Contact us for a complimentary document review for your power of attorney application for divorce decree. We are experienced on dissolution of marriage cases (Boşanma) as well as divorce decree registration at the Turkish courts (Tanıtma Mahkemesi’nde Boşanma).

P.S.: IF YOUR DIVORCE IS FINALIZED AT THE UNITED STATES COURTS,

You may need to submit your finalized divorce decree to the Turkish Family Court. On most cases, your finalized divorce decree needs to be translated and Apostilled. We recommend you consult with your lawyer, so that your documents would be complete.
