Dear Madam/Sir, We got married in Seychelles in the past. The act is not legalized in Europe, where we are from. We have decided for a divorce and I am wondering what is the best and simplest way (cost effective as well) for us ?
Thank you for your advice. Petra
Thanks so much for searching. as it is important and also quite urgent to get the proper answer,
I trust you and gladly wait for the right person to answer as soon as it is possible.
Thank you for helping me.
I come from Slovakia, my husband is Polish.
We got married in Seychelles, and as I currently reside in Dubai, marriage was legalized only in UAE, not in EU though.
He (his parents) is living in Germany since childhood, but he is sort of without residency. still migrating all over the world, freelance. he kept his polish citizenship though.
Clare, most important for us was the fact that we do not want it to be legal in EU at all thats why we got mrried in SEZ (also we d not have divorce by agreement there). my question was meant to be about divorce in seychelles and the simplest way how to proceed there, how does it work etc. afterwards i would legalize it in UAE and in Europe we still stay "single", if this is ever possible.
Thank you for your kind answer, which will help a lot.
Dear Clare, is there please someone who can answer my questions stated in the beginning of the conversation? What is the (best) procedure with regards ***** ***** in SEZ? we do not mind to fly over.
what does it mean "habitually" resident? when we got married there, there was no problem for the ceremonieur to "make us" residents fr the purpose of marriage. is it possible also in the case of divorce?
If yes, my other questions were: How does it work ? Do we have to go to the court ? Can it be done remotely ? Do we have to be present both ? How much it would be ? How long does it take ?
Do they in fact have divorce by agreement? do we need a lawyer there?
Thank you Clare.
Just to complete all options, how about divorce in UAE ? what is the procedure here? would that require registration in home country or embassy anyway? (Was not necessary for marriage).
Which country out of all has an institute of divorce by agreement please?
thanks for all your answers, even though i did not get the solution which would be acceptable for me now. Main thing was that we were/are avoiding any official acts in EU in general, mainly in Germany. So it is not an easiest option for us as it is least wanted. Therefore I was wondering about divorce in SEZ (original place of marriage) respectively in UAE (I am 6y resident here, for approx one month more only though). If there is someone who can help me with answers with regards ***** ***** you don't have a knowledge of the system, I would be happy. Thank you.
Thank you Clare,
at least I know, that this is the way to go.
