religious divorce lawyer canada

Just as marriage in Canada often follows a dual track system of civil confirmation of marriage, and religious solemnization of marriage, so can divorce. While religious divorce is less common within some Canadian religious traditions, certain elements of some religions may require religious as well as civil divorce in order to dissolve one marriage and pave the way for remarriage. 

We recognize the complexities of different religious traditions in Canada from a family law perspective, and that civil divorce may be only half of what is needed to complete the family change process. We'll work with Imams, Rabbis and other religious officials to coordinate civil divorce proceedings with religious divorce proceedings so that finality in the family law process under both civil law and religious law is achieved.
