Divorce

Post by Lizzycalder » Tue Jul 09, 2019 7:53 am

Hi there

I'm a New Zealander and my future husband is Chilean but a New Zealand resident. He married in Chile over 20 years ago and has been living in New Zealand for about 12 years. His ex wife will not sign any documents. Can he get a divorce without her consent?

Sounds like the ex-wife is very much still his wife. Spencer Global should be able to handle the case.

Not in Chile for now, but still lurking.

yes, but she has to be served. I have to ask, is she still living in Chile?

The reason I ask is the process of serving someone through diplomatic channels outside of chile is really slow. much simpler if she is living in Chile.
