Getting a divorce in Ontario does not have to be expensive. At Simple Divorce we pride ourselves in being able to offer low cost solutions for divorces and other related services. We do not charge clients on an hourly basis for simple divorce matters. While contested divorce matters and negotiation of separation agreements are done on an hourly rate basis, we do offer block fees for specific stages of files for eligible clients. We understand that a divorce can be an emotional event and the last thing you should worry about are hidden costs and unexpected legal bills.
