Separation & Divorce

What is the Difference Between Separation and Divorce in Ontario?

Separation and Divorce are related, but distinct steps in ending a relationship.

All couples — whether they are married or living together in a “common law” relationship — can “separate” from each other, but only married people can get a divorce.
