What you do is fill out the forms that are required. Attend at the courthouse and have the divorce application issued by the court. Then you have your spouse served (I know she is not in Canada but she must be served) and then you file the forms with proof of service at the courthouse.

I assume she will ignore the forms and you will be able to note her in default after the required time has passed. You will get the divorce judgment signed without seeing a judge.

Here is a link to the forms:

http://ontariocourtforms.on.ca/en/family-law-rules-forms/

You need to use a Form 8A: Application and a Form 36: Affidavit for Divorce.

And you will also need:

The original marriage certificate

Registration of Divorce Proceedings

Affidavit of Service

You don't need to do financial statements if you are just seeking a divorce and nothing more.

Does that help?

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.
