How to divorce in Tbilisi

Did you get married in Tbilisi and now the marriage does not work?

I always wish “Love forever” for my guests in Tbilisi but I know, life is life. I always hope the thought to proceed for divorce is just a temporary moment  and people can set up this issue without to arrive at the final point. By the way, if you decided, here you find  the general info.


The first step before to file for divorce is to think if you need to find an attorney in your country for the Divorce Settlement Agreement.  Before divorce you can set this agreement regarding roles, properties, affidativ, children cares or what else is important to agree between each other taking the step to divorce.
Here the info regarding 2 options how to get the certificate of divorce in Georgia.


a) Divorce procedure in Georgia: Groom and bride must sign for application of divorce front of local authority in Georgia. It means you must come together in Georgia. At this moment, due to pandemia, it is not so easy for everybody.

6 working days after the application, the divorce certificate will be released belong the Georgian law. Than it must be proceceed for international validity with official translation and apostille/legalization by the Ministry of Foreign affairs. It can be done in other 2-4 working days.
Price to do this full procedure will be 850 usd and you must stay in Tbilisi 10 working days minimum.

b) Another procedure is the “power of attorney” and you do not need to come in Georgia, saving from one side flights, journey, meals, pcr test and whaterver a travel can cost.
You must send to me by dhl in Tbilisi a power of attorney in English language with apostille valid for Georgia nation to Mr X (I will inform you who will in charge for that) to apply for your divorce certificate.The power of attorney must be done from you both, in few words, we need 2 power of attorney, one per each and it will give full power and authority to do and perform on may behalf all and every act and thing necessary for any legal requirements, request of documents, changement of status for your divorce.
Your local attorney or specify agency can help you to set this delegation and maybe together the Divorce settlement agreement above mentioned.


When we will get the power of Attorney with the apostille seal valid for the Georgia nation , we will process it belong the Georgian law with the related translation and notary authority seal. Than the delegate person can apply for your divorce. After 6 working days (not before by law), the delegate person has to apply to get the international paperwork. Certificate of divorce with the legalization seal or apostille seal will be released in some working days.Than we have to send you by dhl all paperwork to you.

This procedure will cost 1000usd and must be paid in advance. We will need around 15-20 days to perfom it from when we will get your power of attorney.

The best Basic way to get married in Tbilisi

You cannot believe all the issues could happen during a wedding procedure abroad. The Wedding in Tbilisi is very sensible act related bureaucracy and it should be kept with all the attention. It does not mean to spread money if you are not interested in a ceremony. As I already wrote about “Simple” wedding in Tbilisi, hold in the public hall, I advise to follow a “Basic” safe step for your date, even if you wish just “sign and go” marriage path.

What is mentioned in Tbilisi as “Basicwedding is the best way to get a hassle free service, stress free and with high save of money, despect to the fact the word “Simple” could make you think.



What is the difference between Simple and Basic wedding in Tbilisi?

The Basic Wedding I usually offer to my guest is including the professional assistance, the documents ready in advance, a confirmed time to apply for wedding, a private wedding room to execute the civil rite, the civil rite (or just the sign if you prefer) hassle-free procedure after wedding to release the international documents and of course my photography service that you will treasure for years to come.



All this procedure, so called Basic, just cost few money more. A very ridiculous money difference against a high lost of time, unsafe queue in public hall and no warranty in the right document release.

Comparing the procedure for the Simple service, in the Basic package you will have an official attendant of the Ministry of Interior following your application, inserting your data, checking careful your request and everything while you are comfortable waiting sitting down in a clean, safe, private lounge.

In the Simple service, you will queue up behind other people till your number will come. You will meet just an operator in a public office that have many different bureaucracy procedure to follow before and after you. In the Basic service your attendant is just specialist for the wedding and knows in a deep way what to do related weddings, expecially for foreigners applications.



In the Simple service, after application you have to go away and to waite for sms to confirm your application is valid. The sms can come anytime during the day and sometimes do not come or come the day after (including issues in your telephone, sim card or whatever). In the Basic service you will have a fixed time after application for your civil rite, even straight after application if you do not wish any ceremony you can get married.

