When it is possible to divorce through the civil registry office

In order for the spouses to be able to end the marriage without any problems through the registry office, two conditions must be met:

  1. They should not have joint children under the age of eighteen.
  2. Both spouses must agree to separate.

If at least one of these conditions is not met, the couple can only divorce through a court. Moreover, children must be exactly joint. If one of the divorcing children has a child from a previous marriage, not adopted by the second spouse, then this circumstance is not taken into account and you can safely go to the registry office.

The second important condition is the consent of both spouses. It is confirmed by filling out a joint application for divorce. If someone does not want to dissolve the marriage, then a controversial situation arises, which is resolved only through the courts.


In addition, it should be noted that there are situations when a divorce through the Civil Registry Office is possible without the consent of the second spouse and regardless of the presence of joint offspring. Such cases include:

  • recognition of the incapacity of one of the spouses;
  • death of a spouse;
  • recognition of the second spouse as missing;
  • a prison term of more than 3 years.

  • civil passports;
  • marriage certificate;
  • a divorce application to be completed by both spouses.

If one of the spouses cannot appear at the appointed time, then it is necessary for him to fill out his part of the application in advance. But in this case, the signature of the absent person is notarized.

After submitting all the documents, the civil registry office staff assigns the date of registration of the divorce. In most cases, no earlier than a month later. This is the so-called period for reconciliation, which is given to a couple by law. If the spouses never came to an understanding, they come on the appointed date and finally get divorced. Upon completion of all procedural manipulations, the ex-husband and wife are marked on the termination of the marriage in the passport and the corresponding certificates are issued.
