Citizens of Ukraine have full freedom in matters of marriage. There are no restrictions to formalize a legal relationship with a foreigner. In our time, families, where the husband or wife are not Ukrainian citizens, are no longer uncommon, as is the fact that any relationship can start a crack. In this case, the question of divorce and its features becomes acute, which you need to be aware of.
The fact is that family relations with a foreigner can be regulated both by Ukrainian legislation and international agreements in which our country participates. Unfortunately, even if a foreign spouse gives their consent to a divorce, not every country can accept documents issued by the Ukrainian Civil Registry Office. That is why the best option is to go to court. All you need to do is prepare documents, submit an application to the court and do it at the registered address of the foreign spouse, if you know it.
Divorce from a foreigner is a procedure that follows the same scenario as the divorce of Ukrainian citizens. The most difficult thing is to find out where your spouse is registered to submit an application at their place of residence. But it is necessary to pay attention to the divorce procedure, which is used in his country. The easiest way is to contact professional lawyers who know their business well and are ready to help you overcome all difficulties. Kasyanenko & Partners Law Company specialists have been engaged in divorce proceedings for many years and know how to make sure that you get the most acceptable result.
Divorce can also be processed without the participation of a foreign spouse. Termination occurs in court in absentia if it was possible to notify the defendant of the upcoming meeting. That is, there are no barriers to divorce in Ukraine when the spouse is outside of it.
