I was just wondering if anyone here did all the paper work for their divorce. Especially anyone Canadian.
I know divorce laws are different everywhere but I am curious if anyone has any experience with them in general?
we do not co-own any property, vehicles, basically have no assets, and also do not co-own any debts (each have separate student loans
) , we have no kids, so there is no real need for lawyers. We have already agreed to who gets what, and who is staying in our current rental aprtment. I get the cats and to find a new home!
it is WAY cheaper to get the forms and the guide and do it yourself (looks like $400 canadian for all the court fees). I have found some great BC law sites that tell me step by step what to do in order to preocess all the forms with the court and get my divorce...but it is still a little bit overwhelming. It is just intimidating! I also found a BC place (legit) that you send all your info to, they fill out your paperwork via contact with you, they send it to you, and tell you when to submit what to the courts. The fee is only $225 for that service. And if anything goes wrong to do with the paperwork they fix it and cover the costs. So I guess that is another option. They assist you 24/7 with whatever help you need.
here in BC we have to have been legally separated for one year before a judge will grant a divorce otherwise we would have already dealt with this.
I go through days where I feel fine and everything is ok, I am not just pretending, and then I have periods of being a mess! Crying all the time, not sleeping, stressed, not eating. I keep getting sick. No wonder!! I do not miss my husband in particular, I definitely do not want him back! I guess I am still adjusting to a single life again. It is very odd and is taking a lot to get used to.
Never in a million years did I think that my life could seem to go so wrong.
But I guess I can be grateful that we are on good terms. Well maybe he should be grateful I am still civil after he fell in love with someone else
How nice I am!
But spring 2006 will be better! We will get the divorced finalized, me and the kitties will have our own new life. I may actually move to a new city to be with one of my best friends, I will get a full time job (currently very very part time) and life will improve!! And me and the kitties will go back to my maiden name as well, so new last names for us!
