Hi, and welcome to Hart Legal Talks. My name is Nick Jacob, and I’d like to speak with you today about an Uncontested Divorce. So when people get into an Uncontested Divorce, what they typically mean is that the parties agree to get divorced, and that no one has to go to court. There are some things that need to be in place for an uncontested divorce to occur, and those are that one of the parties has to have lived in British Columbia for at least one year, the parties will have to have lived separate and apart for at least one year by the time the divorce is to take place, and they must have agreements on child support, spousal support, parenting, and any property division issues.
If you plan to see a lawyer about this, its helpful to bring some documents along. So if you make an appointment with a lawyer, you should bring your original marriage certificate, a photograph of your spouse, and any court orders or written separation agreements that you may have.
If you have any further questions or you are interested in getting an uncontested divorce, please feel free to contact me with the information provided.
Again, its Nick Jacob at Hart Legal, and thanks very much.
