What do I need to get divorced? What documents do I need?


Unfortunately you didn't give enough information. I can suppose that you and your husband are citizens of the Russian Federation. I case it is not so, divorce procedure is the same but there are a few details that should be take into account in executing documents. According to the Family Code of the Russian Federation in case both spouses agree to divorce and they do not have minor children, the marriage is terminated by a civil records authority. A marriage can be terminated by a civil records authority upon application of one of the spouses irrespective of whether they have minor children or not in case the court declares the other spouse missing or legally incapable, the other spouse is sentenced for a period exceeding three years. A marriage is terminated and a divorce certificate is issued by a civil records authority upon expiration of one month from the date of divorce application.

A marriage shall be terminated by court decision in case the spouses have minor children or one of the spouses is against the divorce or in case one of the spouses avoids termination of the marriage by a civil records authority though he/she doesn't have any objections to termination of the marriage. A marriage is terminated in case the court comes to a conclusion that family life of spouses can not be retained. In case one of the spouses is against divorce the court is entitled to establish a reconciliation term not exceeding 3 months.

In case such reconciliation measures do not bring any result and the spouses (one of them) insist on divorce the marriage is considered dissolved. In case both spouses agree to divorce by judicial means, the court shall terminate the marriage without identification of reasons for the divorce. A marriage shall be terminated upon expiration of one month from the date of divorce application filed by the spouses. In order to divorce you should present your passports and your marriage certificate. Other documents may be required depending on a situation.
