Divorce lawyer

Divorce involves a complex process of severing a relationship that has been going on for a certain period of time. This process resembles the difficult unraveling of threads that were once tightly woven together. The divorce process must take into account a delicate balance of emotions, on the one hand, and financial and legal aspects, on the other. In Ukraine, the process of divorce or dissolution of marriage also has significant legal and material consequences that go beyond the emotional sphere.

Divorce in Ukraine is more than just the termination of a marriage. It involves determining the rights and obligations of each partner, especially in relation to:

Property division: Joint property or assets accumulated during a marriage are often a significant point of contention. An inheritance lawyer helps spouses navigate the complex legal landscape to ensure a fair division of property, taking into account the legal framework of Ukraine and the unique circumstances of the couple.

Determining the child’s place of residence: The emotional well-being of children becomes paramount during a divorce. The decision on the child’s place of residence depends on many factors, which are best addressed with legal expertise to ensure the child’s best interests.

Determining the amount of alimony: Determining the proper amount of child support requires a clear understanding of both parties’ financial situation and the legal regulations of the country. An experienced lawyer will ensure that these determinations are fair and legally sound.

Divorce in court

When spouses have disagreements about divorce or have minor children, the Ukrainian legal system provides for divorce only through the courts. However, some clarifications are necessary:

Disagreement over divorce: The refusal of one of the spouses to agree to a divorce is not an obstacle to its implementation. It is important to understand that keeping a marriage against one’s will is considered coercion, which is not approved by the Ukrainian legal system.

Reconciliation period: The court may grant a period of time for reconciliation. At its discretion or at the suggestion of a lawyer, this period may be from one month to six months.

Participation of a lawyer in divorce proceedings

Statement of claim:

The cornerstone of the divorce proceedings is the statement of claim. The time it takes to resolve the issue and the success of your case as a whole depend on how well this document is drafted and executed.

Our lawyers will make sure that your statement contains convincing arguments, especially if the division of property or the welfare of children is at stake. In some cases, a lawyer may provide additional documents or submit applications to speed up the divorce process, but the expediency of such actions can only be decided by a lawyer after consulting with the client and entering into the case as a representative.

A notarised agreement:

If both spouses agree with the decision to divorce, our family lawyers will help you draw up a comprehensive notarised agreement. This document will set out parental roles after the divorce, details of alimony payments and the methodology for collecting them.

Divorce, especially through the courts, is undoubtedly a complicated process. But with the right legal partner, you can navigate this difficult path with confidence and clarity!

Divorce through the consulate of Ukraine:

The consul has the authority to dissolve a marriage under certain conditions:

  • Mutual consent of spouses who do not have minor children together.
  • If one of the partners is declared missing.
  • If one of the spouses is declared incapacitated by a court decision.

Understanding the process of divorce from a foreigner

Divorce from a foreigner in Ukraine is in many ways similar to the procedure for divorce between two Ukrainian citizens. But, first of all, there are certain nuances:

Determining the defendant’s place of residence: Accurately determining and verifying a foreigner’s place of residence can be difficult. After filing a statement of claim, the court will verify the validity of the defendant’s registration at the specified address. If the information provided is not true, the court will issue a ruling to dismiss the case and the plaintiff will be asked to file a lawsuit under the jurisdiction of the court. Thus, you will spend extra time, nerves and money.

We will come to your aid with any questions you may have:

Knowledge of international law: divorce from a foreigner often involves a combination of Ukrainian and international legal norms. Our lawyers’ experience in both areas ensures that your rights are uncompromised.

Property disputes: Cross-border assets and property rights can be contentious. The experience of our team guarantees a fair distribution of property, taking into account Ukrainian and international property law.

Fighting for child custody: When it comes to children, the stakes are higher. Our lawyers fight hard to ensure your child’s welfare and protect your parental rights.
