Tax Implications

While married couples must be separated for at least one year prior to qualifying for a divorce certificate, the Canada Revenue Agency ("CRA") has a distinct definition of "separation".  The CRA considers married and common law spouses to be separated when they live in separate geographic locations and are apart for 90 days or more.  This has implications for Child and Family Benefits.  Please consult with your accountant or directly with the CRA.
