court decision enters into force;
- 6) the Parties receive a copy of the court decision;
- 7) the Decision shall be registered by the Ministry of justice of Ukraine to the Registrar.
- Now go through each of these stages dentaline.
- Prepare a statement of claim and divorce papers
There is a General concept of “file for divorce”. The latter means the preparation and filing of the judgment properly drafted statement of claim about divorce and complete the necessary documents.
In accordance with article 119 of the Civil procedural code of Ukraine the statement of claim is submitted in writing and must contain:
- 1) name court with which the application is submitted;
- 2) the name (names) of plaintiff and defendant, and the name of the representative plaintiff, if the statement of claim is filed by the representative, their place of residence (stay) or location, postcode, number of means of communication, if known;
- 3) the content of the claim;
- 4) the price of the claim relative to the claims of property character;
- 5) a statement of the facts which the plaintiff proves your requirements;
- 6) indication of evidence that confirm each circumstance, the existence of grounds for exemption of proof;
- 7) list of documents attached to the application.
- The statement of claim signed by the claimant or his representative indicating the date of its submission to the court at the defendant’s place of residence, except in the circumstances applying at the place of residence of the plaintiff (in the presence of minors or in connection with the condition).
After the adoption of the statement of claim and documents, the court assigns a date for a preliminary meeting (in the last the court will determine the readiness of the case for consideration, and will also make attempts to reconcile the parties and to invite them to enter into the settlement agreement), and the main meeting (where we will discuss the circumstances of the case and decided). Date of the first court is appointed not earlier than one month after filing of application about which the parties are notified by a written summons (or SMS messages in case of prior submission of the application on the following message).
At the beginning of the hearing checks the presence of the parties, explaining the rights and duties are considered the parties motions.
Further, the court shall call upon the parties: listens to the plaintiff’s claims, agreement or disagreement with these claims of the defendant, consider the evidence of the parties. The last part of the hearing are debate alternate statements of the parties regarding the claims and appeal to the court about their satisfaction.
- After the above and considering the case materials, the court retires to the conference room for decision-making.
- The parties announced the resolution part of court decision on divorce, and a document with full text (introductory, descriptive, reasoning and operative parts) given five days after the announcement of the operative part.
- When the couple did not reach agreement in matters concerning children or property, a judgment can be defined the conditions for further residence of children, maintenance obligations towards children and the obligations of the maintenance of the wife, the conditions of section of common property.
- In accordance with the procedural law – a court decision comes into force 30 days after its adoption, if from parties not receiving the appeal.
But, in the case of filing by one of the parties appeals against the decision of the court, it shall enter into force after consideration of the complaint if it was not cancelled. If on appeal the court’s decision cancelled, changed or adopted a new decision, it shall enter into force immediately.
Thus, on the basis of the foregoing, termination of marriage is the date of entry into force of the relevant court decision.
Procedure, after the 30-day appeal deadline, each party is given a copy of the decision of the court with the mark of entry into force. In some cases, the court only gives an extract from the judicial decisions are only valid for submission to the authority of the REGISTRAR.
The authorities carried out delgarno registration of divorce by the court after receiving the copy of the judgment of divorce, or extract from it. As of the date of receipt of the certificate of divorce is not necessary, such a document after a divorce in court does not exist.
Some points when making a divorce through the courts
Please note that triple failure to appear at the hearing is the basis for the proceedings in the absence of the parties (defendant) and judgment – satisfaction of the second party (plaintiff). The lack of a good reason or not informing about it will be the reason for the ban to appeal against judicial decision made in the hearing in the absence of the parties (defendant).
If the hearing was not one of the parties, the divorce case is closed.
In the case when you don’t want to be personally involved in the divorce process and attend to unpleasant trials, there are more reasonable solutions to the problem than the failure to appear. For example, You may be obliged to act on his behalf in court the representative – lawyer.
Divorce procedure usually takes from 2 to 6 months (in our experience, the average time of divorce lasts 2-3 months) and depends on factors such as mutual agreement or disagreement of the parties, presence of children, and disputes about them, existence of common property and its partition. There are other factors affecting the time of trial.
The financial side of divorce, but rather the cost of the registration fee, and additional legal and notary services, of course, important. You just need to know how much a divorce through the courts and be ready to bear certain costs.
