Re: How long after a divorce can you remarry in Switzerland?

Welcome to the forum.

Have you looked at www.binational.ch yet ?

Also:

www.eazw.admin.ch

Who today remarry or register a partnership would be required to demonstrate only that has been canceled the previous marriage or partnership, or dissolved. There's no more waiting, for example, after a divorce in order to marry again or to register a partnership.

Wer sich heute wieder verheiraten oder eine Partnerschaft registrieren lassen möchte, muss nur nachweisen, dass die frühere Ehe oder Partnerschaft annuliert oder aufgelöst worden ist. Es gibt keine Wartezeiten mehr

Re: How long after a divorce can you remarry in Switzerland?

I would suggest living together first for a few years and then consider this marriage option instead of doing a wifeswap every once in a while.....

it might be a little tricky to legally live together in Switzerland without being married since she's not a EU citizen (at least that is how I define ABROAD)

Re: How long after a divorce can you remarry in Switzerland?

The Swiss Government is very weary of people who divorce soon after getting Swiss nationality- so just wondering if they could make life difficult or not in such cases?

Re: How long after a divorce can you remarry in Switzerland?

Once you are divorced, you are no longer considered legally married, meaning you can remarry (the essential prerequisite to marriage being that a person is single - either because they were never married or were once married and that marriage has terminated - be it through death, annullment or divorce).

At least that is the logical answer to your question.

Re: How long after a divorce can you remarry in Switzerland?

Not in CH I suppose, but in areas where English law prevails to some extent, there is a "waiting" period ( Decree Nisi and Decree Nisi Absolute ).

In my country, it takes 6 months for the Absolute papers after which remarriage is permitted.

In England, at the decree nisi stage, you are not divorced - merely officially separated.

The point is - however you arrive at the end point, once you are at that end point (ie divorced) you are free to remarry. Any intermediate stages (in English law decree nisi) do not count as being divorced and should not be confused with actually being divorced.

Hence the answer to question - how long do I have to wait to remarry once I am divorced? You do not. You are divorced. You can remarry.

Re: How long after a divorce can you remarry in Switzerland?

Call me a nit picker but the correct answer to the OPs question
"How long after a divorce can you remarry in Switzerland?" is "Till the end of your life".

This. If I was the OP I would be more worried about keeping my passport than remarriage if the passport was through naturalisation "facilitee". Divorce within 5 (i think, maybe 7) years of acquiring nationality if one did so through the marriage exposes the person to having the naturalization annulled. Most of the people got caught because they remarried so soon after the divorce with someone they brought over. I would keep my head down and not get married for a couple years in the same situation.

If it was naturalisation "ordinaire" it is another story.
