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 lawyer-operated 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 over 16 years and has personally prepared, filed, managed and obtained over 6,000 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 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 fill out all of the required forms yourself – and properly! According to the E-filing manager at the court in Toronto, the vast majority of non-lawyer E-filed divorces must be re-filed on paper at the court due to mistakes the user made (you cannot fix E-filing mistakes online). So, in the end, self E-filing can be more frustrating and take longer than having a lawyer E-file for you.
