Divorce for residents of Donbass
How to get a divorce in Donetsk region? Donetsk actually now consists of two parts - Ukrainian territories and uncontrolled territories. The resolution of the dissolution of marriage in each part of the Donetsk region is different.

Divorce in Donetsk region, Ukraine

For residents of the Ukrainian territories of the Donetsk region, nothing has changed in the process of divorce. Divorce occurs in a general manner.
You can read more about divorce in Ukraine in one of our articles, for example "Dissolution of marriage or divorce" .

Divorce in the Donetsk region, uncontrolled territories

For residents of territories of the Donetsk region not controlled by Ukraine, divorce is complicated by the fact that state bodies of Ukraine such as registry offices and courts do not work at their location. But, each state body (registry office, court and others) that temporarily stopped working in the uncontrolled part of the Donetsk region transferred its functions to another state institution in Ukraine. To dissolve the marriage, it will be necessary to go to the territory of Ukraine and contact the appropriate state body.

Divorce in the registry office for residents of the uncontrolled part of Donetsk region and internally displaced persons

Divorce in the registry office is the easiest and fastest way, but the condition is mutual consent of the parties and the absence of joint minor children from marriage.
Divorce in the registry office for residents of uncontrolled territories of the Donetsk region is impossible. Citizens with registration of residence in the uncontrolled territories of the Donetsk region to divorce must apply to the Court.
Internally displaced persons can apply to the registry office at the place of registration as temporarily displaced persons. Read more about the divorce in the registry office here - "Divorce without children".

Divorce in the Court for residents of the uncontrolled part of the Donetsk region and Internally displaced persons.

In order to dissolve a marriage through the court, it is necessary to apply to the court at the place of registration of the defendant.
If the defendant is registered in the uncontrolled territory of the Donetsk region, then due to the fact that local courts are temporarily not working, in this case you need to go to a court that replaces a non-working court in Ukraine.
For temporarily idle Courts in the uncontrolled territory of Donetsk region, the High Specialized Court of Ukraine has established a list of replacement Courts in Ukraine:

HSCU decision
HSCU decision
HSCU decision
HSCU decision

After the Court to which it is necessary to apply is established, it is necessary to pay the court fee to the account of this court at the Treasury and file a claim with the general registry of the court.
Further, the procedure for divorce does not differ from the usual. It is necessary to wait for the appointment of the first court hearing, to obtain a court decision.
