International Divorce in Costa Blanca

It is an international divorce when you apply for a divorce in a country other than your country of residence or permanent residence. This situation may occur because you live abroad for work, or because you and your ex end up living in different countries or because you have different nationalities.

If your situation involves two or more countries, you must:
1) Find out in which countries you can get a divorce, and
2) If you can choose from more than one country, find out which one will give you the best result.

The law on divorce varies greatly from country to country. So if you are thinking about getting a divorce abroad, it is very important that you get legal advice from a lawyer who is an expert in divorce law in that country.

You do not have to get a divorce in the country where you were married or living when you or your ex decided to end your marriage or civil union. In many countries, but not all, you can get a divorce in the country where either of you is now established, as long as you acknowledge that you were married in the first place. So many couples will find that they can divorce in more than one country.

You can only get a divorce in another country if:

1.- Your marriage is legally recognized in the country where you want to file for divorce.
2.- You can show that you or your ex has a connection to the country where you want to apply for a divorce.

To get a divorce in another country, you must show that you or your ex has a connection with it. A court only has the right and power to hear your case if it can prove this connection. The law calls this “jurisdiction. Different countries in the world have different rules for determining whether their courts have the legal power to try a case when other countries may be involved. Therefore, it is very important that you get legal advice from a lawyer who is experienced in divorce law in the country where you are thinking about getting a divorce.
