The current situation in our country has forced many residents to leave their homes in the Crimea, Donetsk and Luhansk regions because of their occupation. Forced relocation raises a large number of issues, including family law. Divorce in these cases is not the last place. It is important to understand that moving around the country does not take away from people their legal status as a citizen of Ukraine, that is, the divorce will take place according to the same procedures.
Features of divorce for immigrants
The divorce procedure itself for people who are registered in the so-called DPR, LPR and AR Crimea is fully regulated by Ukrainian legislation. That is why such persons can conduct their state registration not at the place of registration, but at the place of residence. But before you file a lawsuit or go to the registry office, you need to get a special certificate that you were registered as an internally displaced person. This certificate is then attached to the divorce claim.
After the moment described above, the procedure for breaking the marriage bond occurs according to the standard scenario. The terms of divorce also remain the same, both in the case of divorce through the court, and in the case of filing an application with the civil registry office. In other words, the main feature is the ability to submit documents at the location. If a married couple by mutual consent terminates the marriage, and they do not have minor children, they go to the registry office, if there are children, and then the divorce occurs only in court.
