Understanding Canadian divorce laws


Divorce laws in Canada

The main federal family law in Canada is the Divorce Act. The Act only applies to married couples who have divorced or who have applied for a divorce. But while the Act is a federal law, the processes for getting a divorce fall under provincial or territorial law.

Please note that Canada does recognize divorces from other countries, but only when the divorce was valid under the laws of that foreign country, and when one or both spouses lived in that foreign country for a year immediately before applying for divorce.
