Divorce

Each divorce judgment pronounced in Belgium will be entered in the Database of Acts of the Civil Registry by the court clerks. The City of Brussels does still issue the divorce certificates.

Divorces pronounced abroad

The City of Brussels has jurisdiction for foreign decisions on divorce of citizens living on its territory (postal codes 1000, 1020, 1120 and 1130) and also for Belgians who were always registered abroad.
