Hi,
I want to find out if you can get a divorce without contacting a lawyer if you are separated for 17 years and there is no more settlement to be done as all was divided at the time of the separation. Are there forms I can get to start the proceeding of a divorce.

Thanks,

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

You can find some detailed information regarding getting a divorce in Ontario in our Settlement.Org How can I get a divorce in Ontario? article.

Here is an excerpt,

How do I begin a divorce process?


Before starting a divorce, it is recommended that you seek legal advice from an expert in family law. An expert such as a lawyer can tell you how the law applies to your case and how you can protect your rights. You can find a lawyer or ask for some information and referrals at a Family Law Information Centre in an Ontario family court.

To start the divorce process, you must:
  • Fill out a divorce application.
  • Submit the application at an Ontario courthouse.
  • Pay the required court fees.
  • Follow any court rules and procedures given.

  • There are several costs to getting a divorce in Ontario. For that information, read the answer to How much does a divorce cost? on the website of the Ministry of the Attorney General.




    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.
