Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I am sorry to hear this.
You get divorced based on residency. So if you have both been living in Alberta for the last year at least then you must get divorced in Alberta.
It does not matter where you got married.
Does that fully answer your question?Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
It is not up to you. Anyone can get divorced.
He can apply for the divorce after you have been separated for one year and you cannot contest that as that is all that is needed for a divorce.
After one year he could apply. If you contest you have to go to court but if ignore the documents he will get the divorce by default.
But if there are issues about support and property then they should not be left for the year so he will start an application for a division of assets soon most likely if there are any and for support if he wants you to provide spousal support. On the other hand if you need spousal support or if you want to claim an interest in assets in his name you need to get a lawyer now so you can make your claim.
The divorce cannot be granted for one year unless he says you committed adultery or cruelty and then you could contest that.
Then there would be a trial and it would be longer than one year.
If he goes by way of separation it is after the one year.
You are very welcome.
