Family Property Division in Turkey

Family Property & Debt

Under the Turkish Civil Law Code, your family property & debt is often split equally between you and your spouse unless you can prove significant unfairness of this arrangement. Our firm has cutting edge knowledge of how this new law affects our clients and can identify cases in which application of such law would be deemed unfair by the court. We strategize tactics for minimizing allocation of debt acquired by your spouse and for maximizing your receipt of family properties such as real estate, businesses, pensions, investments, household items and many other assets.

Real Estate Division

Your rights regarding real estate division depend upon the type of property at issue (for example, marital home, commercial property or rental property). Your marital home is generally divided 50/50, and its value is established at the time of your trial. You can recoup post-separation expenses through an agreement with your spouse regarding who pays the mortgage and who lives in the home until your divorce. Commonly, you can divide the home by selling it and dividing the equity or one party can buy out the other.

Turkish Legal Grounds for Divorce

Legal grounds for dissolution of marriage are divided into two groups: special and general. Sections 161 to 166 of the Turkish Civil Law Code define those legal grounds as follows: the special legal grounds are adultery, deliberate attempt to kill, maltreatment, humiliating behavior, committing a crime, unreasonable behavior, desertion, mental disease; the general legal grounds are incompatibility, coming to a mutual agreement on divorce, and living apart for three years after an application for dissolution of marriage has been denied by the court. Once a Family Court makes its decision, it can be appealed at First Instance Appeal Court (Bolge Istinaf Mahkemesi) after that it can be appealed at Turkish Supreme Court (Yargitay).
