Experience the advantages of partnering with ACON on Family Law in Azerbaijan!
In contemporary times, numerous individuals find themselves becoming participants in marriage and divorce processes on a regular basis. Family law in Azerbaijan is governed by the Family Code of Azerbaijan. This field of law covers a wide range of issues related to marriage, divorce, and property rights.
Foreign nationals are also eligible to enter into and dissolve marriages in our country, in the same manner as Azerbaijani citizens. For them, the process of marriage registration in Azerbaijan involves obtaining a certificate of non-impediment from their country of origin. This is for certifying that they are free to marry. The couple must then register their marriage with the Azerbaijani authorities for it to be acknowledged under Azerbaijani law.
In cases of divorce, the Azerbaijani courts follow the principle of no-fault divorce. This principle means that a divorce can be granted without either party having to prove fault or wrongdoing. Divorce and property disputes can be resolved through mediation or litigation in the Azerbaijani courts. It’s important to note that the Azerbaijani legal system operates primarily in the Azerbaijani language. However, foreign nationals may necessitate the services of an interpreter or translator to navigate the legal system. We do also recommend seeking the assistance of qualified family lawyers during the process of divorce in Azerbaijan.
