If you’re considering getting a divorce, it’s essential to understand the process and the grounds for divorce.
Grounds for Divorce in Canada:
In Canada, there are three main grounds for divorce:
Separation: The most common ground for divorce is living separate and apart from your spouse for at least one year. During this time, you and your spouse must have had no reconciliation attempts.
Adultery: If your spouse has committed adultery, you have the option to seek a divorce on this ground.
Cruelty: If your spouse has treated you with physical or mental cruelty that makes it unbearable for you to continue the marriage, you can apply for a divorce on this basis. It is always a good idea to speak with a lawyer about your rights and responsibilities prior to commencing a Divorce Application.
