What if my spouse will not sign the joint divorce papers?

British Columbia Divorce > Joint Divorce in British Columbia
If your spouse will not sign the joint divorce papers, you can switch to a sole divorce. The procedure is different depending on what stage you are at.

If you have not yet filed the stage 1 forms, simply request a new set of sole divorce forms from us. We do not charge to switch from a joint divorce to a sole divorce as long as your subscription for updates is current. Every purchase includes a free 60 days update subscription.

If you have already filed stage 1 and your spouse is refusing to proceed with stage 2, the procedure is more complicated. Again, we do not charge to obtain a new set of sole divorce forms but because stage 1 was filed as a joint divorce you will have to file additional papers with the court. These additional papers are not included in our divorce package but can be purchased for a reasonable fee. If this situations occurs, please contact us for further information.
