The divorce of a Portuguese citizen that is decreed abroad must be transcribed to Portugal in order to be registered on the birth certificate.
Whether by court judgement or notarial deed, the foreign decision must be reviewed and confirmed in order for it to be valid in Portugal.
The process of reviewing a foreign judgement is judicial, requires the assistance of a lawyer and can only be brought in Portugal.
We will analyse and compare birth certificates and proof of residence documents, taking the opportunity to detect any discrepancies in the documents that might hinder the process.
* In the citizenship process the client receives a certificate of the Portuguese birth certificate and has the obligation to request the issuance of the “Citizen Card” and in possession of the latter, if desired, it can also request the issuance of the “Portuguese Passport”. Both documents can be issued at the Portuguese Embassy and/or Consulate or directly in Portugal. Ask us how.
