What is Divorce i.T.?

Divorce i.T. is an online software that prepares your divorce documents for you.  It is the only divorce software of its kind in Canada. It is designed to complete all the necessary forms required by the Courts. Divorce i.T. will lead you through each document step-by-step by prompting you with easy-to-answer questions consisting of yes/no, multiple choice or fill-in-the-blanks.  After completing your session, Divorce i.T. will auto-fill all your relevant forms related to your case.

What types of Divorce Applications does Divorce i.T. prepare?

Divorce i.T. prepares two kinds of Divorce Application (Uncontested):  

Simple Divorce – a request for a divorce made by one spouse (one spouse completes and signs the documents) claiming divorce only with no other claims (e.g. no claims for custody, access, support, etc); OR,  

Joint Divorce – a request for a divorce made by both spouses (both spouses must complete and sign the documents) claiming divorce together.

 

What is Uncontested Divorce?

An Uncontested Divorce is when both spouses agree to a divorce.  If one spouse disagrees to the divorce than it is contested.

 

A Joint Divorce is started by both spouses together therefore it is uncontested. Each spouse agrees to the divorce and each spouse signs the Divorce Application and Affidavit for Divorce.  You are not required to serve (give notice) your Divorce Application on your spouse. 

 

A Simple Divorce is started by one spouse only.  Only one spouse signs the Divorce Application.  You are required to serve (give notice) your Divorce Application on your spouse.  A Simple Divorce is intended to be uncontested but in some cases, the other spouse is NOT agreeable to the divorce or may want to make additional claims in the divorce proceeding.  Remember, a Simple Divorce is a claim for divorce only (with no other claims such as support, custody, access, etc); therefore, if you are served with an Answer from your spouse (seeking other claims or opposing your claim for divorce) than your Simple Divorce is no longer Simple or Uncontested.  Note:  When starting a Divorce Application by way of Simple Divorce, ensure that your spouse is agreeable to the divorce and that all Family Law matters have been settled.

What divorce forms will Divorce i.T. provide me?

Included with your Simple or Joint Divorce Application, Divorce i.T. will complete three (four if Joint Divorce) additional forms.  These forms are mandatory and must be filed in Court in order to get a divorce.  These forms are:

►Divorce Registration - a form that advises Central Registry of Divorce Proceeding in Ottawa that you have started a divorce.  This Registry keeps records of all divorce applications.  If there is another divorce involving the same two spouses, the Registry notifies the Court that there is a duplicate divorce proceeding.

►Affidavit for Divorce - a form that advises the Judge that you have addressed all the requirements for a Simple or Joint divorce pursuant to the Divorce Act and Family Law Rules and that you agree to its contents.

►Divorce Order - a form that confirms the granting of your divorce and that the divorce officially becomes effective 31-days from the date the Judge grants it.

 

Finally, to tie up all loose ends, Divorce i.T. has also prepared your Continuing Record.  A person who starts a Divorce Application must create this Record.  A Continuing Record is a red record that contains all the court documents you and your spouse files in Court. This Record remains in your file and stays in the Court. When you issue/file your Divorce Application it will be inserted in this Record.  You will receive:  

►Continuing Record - a form/cover sheet with the names, addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses of all the parties.  This sheet is titled "Continuing Record".  It must be printed or copied on red paper.

►Cumulative Table of Contents – a sheet that lists all the court documents filed.  It lists the name of the document, the date it was signed and filed, the party who filed the document and where the document is located in the Continuing Record.  The Cumulative Table of Contents is updated every time a document is filed in Court.

►Endorsement Sheet – a sheet for the Judges to write their comments, directions or orders.
