Family Law and Dıvorce

As the smallest unit of society, the institution of the family holds an important place in social life due to family law’s regulation of the relationships between individuals who make up the family. These relationships between family members play a significant role in shaping society. Given the importance of this structure, lawmakers have addressed it, and as a result, a subfield of law, referred to as family law, has been established based on the provisions outlined in the Civil Code.

Izmir Divorce Lawyer

İzmir Boşanma Avukatı

Divorce cases are classified into two types: contested and uncontested divorce. In a contested divorce, the parties cannot agree. This disagreement can be about the divorce itself or its terms. In contested divorces, it is necessary to work with a divorce lawyer. In an uncontested divorce, both spouses agree on all aspects of the divorce. Additionally, both parties are seeking the divorce.

Uncontested divorces are therefore faster and less costly than contested divorces.

Uncontested divorces can sometimes turn into contested divorce cases. Therefore, it is best to manage this process with a lawyer. A divorce lawyer is one of the searches made according to the region for those who want to file for divorce in Izmir family courts. Many options may arise in these searches. The important thing is to work with a lawyer you feel comfortable with and who you can share your privacy with if necessary during the divorce process.

Divorce is the legal termination of a marriage. In some cases, divorce can be a difficult process. It can be one of the emotionally draining experiences. An Izmir divorce lawyer works to carry out the case positively from the beginning to the end of such potentially difficult situations. Issues such as the application process and necessary documents, file times, etc. can make this process even more stressful. The divorce lawyer will review your personal situation and then explain all your obligations during the divorce. They will ensure that your rights are fully protected throughout the case.

When a divorce case opened by one of the spouses is dismissed or the marriage is not restored within three years, the case can be reopened. If it is determined that the marriage cannot be restored after this case is opened, the judge will make a divorce decision shortly. If the judge determines that the marriage can be saved, a separation decision can be made.

There is no requirement for both parties to want the marriage to end in order for a divorce decision to be made. Only one party needs to prove that the marriage has broken down irretrievably. The process of proving that a marriage has ended is generally referred to as the grounds for divorce. Under Turkish Civil Code, the grounds for divorce are:

Adultery: If one spouse commits adultery, the other spouse can file for divorce.

Attempted murder or behavior that is insulting to honor.

Committing a crime or leading a dishonorable life.

One spouse leaving the home and not returning.

Lack of mental capacity.

Irretrievable breakdown of the marriage.

During divorce or separation proceedings, the court with jurisdiction automatically takes interim measures for matters such as the spouses’ residence, livelihood, financial management, or the care of children that are required during the trial period. For the judge to make a decision on divorce or separation, the grounds for divorce must be proven. You may be conducting a search for an Izmir divorce lawyer for reasons such as seeking advice on uncontested or contested divorce cases. One of the things to watch out for in this case is working with a lawyer with experience in family law.

In divorce cases, the plaintiff can write the divorce petition themselves. The number of divorce cases is quite high in big cities like Izmir. However, the duration of the trial can also be extended due to this intensity. Uncontested divorce cases are one of the fastest cases to be completed. Contested divorce cases, on the other hand, take longer. The best divorce lawyer in Izmir in this regard will do their best to ensure that their client gets through this potentially stressful process in the best way possible. To avoid dealing with both paperwork and emotional intensity during this stressful time, a lawyer is necessary. Utilizing the knowledge and experience of an experienced divorce lawyer can provide you with comprehensive assistance in matters of family law and divorce.
