Joint divorce by email means that you respond to an email questionnaire about information relevant to your divorce. Subsequently, Rupture Québec sends you all the documents necessary to obtain your divorce by email, within a month, sometimes more during busy periods, as well as the instructions to proceed to get yourself of your divorce judgment. The documents are duly completed and personalized to your situation, all you have to do is sign them. This service does not include any meetings, conversations or emails to answer your questions. This service is only appropriate if you already have an agreement between you regarding your entire file, such as when you decided that there was nothing to share. For this service, you can not have dependent children. It is only a drafting and preparation service for procedures and documents, no opinion or advice is given as part of this service. NB If you are not represented by a lawyer, certain districts, including Quebec, require that you be present at the Court when the judge renders his judgment.

 

For a turnkey joint divorce, you benefit from a single meeting with a lawyer lasting from 1:00 to 1:30. During this meeting, we will settle your entire file, including the preparation and signing of your divorce proceedings. The swearing, production and file tracking service are included. Also, if one of the two spouses is absent during this meeting, he will have to sign the documents on his side without any assistance from us. In addition, if a second or third meeting is required, there will be additional fees of $ 100 per meeting.

Appointments for meetings are from Tuesday to Thursday at 7:00 pm. There are also appointments on Friday and Saturday, at 8:30 am, 10:00 am, 1:00 pm, 2:00 pm and 3:30 pm. You can book your appointment on the botton GO Appointment on the top right of the page.

The judgment of divorce is normally rendered between two and three months after the filing of all proceedings at the Court. However, the Court is not obliged to respect this time limit and, although it is unusual, it is not impossible that the judgment is rendered between six months and one year after the filing of the proceedings

 

To apply for a divorce in Quebec, you must have lived in Quebec for one year. The place of marriage does not matter.

There are three reasons for seeking a divorce in Canada: adultery, physical or mental cruelty, and living separate from each other for more than a year. It is only the separation of more than one year that makes it possible to present a joint petition for divorce. For your information, you can live separate from each other and cohabit under the same roof for economic reasons and usually for a temporary period. But you must live at different addresses at the time of the introduction of the proceedings.

 

To obtain your judgment of divorce, your original marriage certificate and, if applicable, your original marriage contract must be written in English or French or translated by an official translation service, or by an authorized translator in Quebec. If you are not in possession of these documents, we charge a fee of $ 50 (taxes included) for each of the documents missing.  Thus, you will have to pay 150.00 $, taxes and fees included, if you order us to order the original of your marriage certificate whereas you could do it yourself for a total sum of 31.75 $, if you order the document on Internet.

Rupture Québec does not offer representation services in the event of litigation, dispute, debate in the Court or contested procedures. Moreover, we do not deal with any emergency.
