Divorce In Ontario Cost

How much does a divorce in Ontario cost? This is a common question among couples seeking to end their marriage. Divorce expenses can go either of two ways, depending on how you and your partner handle it. One, it can be a hassle-free process that takes about a year to complete. Or two, it can be a demanding process that costs you a lot of money, time, and peace of mind.

At Positive Solutions, we offer top mediation services to divorcing couples. Our aim is to get our clients through the process without them losing their time, money, or sanity as they fight in court. With our unexcelled services, you can settle on an agreement with your soon to be ex-spouse on matters such as child custody, spousal support, and property division.

Overview of the Cost of Various Divorce Services, Including Lawyer Fees and Other Fees

Are you wondering, ‘how can I get a divorce in Ontario? Or, ‘how do I apply for a divorce by myself?’ If you’re making a joint application or applying on your own, here’s what you need to do:

  • Get forms from a bookstore or courthouse, which you'll fill for your divorce application.
  • Submit the forms to a courthouse in Ontario.
  • Pay court fees required for the application.
  • Follow procedures or rules given by the court.

Once you’ve filed your application, what follows next depends on whether or not it’s a contested divorce. If both of you agree on the divorce terms, it's uncontested, and the court will give the order within the stipulated time. But if one of you disagrees with any aspect of the divorce, it becomes contested and may go through motions, trials, and appeals before the judge signs the order.

Costs During Divorce

So, how much does it cost to get a divorce in Ontario? For the court fees, you’ll pay $447. The payment required when filing the application is on average $157 and an additional $10 for the Department of Justice. Next, you’ll pay $280 before the court reviews your application.

If you hire a lawyer during the divorce process in Ontario, you’ll have more expenses. An attorney provides guidance on how to best approach the divorce and can apply on your behalf. How much they’ll cost depends on how long they remain in your service. Lawyer fees in Ontario vary, with some charging around $300 per hour, and others double that.

On average, you may end up spending between $1000-$2000 for an uncontested divorce. If you and your partner can’t agree on things, your expenses may escalate to tens of thousands of dollars.
