    Obviously, bringing the legal relationship of marriage to an end is the chief function of the divorce proceeding. As well, the Divorce Act allows the court to deal with issues of spousal support, child support, or custody and access.

    The division of property or other property issues cannot be dealt with under the Divorce Act. These must be dealt with under the legislation of the province or territory in which you live. In Ontario these are dealt with by the Family Law Act.
