Filing for Divorce in Manitoba

There are a number of laws that will affect your divorce proceedings and eventual permanent separation from your partner. These laws pertain to the procedures and legal requirements to obtain a divorce, laws affecting child custody and child support, and laws requiring the payment of alimony or spousal support.

Many federal laws, such as the legalization of same-sex marriage in 2005 and the Divorce Act of Canada, provide rights and regulations to all Canadians, but other laws, such as the Court of Queen’s Bench Rules, Manitoba Regulation 553/88 known as the Family Law Act of Manitoba, are provincial. This means it is imperative to your divorce proceedings that the lawyer you choose to engage is competent and familiar with all provincial laws.
