What determines the procedure for divorce

The order of divorce is affected by several factors that fundamentally change the case:
  • 1 Presence of joint children under the age of 18.
  • 2 Pregnancy of the spouse.
  • 3 Consent of spouses for divorce.
The easiest and quickest way to get a divorce is to file an application with the Department of Registration of Civil Status Acts. But this requires that the couple did not have children and both spouses were not against the dissolution of marriage. In addition, the wife should not be pregnant during this period. Otherwise, a divorce is possible only through a court. Material disputes do not affect the possibility of divorce. Usually they are resolved in another trial.

The order of divorce through the Department of Registration of Civil Status Acts

The process of dissolution of marital relations in the Department of Registration of Civil Status Acts has the following form:
  • 1 Spouses go to the Department of Registration of Civil Status Acts at the place of registration of one of them and submit a statement together to terminate the marriage. Everyone fills his part and puts a signature. A sample application can be obtained from the institution or downloaded from the official website.
  • 2 Passports and marriage certificate will also be required.
  • 3 After this, the date the spouses are to come to terminate the marriage is appointed. Usually, not earlier than in 30 days.
  • 4 At the appointed time, the couple comes to finalize the divorce. The former spouses are given a certificate of divorce and a stamp is placed in the passport.
At any time before the final registration, the spouses can withdraw their application. That is why the law gives a month of waiting, the so-called period for reconciliation. If a couple does not get to report to the registration authority on the right day, then it is necessary to write a statement about the transfer of the date. By law, you can stop the marriage within one year from the date of filing the application.
