Divorce After PR. Landed together not sponsored.

  1. Hi All

    We landed together in Toronto on Nov 2018. My wife was the primary applicant in the application. We were married for more than 2 years in India before filling the PR. After 2 months in Toronto, we understood that the relationship is not working out and we started staying separately in Toronto to avoid further any conflict.

    Now the question in my mind is.

    1. Do I need to file a divorce in India or in Ontario?
    2. As we are not even a year in Canada, will this decision impact our PR status in Canada?
  2. Hi

    1. Canada, as it is where your connection is. Note you have to be separated for 1 year for a "no fault" divorces.
    2. Has no impact on you PR status.
  3. Ok, so my Canadian divorce will be accepted in India? or I will also have to file in India as my marriage certificate was issued in India.
