Guided Pathways to Divorce Forms

Guided Pathways to Divorce Forms

CLEO’s Family Law Guided Pathways are designed to help you fill out the court forms you need for your family law matter.

You can use this pathway if:

  • You’re applying for a divorce by yourself, and are asking the court for a divorce only. This means that you can’t use the pathways if you’re asking for orders about spousal support, child support, custody and access, or a division of property.
  • You’re applying for a divorce with your spouse. You can also ask the court to make orders about spousal support, child support, and custody and access, if you and your spouse agree on these issues.

The pathways ask you questions and then put your answers into the required forms. The pathways are free to use.

When you’re finished, you can save or print off your forms. You will also get instructions about how to give these forms to the court.

You can use it if … What do you need?
  • you’re married
  • you or your spouse have lived in Ontario for the last year
  • you’ve been separated for at least one year
  • you and your spouse have a court order about child support or reasonable arrangements have been made for the support of the children
  • you want to apply for a divorce on your own (simple divorce) or together with your spouse (joint divorce)
  • a certified copy of your marriage certificate
  • copies of agreements, court orders, Notice of Calculation, and Notices of Recalculation
  • your date of marriage and dates that you lived together
  • birth dates, names and previous divorce information for you and your spouse
  • information about any children you and your spouse have

It can take as little as 15 minutes to complete the pathways for a simple divorce, if you have all the information you need to answer the questions.  It will take longer in more complicated situations.

You can sign up to create an account or use the pathways as a guest. If you choose not to create an account, the system will time out after 4 hours. You must create an account if you want to save your work on the system or use the pathways for orders about spousal support, child support, or custody and access. 

Any personal information that you enter into the pathways is confidential. CLEO will not give your personal information to anyone unless you ask us to do this. Read more in the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

This guided pathway does not give you legal advice. For advice about your situation, talk to a lawyer.
