Can I get a Common Law Divorce?

No. There is no such thing as a common law divorce. If a man and a woman:

  1. Stop living together; and
  2. The common law marriage has not proved to have existed in a legal proceeding within 2 years after the man and woman have stopped living together, it will be presumed that the couple was never married. This rule does not apply to a common law marriage that arose from signing a Declaration of Marriage.
