Service On Drafting Unilateral Divorce Petition

Divorce Counseling 20/08/2022

Divorce can arise from one of the spouses when marital life is no longer as desired. In general, the procedures prescribed to carry out the divorce process are quite detailed by law, but when drafting a petition for unilateral divorce, the petitioner needs to present his will and aspirations in the application but not everyone can do it. With this article below, Apolo Lawyers - Solicitors & Litigators (Tel:(+84) 903. 419. 479) will list the procedures to draft a unilateral divorce petition.

1/ Regarding marital relations: 

According to Article 56 Law on Marriage and Family 2014, when a spouse requests a divorce but the conciliation at the Court fails, the Court shall grant the unilateral divorce if there are grounds to do so such as: falling into a serious situation, the common life cannot be prolonged, the marriage purposes unachievable:  

  • A spouse commits domestic violence

  • The spouse seriously violates the rights and obligations of the spouse 

  • The spouse of the person who is declared missing by the Court requests a divorce, the Court shall grant the divorce. 

2/ Regarding common children: 

The petitioner for a unilateral divorce must clearly state how many children the couple has, the requirements for child custody as well as support. If you want to raise a child, how much support should the other person require? Or how much you can support so that the other person can raise children. 


3/ Regarding common property 

In principle, if there is common property during the marriage, then that property will be divided during divorce. However, the Court will base on many factors to decide how to divide assets. Factors such as: 

  • Circumstances of the family and of the husband and wife 

  • The contribution of husband and wife 

  • Protect the legitimate interests of each party in production, business and profession so that the parties have conditions to continue working to generate income. 

  • The fault of each party in violation of the rights and obligations of husband and wife 

It is necessary to specify information and request for division of common property. If there is none, also clearly state that there is none and do not ask the Court to divide. 

Regarding common debts: If in the process of living, the couple has common debts and wants the Court to divide them, they must also clearly state the information, grounds and request to divide those debts. If there is none, specify none and do not ask the Court to divide.
