ezDivorce.ca was founded in 2003 by Adam Slater, Barrister & Solicitor. Adam has been a lawyer since 1995 (in Ontario since 1999). Based in Toronto, Ontario, ezDivorce.ca is the original, Ontario online divorce service that provides low cost, high quality assistance with ‘simple’, uncontested or joint divorces in Ontario, Canada.
Why choose us?
Adam has been doing simple, uncontested divorces for 20 years and has personally prepared, filed, managed and obtained nearly 10,000 divorces in Ontario in that time. No other lawyer comes even remotely close.
Note: Only lawyers licensed in Ontario are permitted to offer Ontario divorce services. When researching which service to use, ask for the name of the lawyer that runs the service. If it is not run by an Ontario lawyer it is illegal and you will not be protected by the Law Society if something goes wrong. Just because a service has a slick website does not make it legitimate. Also, checking out the Better Business Bureau is also a very good idea – however, note that BBB ratings do not necessarily take into account whether or not a service runs afoul of local laws.
NOTE: ezDivorce.ca is not an automated form generation service. Adam personally prepares all of the required Ontario divorce forms based on the information you provide on our intake form. So if you make a mistake, Adam will follow up with you. Cheaper sites just drop whatever information you enter into robo-generated forms. They do not make sure that everything is presented in the way courts require.
E-Filing: Have you heard of the new(ish) E-filing service? It is not as straightforward as it sounds. You must still select and fill out all of the required forms yourself – and properly! Do you know if the court where you are filing the divorce requires one or two affidavits in a joint divorce? Do they accept non-Registrar General-issued marriage certificates? Are there any other unpublished ‘local rules’ that you must follow? The majority of non-lawyer E-filed divorces must resubmitted due to mistakes the users made. So, in the end, self E-filing can be more frustrating and take longer than having a lawyer E-file for you.