Thus, the cost of the divorce through the courts consists of:
– the court fee for filing a statement of termination of marriage (the Law of Ukraine “On court fee”, in 2018, the fee for a divorce is 704.80 UAH.);
Divorce in Ukraine
As in other countries, the procedure for divorce in Ukraine, the subsequent division of property, and the definition of rights and obligations in relation to minors are provided for by current legislation and, as appropriate, is regulated by the relevant authorities. You can get acquainted with the procedure of divorce in Ukraine by studying the relevant articles of the Family Code (UK), where different ways of divorce are stipulated.
How to get divorced in Ukraine?
The SC of Ukraine provides for divorce through RAGS, if the decision to divorce is unanimous and there are no common minor children in the family.
This method of divorce is much simpler and is possible in the absence of one of the parties, if there is a notarized statement of the absent. Also, a divorce in Ukraine through the RAGS is much cheaper and faster.
In this case, the couple filed a statement, drawn up after the application for divorce in Ukraine. After submitting the application, the spouses are given one month for the final decision.
A month after the application is filed, a certificate of divorce is issued and a corresponding note is made in the passport. If one of the spouses is recognized as missing, convicted for more than 3 years or recognized incompetent, then in the RAGS you can get a divorce on the application of one of the parties.
In the presence of minor children, disputes over the division of property, disagreement on the divorce of one of the parties, and in other disputable situations, divorce can be effected only in a judicial procedure.
In the presence of children, the spouses must file an application for divorce with the court, as well as a written agreement stipulating the fulfillment of obligations towards the child and regulating the rights of the parents. The same applies to the notarized agreement on alimony, if the parties came to a unified agreement.
If there is no consent between the spouses, then the court will file a statement of claim in the place of residence of the spouse from whom it is necessary to obtain consent.
The trial is also appointed not earlier than one month after the application was filed. An application for the division of property is recommended to be filed separately from the application for divorce.
If you also indicate in the divorce application the division of property, the decision to dissolve the marriage will be made only after the distribution of the property, which can significantly delay the whole process. If you apply separately, then the divorce will be registered earlier.
But when dividing property, do not forget about the limitation period, after which the property is not subject to the section. At the trial it is necessary to take into account that the court decision on divorce can be appealed only within 10 days after the dissolution of the marriage.
Also, if there is a court decision, you do not need to undergo additional registration at the RAGS.
In each situation there may be special circumstances that are additionally considered in court and affect the final decision. Therefore, in case of divorce through the court, you can not delay the submission of documents, if possible consult with lawyers, what would subsequently avoid problems.
Documents for divorce in Ukraine
Application for divorce in Ukraine can be filed by both spouses or one of the spouses, depending on the circumstances. The following documents will also be needed:
- copies of passports;
- a copy of the marriage certificate;
- marriage agreement (if it was concluded at the time of marriage registration);
- copies of birth certificates of children (if there are general minor children).
In addition to the standard set of documents in different situations, an application or agreement on the division of property is required, a notarized contract on the upbringing and provision of a child, in which the amount and order of payment of maintenance can be stipulated. In the event of controversial situations, additional documents may be needed, for example, a certificate of income, testimony of witnesses, documents confirming ownership.
How much does a divorce in Ukraine cost?
The cost of divorce in Ukraine depends primarily on the method of divorce, and is stipulated by the current legislation.
Dissolution of marriage through RAGS requires payment of the state fee (if the divorce is not the first, then in a double amount), and payment for information and technical services.
Receipts for payment are usually attached to the application. The state fee for registration of divorce is also paid.
The cost of divorce through court in Ukraine is more expensive and depends on the situation.
Obligations remain payment of fees and services, as in the case of divorce in the RAGS, but the legal advice is additionally paid, when dividing the property, a certain percentage of the claim value, property appraisers and BTI services are paid for when real estate is divided. In addition, a representation in the court, the re-registration of documents, loan payments and other services that may be required may be paid.
Divorce statistics in Ukraine
Statistics for the current year indicate an increase in the number of divorces, which amounted to 4.5 per 1000 population. It is also noted that due to the deterioration of the financial situation, many spouses, after the actual dissolution of relations, do not register the divorce officially.
At the same time, the absence of marriage contracts causes conflicts and forced living in one territory, which causes psychological harm to both former spouses and their children.
Such errors should be taken into account by those who have not yet entered into marriage, and initially stipulate property rights, so as to avoid unnecessary problems.
