Online consensual divorce platform opens

An online platform making it easier for couples to divorce by mutual consent was made official and went online Thursday.

According to a joint decision issued by the ministers for Digital Government Kyriakos Pierrakakis and Justice Kostas Tsiaras, marriages can now be dissolved without the physical presence of the couple being required at any stage of the process.

Under the new online system, parties are also spared the need of issuing a special power of attorney and providing a certificate verifying their signatures.

The new service is available (in Greek only) on the platform under the Family category.
