Divorce is carried out by bodies of civil status (ZAGS) by mutual application of the spouses, if they have no minor children. Marriage is terminated upon expiry of one month after filing of application about divorce. This period is specifically provided by law in case if the spouses wish to change their minds, thereby saving the family.
If the spouses apply for divorce to the Registrar, before the expiration of 1 month decided to pick it up, it is possible only in the presence of two parties and with mutual consent. This couple should write a joint statement in which to specify the reasons for such denial. According to the results of consideration of the statement between spouses is an agreement on the termination of procedure of dissolution of marriage. It must be in writing and notarized.
If a request to take a statement about divorce addressed only one of the spouses, the process of divorce will not be stopped (regardless of whether or not the other spouse). In such cases it is necessary to apply to court where necessary to defend their point of view. In his statement should: describe the situation; indicate when and by whom the application was filed on divorce; the reasons why there was a desire to take a statement; and the opinion of the spouse, if known; the reason for which the other spouse could not come to the office of the Registrar's office to write a joint statement about the refusal of the divorce.
This statement will be a hearing in which the parties must prove to the court that they had reconciled and do not want to divorce. Following consideration of the case the court will take a decision which would force the authority of the Registrar to discontinue the divorce proceedings, or refuse to the applicant in satisfaction of his claims. If you are not satisfied with court decisions (the court did not satisfy your requirements), don't despair - it can be appealed in cassation. In practice, the judges are going to meet spouses who want to save their marriage, therefore, with high probability will meet you.
