Where can I get a divorce?

You can’t always get divorced in Denmark

Spouses can be divorced in Denmark if:

  • the spouse you are seeking a divorce from (the defendant) resides in Denmark
  • the spouse seeking a divorce (the claimant) is domiciled here and has either lived here for the last two years or has previously been domiciled in Denmark
  • the claimant is a Danish citizen and it is proven that, due to his citizenship, he cannot bring a case in the country where he/she resides
  • both parties are Danish citizens and the defendant does not object to proceedings in Denmark
  • the parties have been separated in Denmark within the last 5 years.
