Unilateral divorce procedure
Have you ever thought about divorce? Probably, there is no such married couple who, during a quarrel, did not say: “That’s all, we need to get a divorce!”. However, such spontaneous statements are nothing more than words.
But situations often happen when a couple realizes that there is no point in continuing family life, they no longer complement each other, do not feel the support that was at the beginning of their relationship, there is no love from which it all began. Now there are only constant quarrels, misunderstandings between spouses, reproaches and a desire to end everything. In this case, there is only one way left – to start the divorce proceedings.
In Ukraine, there are legislative mechanisms that provide various ways of divorce. Peaceful, that is, by the general agreement of both parties, and unilaterally, when one of the spouses objects or does not appear at the meeting at all, that is, does not participate in the process.
In the following sections, we will talk about the second cases, because they cause the greatest concern for our clients.

The main thing that you must remember and what our lawyers note in the first place is that marriage is the voluntary consent of a man and a woman. The link “and” means that there must be agreement of both participants in the marriage relationship at the same time. So when one of them decides to start the divorce proceedings, the objections of the other side will not be able to stop him.
Divorce in this case is carried out in court. The important thing here is filing a claim. Let’s tell you more about this.
You can apply for a divorce unilaterally either independently or with the help of a lawyer. We advise you to contact a specialist, because the speed of consideration of the case and its final result depend on a correctly drawn up claim.
Be sure to write in such a statement in detail about the reasons for the divorce, about the impossibility of further cohabitation as a spouse, about the relationship of the parties to each other, their relationship in the family. The court needs to know all this in order to draw up a complete picture of your relationship, because the other party will object to divorce. Correct argumentation should convince the court of the need to dissolve the marriage on the grounds that you gave. The evidence that you must also present to the court will only strengthen this belief.
Remember that the unilateral divorce procedure is easy if you turn to a specialist who provides constant legal support for your case.

If your wife or husband left to work in another country and your marriage ended because he or she had already found a better part there, the divorce can still be carried out.
A qualified lawyer will explain to you that a divorce without the presence of one of the spouses is a common situation in Ukraine, therefore the courts are already familiar with this practice of considering cases.
The procedure should begin as a normal legal process, namely, you should apply for a divorce unilaterally.

The proceedings take place with a message from the party on the official websites of the state authorities that the court is hearing the case on her divorce. You do not need to worry about how to send a subpoena to another country or by any other means inform the party about the implementation of such a process as divorce. The judiciary in Ukraine will take care of this.
The meetings will be held on the basis of the written materials of the case, i.e. on the basis of the claim and the evidence presented. That is why filing an application is such an important component of this process.
