Divorce in Ontario Costs, Court fees & Lawyers Fees
Total Court Cost to File a Divorce in Ontario is $632, to be paid in two installments. When you file your application, you need to pay the first installment of $212, and you will pay the second installment of $420 when the Judge will review your application. You do not have to pay tax on this amount since you will be making a payment to Government.
You can pay cash, cheque or money order. If you are unable to pay you can request a fee waiver which means you won’t pay most of the court fees. Court Fees Waiver is not common but it can be granted in special circumstances.
