Divorcing without a judge
As from the 1st of January 2017, it will be possible to divorce in France without a judge as follows:
- each spouse must be represented by his or her own lawyer,
- the divorce agreement is signed, after a 15 day cooling off period, by each party (and counter-signed their lawyer), and
- the agreement is then recorded by a notary (thereby giving the agreement its executory force).
NB : A contractual divorce, as opposed to a divorce judgment, may not be recognized and enforceable in some countries.
