Hello, thank you for the question.
It would be difficult for you to make your divorce application from where you are. Documents have to be sworn, served, and personally filed. You should get a lawyer in Ontario to help you do this. It'll take some time, and probably around $1500 all in, but I can't guarantee what other lawyers charge.
Once retained your lawyer would prepare the Application with the marriage certificate and the separation agreement, get it served on your ex and filed, and see it through. There's a moderate amount of paperwork involved.
Lawyers aren't hard to find online, or if you ask friends and family in Ontario then I'm sure you'll get referrals.
Do you have any specific questions about the divorce process?
If you did it all yourself, you'd still have to pay the filing fees plus taxes. And depending on the specifics of the documents filed, those fees will be $450-$600. When you contact a lawyer and they quote $1500, those fees are included in the retainer. Also, if you see "divorce for $200" advertised then clearly the filing fees aren't included.
Anything else about this topic that I can help with?
I'm still here. I observe that you've seen my replies but I'm not seeing any response from you.
Any new developments? If so then we can discuss it. If you don't need my input any further then that's fine. Don't forget about your deposit to the site, you can ask customer service to get it back if you wish, or leave it for another future question.
