Re: Signing Indian Divorce Papers from Switzerland
Welcome to EF n..z...r.
rather unfortunate first post.
You can sign all legal papers needed in any Indian court - but - you have to get them 'Apostilled'.
The process is as follows:
1. Ask you lawyer to send you a copy of the papers. this can be a soft copy which you can print here on any normal A4 paper (It does not have to be the green legal paper used by courts in India)
2. Go to a Public Notary (Notaire) - he will ask you sign IN HIS PRESCENCE, check your identity paper - and certify that you are the person whose signature appears on the document. (Cost 20-50CHF)
3. Now you have to go to the 'chancellery' - this is an officer - part of the cantonal administration - who will put an official seal on the document. This is the 'Apostille'. (Cost 30 chf approx)
You can now post this document for submission to the court in India.
Hope you are able to resolve your separation smoothly.
