What is the difference between Simple Divorce, Uncontested Divorce, Uncontested Joint Divorce and Contested?

Simple Divorce

A simple divorce in Ontario means that the only relief claimed in the divorce application is to dissolve the marriage by way of a court order and no other relief is claimed. As per the Divorce Act Canada has a no-fault divorce process.
Therefore, a simple divorce in Ontario is also commonly referred to as uncontested divorce since the only claim before the court is a breakdown of the marriage.  

Uncontested Divorce

An uncontested divorce in Ontario is also commonly referred to as a simple divorce in Ontario, which means that the only relief claimed in the divorce application is to dissolve the marriage by way of a court order and no other relief is claimed. Since the only claim before the court is a breakdown of the marriage which can easily be established by way of one-year separation, therefore, it becomes uncontested.

Uncontested Joint Divorce

An uncontested joint divorce in Ontario means both spouses file a joint divorce application to dissolve their marriage by way of a court order and no other relief is claimed, except a claim for a divorce order.
The court process granting a divorce order can become quicker since both spouses file a joint divorce application. However, the one-year separation period cannot be reduced.

Contested Divorce

A contested divorce in Ontario means a spouse has filed a divorce application to dissolve their marriage plus additional claims such as custody, child support, spousal support, divorce of property, matrimonial home and much more. In other words, a contested application is filed where the parties are not in agreement about the terms of separation. A contested divorce application can be commenced soon upon separation.