In case of divorce in Ukraine, as in other countries, it is necessary to take into account that changes and amendments can be made to the legislation, therefore, faced with a problem situation, first of all it is necessary to study the latest version of the UK, consult a lawyer, and then proceed to actions.
My bride living in Ukraine divorced more than two years ago She has an
Family Law: termination of parental rights, rights of the child, child support. (Ukraine)
My bride living in Ukraine divorced more than two years ago. She has an eight-year old daughter living with her in Ukraine. I want us all to live in France where I live, after we get married.
But she consulted two lawyers in Ukraine, and they both told her that without her ex-husband`s consent she would not be able to take her child from Ukraine.
Meanwhile, it has no difference if we are married or not.
Please, explain to me how the Ukrainian law handles this situation. Does she really have to wait 10 years until her daughter is 18 to be able to build her further life? She sees it impossible to immigrate without her daughter.
Can she and her daughter go for a short holiday to France? Or is the child`s father`s consent is necessary in this case as well?
Please, tell me about it in detail. Could you possibly help?
Your issue could be solved favorably by way of concluding an agreement with the child`s father or in court. It is only a valid court decision that can allow the mother to take her child abroad without obtaining the father`s permit.
As a rule, a child`s parents have equal rights to upbringing of their child and equal obligations as to his/her maintenance. Pursuant to Clause 157 of Ukraine`s Family Code, issues of upbringing of children are jointly solved by parents.
The parent living with the child has no right to prevent the parent living separately to communicate with the child and participate in his/her upbringing, unless such communication inhibits the child`s normal development.
Parents also have equal rights when they solve the issue of determining the place where the child will live.
Pursuant to Clause 160 of Ukraine`s Family Code, the place of residence of a child who is under 10, shall be determined upon consent of both parents, When determining the place of residence of a child at the age of 10 of older, the child`s opinion is also considered. If parents live separately, the place of residence of a child of 14 or older is to be determined by him/her independently.
If parents cannot come to agreement as to where their child should live, this issue can be solved by a tutorship and guardianship authority or by court.
Provisions of Ukraine`s laws on the procedure for travel of under-age children within the territory of Ukraine and exit of children outside Ukraine also imply obtaining consents from both parents (Clause 313 CC RF). Otherwise might be agreed upon by a contract between parents or by court decision.
Pursuant to Item 2-1 of the Regulations of crossing the state border by Ukraine`s citizens approved by the Resolution of Ukraine`s Cabinet of Ministers, # 57 dated 27.01.1995, citizens under the age of 16 can cross the state border with the purpose to exit outside Ukraine only with both parents` consent and accompanied by them or by people authorized by them, or by a court decision.
Thus, until the child is 16 years old, his/her exit outside Ukraine with one of the parents is requires the second parent`s consent certified by a notary, and, in the absence of same, — a decision of the competent court to that effect.
However, Ukraine`s legislation provides for cases when the child`s exit abroad is possible without the second parent`s consent. Subject to par.
2, part 1 of Item 2-2 of the Regulations of crossing the state border by Ukraine`s citizens without the child`s other parent`s consent certified by a notary, a child under the age of 16 can go outside Ukraine in case the child`s travel document contains an entry of leaving for permanent residence outside Ukraine or a note of consulate registration with a diplomatic mission of Ukraine abroad.
- Besides, a child`s exit abroad without the child`s other parent`s consent certified by a notary is possible in case the other parent has been deprived of parent rights, or a court decision is produced about the court issuing a permit to exit outside Ukraine without the other parent`s accompanying and consent.
- The court can issue such permit considering specific circumstances of a case. However, the prerequisites for obtaining such a permit are as follows:
- • To produce evidence of the proper living conditions for a child abroad (housing conditions different from the housing conditions in Ukraine in terms of better quality);
- • guaranteed income of the parent accompanying the child abroad;
- • often – a foreign spouse` s affidavit providing guarantees to ensure a high level of living to his/her family, including housing conditions, school education, leisure arrangement and other life areas.
- • Guarantees of a child getting, if necessary, medical assistance abroad (insurance);
- • Financial guarantees of covering expenses related to living abroad;
- • Data on geopolitical situation in the country (no military actions, strikes, revolts);
- • Guarantees of enrolment of a child to school and provision of him/her with a better education than in Ukraine.
- Meanwhile, it is important to confirm that the parent staying in Ukraine cannot or does not want to ensure the proper living conditions for the child, nor participates in the child`s life or is indifferent as to how the child is doing.
