Divorce in Turkey

Child Custody Law in Turkey

Child custody can be the single most difficult issue in the divorce process. Assets are split in the petition as a one-time agreement, but the impact of custody arrangements continues after the divorce is finalized in accordance with the details of the petition.

It is a common tactic in divorce proceedings to point out the other party as an unfit parent. The purpose of this approach is to win custody of the children, limit visitation rights of the other party, protect the children from harm, or make one’s claim that they are the better party for which the court should assign custody. Our Turkish family law attorneys will assist you with your child custody cases in Turkey.

You must prepare yourself so that you could be portrayed this way in the divorce proceedings. It is often said that all the “dirty laundry” comes out during a divorce. Understand that this is a fight in which you must represent your best interests as well as the best interests of your children.

Child Custody Law in Turkey

According to Turkish family law; there is only one type of conservatorship available which is sole managing conservatorship. It refers to the custodial parent who has actual possession of the child at all times, except during the time the other parent has visitation rights.

There is no joint managing conservatorship in Turkey yet.

The family regulations in Turkey include the rules regarding children, especially when their parents made a decision to get divorced. The rules related to custody are to be found in the Turkish Civil Code No. 4721 which stipulates that the mother and the father have custody rights from the birth of a child until he/she is 18 years old.

If they are divorced, the custody is given to one of the parents, if the child was born during the marriage, and to the mother, if she gave birth outside a conjugal union.

Both parents are the legal representatives of the child until he is 18 years old; after this age, she/he will represent himself, and his/her parents aren’t allowed anymore to act on his/her behalf.
