Family Law Facts in Ireland
Have you ever wondered how other countries handle their family law matters and divorce? In the United States, every state has its own standards when it comes to separation periods, residency requirements, and financial fees. In Virginia, for example, some families must wait a year before proceeding with a divorce but in Alaska, the waiting period is only 30 days. With Saint Patrick’s Day right around the corner, we started to wonder how our friends in Ireland handle their matters of the heart and family. As an overwhelmingly Catholic country, it is easy to see how the staples of Catholicism influence the general population. Until the late 90s, divorce was forbidden by the Irish Constitution!
