How to confirm a divorce in Ukraine
On the territory of Ukraine there is an electronic registry of acts of civil status of citizens who are registered by the RAGS. This is the main source of confirmation of the status of citizens in a marriage or divorce. If there is no entry in the registry, even if there are other supporting documents such as the Divorce Certificate or the Decision of the divorce court, you will not be able to confirm the marriage or divorce.

How to confirm a divorce issued abroad in Ukraine?

When divorcing citizens of Ukraine and foreign citizens abroad, to confirm the divorce in Ukraine, you must make an entry about the divorce in the registry of acts of civil status of Ukraine.
To do this, you must provide properly executed supporting documents for divorce from another country. This can be a divorce certificate or a court decision on divorce.
To recognize these documents in Ukraine, they must go through the recognition procedure and have a translation into the state language of Ukraine. Apostille or Legalization is usually necessary depending on the country of issue of the document, and the presence of international treaties between Ukraine and this country. The translation must be notarized.
After making an act of record in the registry of acts of civil status, you must take the extract from the registry, which will be a confirmation of the divorce. Such an extract and a duly executed divorce document from another country will be sufficient to confirm the divorce in any authorities in Ukraine.