In the Simple service your civil rite does not exist, you just sign in while people is queuing up to your desk. In the basic service you can have a private lounge for the civil rite. That is nice even you wish just to sign or to have a romantic short ceremony and a couple of photos together. Absolutely great if you have some guests to you as it gives elegance without to loose money.



Actually, I provide for basic package to everybody asking my help or my photography service in Tbilisi. This pandemia time has been a proof how much the privacy, safety and cleanness are important to manage a perfect stress free, smooth, easy procedure for your wedding in Tbilisi.

Ask for a Basic service, email me.

Simplest and cheapest way to get married in Tbilisi

You do not want formalities and really you just need to get married and to get the marriage certificate. You will think about parties when you will be back home or when your life situation will give you the right moment to organize that. There are a lot of people in the world, expats, digital nomad, foreigners in other countries that just need to tie the knot out any traditional scheme.

So, you did your search and you find in Tbilisi and in the Georgia country the option suitable for you. What everybody names “simple” package, it is just a sign in a paper in a public hall, usually the city Hall. This procedure usually includes the assistance to the documents, translation, notary, witnesses and everything related to set up this document. No frills at all.



Do you think you are saving money?

In Tbilisi the difference in money between a simple path in a public crowdy place and one clean, nice wedding lounge is very short. What nobody will explain you clear is the lost in time you will spend probably losing all the day from the moment you get in the public place administration till the moment you will be out with your certificate of marriage.

What can be exactly?

Few times everything went smooth and I can say in less time than I expected but the most of time these are the common issues:



– You have to understand you are giving your application of marriage (completely in Georgian) to an operator that does hundred different documents and operations during the day. He/she is not always ready to insert properly your name and surname and all your private data, from your foreign language to Georgian language. Any letter will be translated back in an official document for your country and if there is only one letter mistake, your country can refuse the document in the future. Furthermore, many operators, even if you pass the Georgian boarder regularly, can ask you for your visa translation. It means you must go out to the public hall, to find a translator and notary, to do the document and to be back to the public hall. Of course, you will need to do a new queue, you will meet a new operator and restart to insert your data in the Georgian system.



When this operation is over, the operator will say to you to go away and to wait for a sms to come back with your witnesses later on. There is not a fixed time, can pass some hours and even all day. In that moment you will understand you did not save money. Even worst if you decided to go with the help of one citizen that of course will not have nothing in charge if your documents have problems or any issues could occur.

If you wish to understand the difference and how much you save in stress and time, continue reading at this point about a Basic Service with a private wedding lounge.

By the way, if you are easy going person and you do not care about warning and you wish this simple way to get married, here you find a link for the service for “Simply” Wedding in Tbilisi.



 

 

My wedding in Tbilisi Apostille or Legalization seals?

One of the most frequest question is what does mean Apostille or Legalization in your certificate of marriage. The difference is very important to be learn as it can make a big issue to register the marriage later in your country or in your embassy or in a third part country where you are expat and temporary or permanent residents.

Sometimes people does not get attention at all to this matter and frequently they arrived in Tbilisi without to get the proper informations.



The wedding in Tbilisi could be very smooth and fast but it will be not so easy, smooth and fast to register the wedding if you get wrong in this matter.

All countries related l’Hague convention are belong Apostille that practically by-pass your embassy and make quite fast to approch for the registration of your wedding hold abroad. if your country is not belong l’hague convention, you must require a certificate of marriage with legalization. The first legalization seals are from the country issuing the certificate. So the certificate of marriage will have the Legalization seals by Georgian law. On contrary the Apostille, the certificate with Legalization  is not enough for a lot of countries and many Nations requires their seals stamped as well in that document. It means after the release of the official certificate of marriage in Georgia with the Legalization seals, you will need to get the stamp of the related embassy as well.

There are some exception like Canada and few other country and we try constantly to be updated but our advice is to check directly with your embassy or municipality what to get to register your marriage abroad.

Do You want a civil or religious rite or rather both?
Have you ever been married ?

If you want to get  married without to spend too much time in Tbilisi, certainly the civil rite ceremony is made for you because even the religious rite of the Apostolic Autocephalous Orthodox Georgian church requires ex novo the Baptism.

Georgians do the both rituals in the same day to avoid any legal misunderstanding between church and civil law. We talk on this page about what we need to be married with the civil rite ceremony.
