Divorce without presence
divorce without presence
It’s possible to divorce without a presence in Ukraine, but you need to take into account the specifics of the event.

Where divorce occurs

Depending on the accompanying circumstances and situation, the divorce will occur in one of the following authorized bodies:
  • RACS;
  • Court.
In the RACS (registry office), divorce is possible only if there were no children from the marriage. Both spouses must also agree to a divorce.
In other cases - there are children or one of the couple does not agree to divorce, divorce is possible only through court.

Divorce without the presence of the court

Divorce in court without presence is possible, but since this is an important lawsuit during which it is possible to consider other related issues, it is still necessary to carefully consider and control it. In order not to get unexpected results in the court decision, you can control the process in person or with the help of a representative.

Divorce without presence in the RACS

Completely divorcing without a presence in the RACS will not work.
The divorce in the RACS consists of two stages - the submission of the application and then after a while the direct divorce itself.
For a divorce, the RACS must submit an application for divorce to the RACS. This statement is in two parts. Each of the spouses fills its half. The application is submitted jointly by the spouses; the filing will require the personal presence of both spouses.
In some cases, one of the spouses may apply. By agreement with the RACS, one of the spouses can fill out their half of the application in advance, and assure their signature with a notary. Then the second spouse will fill out the second half in the RACS and submit an application. But in the future, this will not free both spouses from the need for personal presence on the divorce.
After submitting an application to the RACS, the date of divorce is assigned (on average one month later). In order for the divorce to take place, both spouses must come at the appointed date and time, and confirm the intention to divorce. Without confirmation, a divorce will not take place. It will be necessary to attend the termination in person.
Summing up, we can conclude that divorce in the RACS is completely impossible without presence. In practice, spouses will be required to be present at the application or at termination.
If you still intend to divorce without a presence, then divorce in court can help you.
