How Do I Find Out if I'm Divorced?
If your or your spouse has started a divorce action and you want to know whether or not your divorce order has gone through, just call the family registry of the courthouse that the action was started in. Ask them if your order has been approved yet, and, if not, when you can expect it to be approved.
If you and your spouse have been separated for a long time, and you want to find out whether your spouse ever applied for a divorce, contact the Central Registry of Divorce Proceedings in Ottawa, Ontario. They're the folks who keep track of all Canadian divorce actions. You can send them a letter at:
