End of a cohabitation relationship or divorce

A divorce application can be filed by both spouses together or by one of the spouses alone. Divorce is filed at the district court of the home municipality of one of the spouses.  You can agree with your spouse on how your property is divided, the care and maintenance of your children and all other shared matters the way you want. The only precondition is that you both have to be satisfied with the decision. If you cannot reach an agreement, you can seek outside help.
