Divorce while one party is outside Germany

2 posts in this topic

My wife and I are both non-German nationals who got married in Denmark.  I have moved back home about two years ago (outside EU) while my wife still lives in Germany.  We would like to get divorced and based on what I read it seems easiest to do it in Germany, and for the person outside (me) to initiate the process.  I'm a bit confused about how to do that though, will it be possible to carry out the whole divorce process remotely?  I can't really feasibly come to Germany right now.  Thanks in advance for any help!

If your wife in in Germany and you have been living outside of Germany for two years, I think she would need to file because she fits the residency requirements. Not sure, though. I’d ask a German lawyer that specializes in family law. There is a divorce link on Toytown somewhere, just search. 

 

Are you sure it’s easier in Germany?
