Divorce and Separation

In Turkey, divorce and separation are governed by Turkish Civil Law. To obtain a divorce, one party must file a lawsuit in court, and the court will make a final decision on the matter. Turkish law recognizes both fault-based and no-fault divorces, and the grounds for divorce include adultery, cruelty, desertion, and irretrievable breakdown of the marriage.

Child Custody and Support

Child custody and support are often the most emotional and contentious issues in a divorce or separation case. Under Turkish law, both parents have equal rights and responsibilities regarding the care and custody of their children. The court will determine custody based on the child’s best interests, taking into account factors such as the child’s age, health, education, and emotional needs.

Child support is also an important issue in divorce and separation cases. Under Turkish law, both parents have a legal obligation to support their children financially, and the court will determine child support based on the child’s needs and the financial resources of both parents.

In addition to divorce and child custody, there are many other family-related legal issues that may arise in Turkey.
