What are the procedures to get divorced?

Divorce Procedures

Divorce, like marriage, is a legal action and must be approved by a court of law.

Divorce law varies from country to country, so it is important to contact local authorities for precise information on how to obtain a divorce. In most laws, couples who wish to divorce must undergo a separation period and provide reasons that the divorce should be granted, although the most commonly used reason is 'irreconcilable differences.'

Canada 's constitution states that divorce is the realm of the federal government. After gay marriage was introduced in Canada the divorce law posed a problem, being designed for opposite-sex couples. In 2005 a judge found that the divorce law was discriminatory and allowed gay marriage divorce.
