Can I undo my divorce?

November 28, 2019

The short answer is no. Under Canadian law, a divorce order – which in this context is taken to mean the order that legally dissolves your marriage – is just like any other order of the court.  Assuming that the proper court procedures have been followed, the court’s judgment results in a final order. That final order is then confirmed by way of a divorce decree that is issued by a judge.

In some respects, a divorce order is actually even more “final” than other types of orders, because the right of appeal has been removed through legislation: Under section 21(2) of the Divorce Act, you are expressly prohibited from launching an appeal of the judgment that grants your divorce on or after the date your divorce takes effect.
