Completeness of breakdown of marriag means the breakup of 3 bonds that should connect the spouses:

Our clients often ask a our divorce lawyer a following question: how long does it take to recognize that the breakdown of marriage is permanent? In Poland, the Divorce Courts assumes that there is a complete separation between spouses when such a breakdown of marriage has lasted for at least six months.

The breakdown of three bonds between spouses must be accurately described in the divorce application.

A divorce lawyer will help you through the lawsuit in Poland, including advice on parental responsibility, childcare, and make a proposal regarding the distribution of property.
