Private Reasons
  • Fornication

It is possible to request information about the situation that led to the divorce from the people we provide Istanbul Divorce Attorney service. In order for the divorce process to proceed in a best way, the reason should be clearly stated. The most common ground for divorce is fornication. Fornication is the conceptual equivalent of one of the spouses having sexual intercourse with another woman or man at least once. In other words, one of the spouses cheating on his/her spouse with the opposite sex is called fornication. However, the person with extramarital affair must be of the opposite sex. The fact that one of the spouses has a relationship with someone of his/her own sex is the reason for “dishonorable conduct” Six months after the spouse who has the right to sue learns the grounds for the divorce and, in any case, five years after the act of fornication, the right to sue will be dismissed. The forgiving party does not have the right to sue.

  • Attempt Against Life/Misdemeanor/Indignity

Attempt against life, misdemeanor and indignity will be also counted as grounds for divorce through our Istanbul Divorce Attorney service. Six months after the spouse who has the right to sue learns the grounds for the divorce and, in any case, five years after the act of fornication, the right to sue will be dismissed. Otherwise, a divorce lawsuit cannot be filed for this reason. The forgiving party has no right to sue.

  • Committing Crime and Dishonorable Conduct

Committing Crime or Dishonorable Conduct of one of the spouse will be also evaluated as grounds for divorce. If one of the spouses commits a humiliating crime or lives a dishonorable life and for these reasons, the other spouse cannot be expected to live with him, this spouse can always file a divorce suit. There are two different optional acts. The first is when one of the spouses committed a humiliating crime. The other act is that one of the spouses lives a dishonorable life and for these reasons, it should not be expected from the other spouse to live with him. The person who will decide this is the judge. For this reason, the Istanbul Divorce Attorney provides consultancy to his Clients who want to open a divorce case and ensures that the judge makes this decision.

  • Abandonment

Another situation considered among the grounds for divorce is abandonment. There are some obligations arising from the marriage union. Failure of one of the spouses to fulfil these obligations is called abandonment. After a minimum of 4 months have passed since the spouse left the house, a notice is sent to the spouse who leaves the house. After the notification, 2 months is given to the Leaving spouse. This notice is made by announcement if necessary. This brings the following result; Unless 6 months have passed since the abandonment took place, a divorce action for abandonment cannot be filed.

  • Mental Disease

Based on our Istanbul Divorce Attorney and counselling service, it is possible to say that another ground for the divorce is the loss of mental health of one of the spouses after marriage. However, this situation has some conditions. First of all, daily life must be intolerable because one of the spouses loses their mental health. Another condition is that; It should be determined through the official medical board report that treatment of the spouse who has lost his mental health is not possible.

General Causes

The general reasons for the termination of marriage are as follows;

  • Breakdown of Marriage Union

Another name for Breakdown of Marriage Union is incompatibility. This statement is very important for detecting the situation that caused the divorce. The meaning of this word is that the temperaments do not match. Because it is possible that two people who are normally very good separately cannot adapt when they come together. Based on our Istanbul Divorce Attorney and Contracted Divorce Attorney services, it is possible to say that we often encounter this situation. Because it is not necessary for one party to be guilty for the marriage union to end.

As a result of the breakdown of the marriage union, people who wants uncontested divorce must have had at least 1 year since their marriage. If only one of the parties wants a divorce, and the nonconformity between the spouses persists, even though it has been 3 years since this request was rejected by the judge, the judge must accept the breakdown of marriage union by the foundation and agree that the divorce takes place only at the request of one or both of the spouses.

Uncontested Divorce

Uncontested divorce is a type of divorce due to the “breakdown of marriage union by foundation” contained in Paragraph 3 of Article 166 of the Turkish Civil Code and which has been included in the general reasons for divorce. Below are the conditions for an uncontested divorce.

If the parties agree these changes, a divorce decision will be made. In this case, the provision that the confessions of the parties will not bind the judge does not apply.
