How Long Does it take to get a Divorce in Ontario for a Contested Divorce
Divorce with Other Relief
On the other hand, a Contested Divorce could take from 6 months to 36 months or more. Contested Divorces tend to be more complicated and involved issues such as Child Support, Custody, Spousal Support & Division of Property.
In a Contested Divorce, a party can apply to the court by filing a motion to separate the relief of Divorce from other relief claimed. You would need to speak to a Divorce Lawyer to identify if you will be eligible to have your claim for Divorce separated from the remaining case. It is possible but not always easy to get an order to separate Divorce from other claims.
In light of the fact that contested Divorces are more complicated and take longer to resolve, the legal costs are also higher for a Contested Divorce.
On average a Simple Contested Divorce could cost up to $5,000 + Tax
Moderately Complicated Divorce Could Cost approximately $7,000 + Tax.
It is common for Parties to enter into a Separation Agreement in Ontario to enable them to File for an Uncontested Divorce.
A Divorce Certificate can be collected after 30 days from the date Divorce Order has been issued.
