If you’re a foreigner, married to a Bulgarian, and you’re experiencing troubles with your marriage, or you’re having doubts about whether your spouse is planning a divorce, then perhaps you’re also wondering if it matters, that you’re married to a Bulgarian citizen.
You should know that every Bulgarian citizen may file lawsuit for a divorce in the Bulgarian court. The legal procedure goes as following: Bulgarian citizen may file a suit for divorce against his spouse, if the latter has had lived in Bulgaria for the past year, prior the suit. Should you – as a foreigner – have not resided in Bulgaria for the past year, you may then make a demur at the jurisdiction of the Bulgarian court, and ask for the lawsuit to be transferred to a court in your usual country of residence.
You may always make a demur at the jurisdiction of the Bulgarian court, if your spouse – as a Bulgarian citizen – has not been living in Bulgaria for the past year prior the lawsuit, but regardless has filed the lawsuit for divorce in Bulgarian court, solely for his/her convenience.
