Two Countries Military Personnel Can Consider for a Speedy Divorce

Thursday, June 11th, 2009

If you’re in the military, a fast, easy divorce might seem like impossibility. Depending on the nationality of your spouse and the length of your marriage, you may face challenges meeting residency requirements. This can make it impossible to divorce in your spouse’s home country. This is especially likely in the case of frequent moves. Filing for a divorce in your own home country may be costly and time-consuming, too, especially if your spouse is foreign and never resided in your country of origin.

Regardless of how complicated your marital situation might seem, it’s entirely possible you can obtain a speedy divorce with minimal effort. An overseas divorce in a country with simple requirements for obtaining divorce could be the best place to dissolve your marriage legally.

An overseas divorce is particularly appropriate in cases where both spouses are in mutual consent about the divorce. You can research information on how and where to obtain an overseas divorce online. It’s also wise to seek legal counsel from an expert in international divorce law before initiating a divorce overseas.

Two countries military personnel may consider for purposes of obtaining an overseas divorce are Guam and the Dominican Republic. Guam actually has an official law that requires a 90-day residency before a divorce can happen. Yet if your divorce is uncontested, this residency requirement is reduced to only seven days. Currently, at least one spouse involved in the divorce must stay on the island for 7 days before divorce papers can be filed. This is the only requirement for an uncontested divorce.

The Dominican Republic is another country where military personnel can obtain a very speedy divorce. In fact, if you meet four very easy requirements, you can be divorced in one day. The four requirements include mutual consent by both spouses, a power of attorney, the appearance of one spouse, and agreement and consent to jurisdiction. There is no residency requirement that foreigners must meet for a divorce in the Dominican Republic.

These are just two of the countries military personnel can consider for a fast, easy overseas divorce. To make the most of the opportunity international overseas divorces present, it’s essential you verify that the divorce decree will be legally recognized in your own and your spouse’s country of residence. Take the time to make the right decision about overseas divorce, and you’ll choose the ideal solution for your individual case.

Take Control of Your Divorce, Even if You’re Living Abroad

Monday, June 8th, 2009

Divorce is stressful under even the best of circumstances, and it can be particularly difficult for those living abroad. Whether you reside in a foreign country due to military service, other business or simply to be in a place you prefer to live, it won’t be easy to manage a divorce across international borders.

One problem international couples face when seeking a divorce involves jurisdiction. It can be difficult for those living abroad to meet residency requirements courts demand for divorce proceedings. You may not be able to dissolve your marriage in court within the country where you reside. You also might not qualify to divorce in your spouse’s country of residence.

Another issue faced by those living abroad involves the time and expense involved in travel. How many times will you need to appear in a court thousands of miles away? How will you manage the costs associated with airfare, time off from work and accommodations? Issues regarding time off can be particularly challenging for those in the military.

The length of time it can take to dissolve a marriage is another source of stress international couples must face. It could take a year or more to legally divorce in many countries, including the United States. If you’re eager to start your own business or remarry, this delay can be devastating. In all cases, it’s inconvenient and stressful to have the process dragged out for months on end.

The ultimate reason international divorces are so difficult is because they rely on government legal systems to dictate how and when couples can legally end their marriages. Even if both spouses are in agreement about the divorce and even agree on child custody and economic issues, their ability to divorce is in the hands of courts and their governments’ legal systems. The only ones truly working on their behalf are attorneys, and divorce lawyers are ultimately in the business of making money, therefore not making things easier!

One way to take control of your situation when you’re living abroad is to seek out information on an offshore divorce. If your divorce is by mutual consent, you can legally dissolve your marriage in a country such as Dominican Republic where divorce is managed quickly and efficiently. For an affordable fee, you can divorce offshore in a matter of days by meeting minimal requirements. You can find out more about offshore international divorces through online resources such as www.vipdivorce.com

Divorce, Caribbean Style! (A Little History)

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

Here’s an interesting historic article we found online from Time magazine, way back in 1971. It explains how Mexico put an end to the quickie divorce laws (a big business in seedy Juarez back in the sixties) and how Mexican lawyer Manuel Espinosa helped the Dominican Republic government launch their new offshore divorce program.

Since the Dominican foreign divorce law was passed in 1971 thousands of foreign citizens have taken advantage of the liberal fast divorce laws in the Dominican Republic and neighboring Haiti. Although Espinosa passed away a few years ago, his law firm in Santo Domingo is still in the divorce business today. The laws are still in place so you too can take advantage of a quickie express Offshore Divorce and you will find the relevant information and necessary forms in the International Express Divorce Kit that you can purchase online for just $27.

The eight Americans were greeted at Santo Domingo’s Las Americas Airport by a smiling host who guided them effortlessly through customs and on to the posh El Embajador Hotel for cocktails and a sumptuous dinner. Next morning the visitors were shuttled to the country’s thriving new tourist attraction: the Palace of Justice. By noontime they were divorced from their spouses back home. The cost: about $500 in legal expenses, plus air fare and the price of an overnight stay.

Since a liberalized divorce law went into effect in the Dominican Republic 2½ months ago, 220 Americans have participated in the brisk ritual… continue reading here

Legal International Divorces

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

Welcome to the VIP Divorce blog! At last a fast and efficient solution for your international divorce.

For too long, restrictive divorce laws have been shrouded in mystery. What is possibly one of the most important decisions you will ever make – emotionally, legally and financially – is something you need to understand yourself. Not something you should entrust to lawyers. By all means consult lawyers, but make sure you are the one in control.

International divorces (for example expat divorces, military divorces, and international divorce where the couple live in different countries) have always been particularly complicated, resulting in higher legal fees.

At last, we have the solution for your international divorce. The VIP Express Divorce Kit includes lots of information so you can start your own international divorce in Dominican Republic or Haiti by instructing lawyers over the internet from the comfort of your very own home! It’s so named (VIP Divorce) because many stars and showbiz personalities have gone for the quick, fast and efficient divorces available a short flight from Miami on the sunny Caribbean island of Hispaniola… or more precisely in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

In the meantime, Haiti – another nation on the island of Hispaniolaa – offers an option for last resort option, for those who cannot track down or locate their spouse to seek his or her co-operation, but want to break free from the chains of matrimony in order to carry on living their lives.

International divorce is about empowerment of the individual. It’s about picking up the pieces and continuing life as an individual, free of the legal bond to a partner you who no longer makes you happy. We all make mistakes, and the majority of marriages worldwide end in divorce or separation. If it’s happened to you, the last thing you want to do is drag out this emotional trauma in court cases that can last years and cost many thousands of dollars.

Why waste your time? Instead, use the VIP Express Divorce Kit which includes all the papers necessary to instruct lawyers in the Dominican Republic to represent you at the international family law court there in Santo Domingo, Distrito Nacional, Dominican Republic. Dominican divorces are bilateral, meaning that both spouses must consent to the divorce.

These same lawyers can also represent you in Haiti where only one spouse needs to request the divorce. The fact that the person is legally petitioning for a divorce is acceptable as evidence of incompatibility.

Both Dominican and Haitian divorces are valid internationally. It is possible to obtain embassy legalization on the divorce decrees that give the recognition of, for example, the full faith and credit of the US government in the case of legalizations by the US embassy in Santo Domingo. Whether your offshore/international divorce will be accepted in your home state or country depends on a lot of factors, which are fully explained to you in easy-to-read language (no legalese here).

In particular Dominican divorces are perfect for international couples such as expatriate workers. Dominican divorces are both easier and cheaper than quickie divorces from Guam or Mexico. The pros and cons of all four countries are explained in the VIP Express Divorce Kit. To read more about International Divorce, click here…
