Welcome to Dutch Divorce Lawyer, a website specifically developed for foreign nationals and expatriates seeking a divorce in The Netherlands.
We explain how and when you can petition for divorce here in The Netherlands. We also provide you with tips and tricks so you are prepared for proceedings and any negotiations with your spouse.
The Dutch have a very down to earth approach to divorce. If parties are in agreement, then a divorce can take as little as six weeks from beginning to end. This makes The Netherlands a popular choice over other countries, where a waiting period is often mandatory for a divorce to become final. Even a contested divorce takes a relatively short amount of time in The Netherlands.
However, if you are a foreign national or are a naturalised citizen and Dutch is not your first language, the divorce process can be daunting. Dutch Divorce Lawyer aims to demystify the process so you can make informed choices. Do you want a collaborative process, via mediation or a joint divorce lawyer, or do you foresee a contested divorce?
Please feel free to browse Dutch Divorce Lawyer and if you have any questions or feedback, please do not hesitate to contact us!
