E-Split: Greeks Can Soon Divorce Online in 10 Days

June 6, 2021

ATHENS – Making it easy not to look each other in the eye when it's over, Greeks as of July can get their divorce papers online from the gov.gr portal – through an attorney – and it will be final in as little as 10 days.

That's part of a new contentious family law that critics said will allow abusing parents to share custody of children, rammed through the Parliament by the ruling New Democracy government over objections.

Under the procedure, couples have to submit their papers and data through their lawyers, including the marriage certificate that brought them together, and then it will be accelerated through their attorneys and a notary.

The partners, soon to be former partners, will be updated on the end of their marriage and dissolution of their togetherness by e-mail, with the registry office also notified, although it wasn't said if that would include a text message to their cell phones saying the end.


ATHENS - Temperatures fell below 0C (32F) on Saturday morning in some areas of Greece, according to the automated meteorological stations of the National Observatory of Athens/meteo.
