This page is being updated. Meanwhile, as the information currently online may not be complete, we invite you to consult the French version. Thank you for your understanding.

If you have decided to separate, you can take advantage of the Family Mediation Program if you have at least one dependent child, whether or not you are married. You must first attend an information session on the legal and psychological aspects of separation.

Afterwards, you can get help from a mediator to reach an out-of-court settlement on child custody, support payments and the division of property acquired during your union. You can then present your agreement to a specially designated clerk so that it can be given legal status.
