For a joint or amicable divorce, both parties must agree and participate together in all stages of the process. To do your proceedings in Quebec, one of the parties must have resided in Quebec during the last twelve months. To request an amicable divorce, with some exceptions, you must be living apart from each other for over a year.

Documents required for a divorce, to proceed with your file, you will need a photocopy of the birth certificates of both parties (spouse) and those of your children in common (when applicable). Your marriage certificate. When you are married in Quebec, your marriage certificate must come from the Direction de l'état civil. It's blue and looks like a birth certificate. This is not your marriage declaration. If you don't have it or have never had it, you must order it. Everyone must provide these documents without exception. If you are married in another country, you must provide the original marriage certificate.

 

Similarly, you will need a copy of your marriage contract, your contract excluding the application of family patrimony and the original of your legal separation judgment, only if one or other of these last three documents is applicable to your situation. Thus, if you have not made a marriage contract with a notary or a legal separation judgment, you do not have to worry about these documents.

Documents must be written in French or English. Otherwise, they must be accompanied by the original of an official translation prepared by a translator from the Order of Translators of Quebec.

Finally, if you have at least one dependent child, each of the two parties must, obligatorily for all, have in their possession their last Quebec notice of assessment, the four pages of their last Quebec tax return as well as their last three pay stubs. These are three different sets of documents.

For a divorce in person, as part of the all-inclusive package with lawyer, you will need to book an appointment where both parties will have to attend a single meeting for one to two hours, where your information and documents will be reviewed, then your procedures will be prepared, signed and sworned. Then I take care of your entire case to get your judgment and you won't have to do anything else.

 

For a divorce by videoconference, you will need to book an appointment for the videoconference. Then, you will have to complete a questionnaire concerning the relevant information in your file (one questionnaire for both parties). Then, you will have to pay a deposit to cover the costs and fees for your file. The payment of the fees must be made when you complete the questionnaire or at least 72 hours before the videoconference. Finally, you must send us a photocopy of all the documents required for your file, at least 72 hours before the videoconference. You will receive a reminder email to this effect which will indicate the required documents.

 

You and the other party will need to attend a single videoconference meeting for one to two hours, where the documents will be prepared, printed, signed and sworned. Consequently, you must have a printer. You will then have to send me all the documents by mail to my office. If you are not at the same physical location at the time of the videoconference, since you must sign the same documents there will have to be an additional meeting and the total cost will be $ 100 extra. 

The all-inclusive rate indicated is available when you qualify for subsidized mediation. To be eligible for subsidized mediation when you have no dependent children, you must never have benefited from subsidized mediation together. To be eligible for subsidized mediation when you have at least one dependent child, you must not have benefited from subsidized mediation in the last twelve months.

 

Thus, if you do not have dependent children and are not eligible for subsidized mediation, the total cost will be for an additional amount of $ 300. Similarly, if you have at least one dependent child and are not eligible for subsidized mediation the total cost will be for an additional amount of $ 375. 

For a do-it-yourself package, you will have to answer a questionnaire concerning the information relevant to your file. In addition, you will have to pay a deposit depending on the package chosen and you will be able to do so at the end of the questionnaire.

Within two working days following receipt of the completed questionnaire and the deposit, you will receive all the documents necessary for your file in PDF by email, as well as detailed instructions for proceeding yourself to obtain your judgment. It may occasionally happen that the deadline for producing documents exceeds two days during very busy periods.

 

This package does not include any consultation, conversation or exchange to answer your questions. This service is appropriate only if you already have an agreement between you regarding your entire file. My work is only a work of drafting and preparing documents. In addition, you will have to pay the court stamp fee in the amount of $ 122 at the courthouse when you file your application.

 

If you make a mistake while answering the questionnaire, you will be responsible for the result. There will be no cross-checking of your information and if you reverse your first and last name or omit accents, it will be your responsibility. A fee of $ 50 will be charged to correct an error for which you are responsible.

 

If ever an error on my part slips into the documents, I will correct it free of charge. In any case, you understand that my responsibility is limited to correcting the error.

 

By retaining my services with the do it yourself by email package, you have clearly waived any consultation regarding your file. You acknowledge that you have never received and will never receive any legal opinion regarding your documents from me. You declare that you are fully aware of your rights and obligations and therefore waive the right to receive a legal opinion concerning your case.
