How Do I Find Out if I'm Divorced?

From Clicklaw Wikibooks

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 will need to complete the form located on their website with the relevant details about you, your partner, and your relationship, and send it to:

Central Registry of Divorce Proceedings
Department of Justice Canada
284 Wellington Street
Ottawa, ON K1A 0H8

K1P 5W7

You can find out more about divorce in the chapter Separation & Divorce within the section Divorce.
