Toronto Divorce Lawyer Vows to Help Foreign Divorcees Get Recognised

November 20 21:02 2022

For anyone who has divorced in a foreign country, they need to get an opinion letter from a local family lawyer to acknowledge the legality of this divorce. This is for foreign divorcees who wish to remarry within Canada. A local divorce lawyer from Divorce Go has vowed to help all immigrants in this tight spot get a certified foreign divorce opinion letter in the country. 

In a recent interview, the lawyer said, “A foreign divorce opinion letter is a critical document for anyone seeking the green light from the Canadian government to remarry. The opinion letter helps ascertain that the divorce is accepted under the Canadian Federal Divorce Act.” The lawyer clarified that it would be impossible for anyone with foreign divorce papers to get these documents recognised locally without this critical document. 

One will need to plan and get this document from a certified firm before initiating plans to get married in the country. The lawyer also added in another comment, “The legality of divorce for anyone who divorced in another country can be recognised under two conditions. One, if a person had a true and significant connection to the country where they got that divorce. Two, if a person or their partner at the time had to be residents of the country that issued the divorce for at least one year before the divorce.” 

The chances of getting recognised are pretty good if one had a normal residency in the country that issued the divorce.

If a divorce was made locally and one needs to remarry, all they need is a court-certified copy of the divorce certificate if they don’t have the original copy. If the divorce was filed in another country, they would need several other documents, including the opinion letter.  

The Law Firm has outlined on its website,, the process of getting a foreign divorce opinion letter through its licensed and experienced family lawyers. Typically, the process takes a few weeks to a month. The Law Firm, through their lead lawyer, insisted that one must get this letter drafted early enough before making any arrangements to remarry.  

The lawyer also added that the firm offers free consultations to all their clients in a special sitting. The client will meet with an experienced family lawyer who is allowed to answer all their questions.
