Deer Lake Law Group - Burnaby Lawyers
Whether you’re married or in a marriage-like / common law relationship, it is important to speak with a Family Lawyer early in the process and have a strategy in mind
If you and your spouse have no unresolved issues, you can apply to the Supreme Court of British Columbia for a Judge to legally terminate your marriage with a Divorce Order. This is a simple process with just a few steps. Generally, a Final Order for Divorce can be obtained in 3-4 months.
You and your spouse can apply for a divorce jointly (Notice of Joint Family Claim) but if you are not 100% certain that your spouse will cooperate with you, then the sole claim (Notice of Family Claim) is recommended. With a sole claim, you are the Applicant and you maintain control over the divorce process and do not need to rely on your spouse, the Respondent, to sign any court forms.
To start the divorce process, you need your original Certificate of Marriage and you must meet the residency requirements so that the Supreme Court of BC can take jurisdiction over your legal proceeding.
After The Divorce
After the Final Order for Divorce is granted, and 31 days have passed, you can request the ‘Certificate of Divorce’.
Living Separate and Apart
Relationship breakups are complicated and stressful so you want to work with a Lawyer who understands the complexities involved in restructuring your life following a separation, and someone with the experience to guide you through the process with practical advice.
