If you got divorced outside of Canada, that divorce is not automatically recognized in Canada if you wish to remarry. A Foreign divorce letter from a Canadian lawyer is necessary to satisfy the Government of Canada that your foreign divorce would be recognized here.
A foreign divorce letter must be completed by an Ontario lawyer. This letter opines whether or not your foreign divorce would be recognized in Canada, pursuant to the law and your particular circumstance.
Typically, one of two conditions must be met in order for your international divorce to be recognized in Canada:
When you obtained your divorce, you had a “real and substantial” connection to the place you obtained the divorce; or
When you obtained your divorce, either you or your spouse were ordinarily resident in the place your divorce was granted.
