When a Couple Separates.

Dissolution of a Civil Union

Ministère de la Justice

If your civil union has broken down, it can be dissolved, ending the legal obligations and rights of the spouses. If you lived with your former spouse in a civil union and have no children, and if you both agree on all aspects of your separation, you may dissolve your union by a joint statement made before a notary.

If you have children and have already agreed on all aspects of your separation, you can present a joint application on a draft agreement before the court; if you do not agree, one spouse may present a separate application.
