Provided terms for a divorce through a registry office without children and through a court in Ukraine?

Provided terms for a divorce through a registry office without children and through a court in Ukraine?

The terms of divorce through the registry office are fixed by the norms of the Family Code and the Rules of State Registration of Civil Status Acts, approved by Order of the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine dated October 18, 2000 No. 52/5, and constitute a calendar month from the date of application by the spouses. The terms for consideration of the statement in the registry office can be extended up to one year at the insistence and upon written application of at least one of the spouses.

The terms for the divorce of spouses in court, in contrast to the divorce in the registry office, are regulated by Art. 121 of the Civil Procedure Code, the court must establish a reasonable time frame for the performance of procedural actions.

Time limits are reasonable if they provide a sufficient time period, taking into account the circumstances, for the performance of the procedural action, and are corresponded to the purposes of civil proceedings.

In accordance with Article 6 of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (1950), signed on behalf of Ukraine on November 9, 1995 in Strasbourg and ratified by Ukraine on July 17, 1997, which according to Ukrainian norms is a part of the national legislation of Ukraine, everyone has the right to a fair and public hearing within a reasonable time by an independent and impartial court established on the basis of the law of the dispute about his civil rights and obligations.

The reasonableness of the time limits of the consideration of a divorce is depended on:

  • timeliness of the appointment of the case to the court hearing;
  • holding of court sessions at the appointed time;
  • terms of making a court decision by a judge;
  • timeliness of notification of the participants of the process about the date and place of the court session;
  • proper fixation of the court session by technical means;
  • meeting the deadline for the examination;
  • timeliness of issuance of a writ of execution and sending it to the body authorized to execute the judgment;
  • importance of the case for the plaintiff health;
  • recovery of alimony;
  • cases concerning child custody and so on.

The terms for the consideration of a divorce cannot be qualified as reasonable if they are violated due to:

  • the judge’s involvement into another process;
  • the appointment of court hearings with long intervals;
  • unfounded satisfaction of unreasonable motions of the participants of the process;
  • which caused the postponement of case’s consideration for a long time, delaying of preparatory proceedings;
  • failure to take measures to prevent the unfair behavior of the participants of the case, and so on.

The abovementioned and other reasons indicate a low level of organization of legal proceedings and an irresponsible attitude to the performance of the duties.

In practice, the terms for the divorce of spouses through court are:

  • 1-2 months by common agreement of spouses with children;
  • 1-2 months on the basis of the statement of claim, if the other of the spouses does not object
  • 3-6 months, if the other spouse actively denies and abuses procedural rights.
