Before using our Alberta divorce service, please make sure that you meet the following requirements:
- Separated for One Year. Your divorce must be on the grounds of a one-year separation. You may start the divorce proceeding at any time after separation; however, you cannot apply for the divorce order until you have been separated for at least one year. Due to the complex and time-consuming nature of obtaining a divorce in Alberta on the basis of adultery or cruelty, we recommend you consult with a family lawyer before proceeding on these grounds.
- One Year Residency. You or your spouse must have resided in Alberta for at least one year prior to commencing your divorce proceeding and you or your spouse must continue to reside in Alberta for the duration of the divorce.
- Uncontested Divorce. You and your spouse must agree to a divorce OR you expect the divorce to be uncontested. If at any time the divorce proceeding becomes contested, you may want to discuss your options with a family lawyer.
- Location of Spouse. You must know the whereabouts of your spouse.
- Children of Marriage. If there are children of the marriage, all issues with respect to custody and child support have been resolved between you and your spouse. Child support must meet the Federal Child Support Guidelines. Please see our resources page for links to government websites which explain the Guidelines in further detail.
- Agreement on Division of Assets. You have resolved or plan to resolve any issues with respect to division of family assets and spousal support. If you have not yet resolved these issues, it is strongly recommended that you obtain legal advice as you may be precluded from seeking such relief at a later date.
- Original Marriage Certificate. You must have your original government issued Certificate of Marriage or Certified Copy of the Registration of Marriage. The certificate of marriage issued by a church or the person who performed the wedding ceremony will not be accepted by the court.
(You may call 1-780-427-7013 to order an Alberta marriage certificate.)
Although the majority of divorces in Alberta are uncontested and do not require the use of a lawyer, there are some couples we simply cannot help. We are not a law firm and cannot provide legal advice. If you have been unable to resolve any issues regarding division of assets or property, spousal support, child custody, access to children, child support or any other legal issue, it is important that you discuss your options with a family lawyer. For your convenience, we have provided a list of lawyer referral services on our resources page.
