Ukraine Marriage Laws
Understanding international marriage laws can be very confusing, especially when you are the one getting married! Finding the appropriate legal proceedings that are up-to-date is often difficult. The government bureaucracy is hardly helpful and the inconsistencies found amongst regional RAGS (the Department of Vital Statistics and Civil Status) offices often become a nightmare.
Our own experience at RAGS was stressful, in part because many of the department officials were not fully up-to-date on the latest changes in legislation. We also found ourselves having to comply with some requirements that were not stated by current law. This resulted in more time and money spent that we thought necessary.
We do our best to share accurate accounts of our own experiences as well as the hundreds of couples we have worked with over the years.
