Hi there -

If I was married in India (that is where my marriage certificate is from) and have lived in Canada since. If I get divorced in India - what do I need to do to make it legal in Canada?

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

You can find some detailed information in our Settlement.Org Will my foreign divorce be recognized in Canada? article.

Here is an excerpt,

If you were divorced outside Canada, you need to prove that your divorce was legal in that country before you can get re-married in Canada.




I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
