Divorce

Postby wizzardsway » Fri Mar 28, 2014 4:03 pm

I am in the middle of obtaining a quick divorce after 10 years marriage to a Peruvian women. Question is? Does anyone know where to get a divorce, does it have to be in the place you were marries or can I file for instance in Pimentel where I currently live or in the place I was married like in Jesus Maria. I cant seem to find an answer and my attorney is no help, if that is what he is called. Thanks

It probably seems a lot easier said than done.

Dear Expat,

You have 3 options for a divorce:

- at the nearest municipality;
- at your convenient notary public' office; or,
- at the Peruvian Judiciary (currently on strike. latest strike lasted 5weeks).

If you have no children and no assets in common, it is much easier.

The last family domicile determines jurisdiction regardless where you married.

Good luck!

As far as I understand it due to my current predicament, the first two options listed above only apply if you and your partner are both in agreement and have agreed terms i.e who gets what. If there is a dispute, you face a long, expensive fight through the judiciary system. It could take years and get messy...

That is true, the first two options are for couples who agree.

The judiciary is sadly the punishment to those who do not.

YOu might want to consider leaving Peru to get a divorce. Different places have different rules. Look at Nevada and Guam for quick divorces.
