If you were divorced outside Canada and wish to get remarried in Ontario, when you apply for an Ontario marriage licence you need to provide a legal opinion from an Ontario lawyer, addressed to both applicants for the marriage licence, giving reasons why the divorce should be recognized in the Province of Ontario.  You will also need the original or court-certified copy of the final decree, final judgment or certificate of divorce.   (If the decree is in a language other than English or French, you will also need a translated copy together with an affidavit sworn by the translator.)  I will only be able to provide such an opinion letter if one of the parties to the divorce resided in the jurisdiction granting the divorce for at least one year immediately preceding the application for divorce.

Before attending at my office to obtain an opinion letter, you should obtain and complete and bring with you:

You should also bring with you two pieces of personal identification.
