If you want to speed up the process to end the relationship with your soon-to-be ex-spouse, there’s an app for that.
The province has launched the Online Divorce Assistant Application (ODAA) to help people complete documentation for joint-filing divorces in cases without children in the supreme court.
The Attorney General’s office says the new online tool will speed up the process time and eliminate filing errors for better service access.
It is designed for tablet-sized or larger devices, although the application can be used on any smartphone or computer.
Joint-filed divorces happen when both applicants agree to their particular family law issues, such as spousal support and dividing property and debts.
The province says there are about 10,000 divorces filed each year and 30 per cent of those are filed jointly.
The ODAA takes between 15 to 30 minutes to complete and applicants can print the finished documents to take to a court registry for filing.
The province plans to expand the application in the coming months to include joint-filing cases that involve children.
