Divorce in Turkey
The divorce procedures can be started by a Turkish lawyer with the power of attorney given by one of the spouses in front of a public notary. The spouses may choose if the trial is open to the public or will take place with closed doors. The Turkish judge may offer a period of three years for the reconciliation of the two spouses. After this period, if the two spouses continue to ask for a divorce, the judge will give them a court decision in this regard.
