Why you need a notarized translation of your divorce documents

Thanks to globalisation, the numbers of intercultural relationships is increasing. These couples then get married in Switzerland or in the home country of the non-Swiss partner. But in such cases, a relationship breakdown means a mountain of paperwork.

What documents do I need to get translated?

Divorce proceedings culminate in the divorce decree, which lists all decisions made during the divorce proceedings, e.g. concerning maintenance, custody and cost allocation. This document must be translated. If you want to get a foreign divorce certificate officially recognised in Switzerland, you need a notarized translation, generally in German. This is an official document which requires proof of authenticity. The applicants must cover the costs of this translation themselves. The decree providing information about the legal divorce also requires an apostille (official authentication). This also applies if you want to submit a Swiss divorce decree in a country with a different official language.
