May I suggest a "laugh" button ...... the "Thanks/Groan" is not sufficient.

Re: Divorce and Marriage in CH

Bigamy is not legal here. Couple the fact that it will also include you making an attestation that you are not married, it might not be the best thing to do.

What country do you come from?
What country does your current wife come from?
Where did you get married?
Those are the questions that you will need to answer first if we are able to give you any advice.

The question is where did you marry your first wife? The one that you want to leave. If you married in Greece, the chances are that you are going to have to get your divorse in Greece.

Re: Divorce and Marriage in CH

So:
You are from South Africa (do you have a South African or Greek passport?)
Your wife is a Greek citizen?
You got married in Greece.
You are now in love with a Swiss citizen (female I presume).

What type of visa do you have in Switzerland?

If you are a South African citizen, you will most probably have to go to Greece and get a divorse there, then you will need to apply for a spousal visa when and if you get married to the Swiss Citizen. Quite possibly you will have to leave Switzerland during this process and they may be skeptical about letting you back in unless all your papers are in order until you are married.

If you are a Greek citizen, then they can't really kick you out of Switzerland as you have an EU citizenship. Unless I suppose they find some really good reason to but still I don't think they can do much about it.

You will have to get divorsed from your first wife before you can get married again though. This is not like South Africa where you can have more than one wife.

I don't know, perhaps you can get divorsed here. That is why I say you should get a divorse lawyer. They will know the answer to those questions.
