What type of divorce visa is right for me?
👋 Hello, This is K-VISA
Recently, we have been receiving a lot of inquiries about divorce.
Divorce is just as common as migrant marriage.
However, it is often asked what kind of divorce visa
is more suitable or what is the most effective
way to reduce damage in the divorce process.
So today, I am going to talk about the
general story of divorce visa.
It would be nice if there was no such thing as a divorce,
but there are many cases of divorce for personal reasons
and other practical reasons in life.
In fact, there are many different types of divorce visas
as well as for a variety of reasons.
✍️ Consensual divorce visa
An example is consensual divorce
and the name of the visa is F-1-6.
The important parts here are
the three basic requirements below.
1️⃣ The fact that the divorce was mutually agreed upon
2️⃣ No children
3️⃣ The fact that there are other reasons to stay in Korea
(For example, the reason for the division of the property, etc.)
In this case, you can stay in Korea
for a total of 1 year, twice every 6 months.
✍️ Child Raising Divorce Visa
Second, there is a visa to stay in Korea
for the purpose of raising children
even though they are divorced. It's called the F-6-2.
In other words, it is a visa that is issued
when a person continues to stay in Korea
due to custody or interview rights despite divorce.
The requirements are:
1️⃣ Consensus or legally divorced
2️⃣ Have a child born and must be a minor
3️⃣ The contents of the right to interview or custody
shall be specified in the judgment of the family court;
At this time, you can stay until
your child becomes an adult,
and since the F-6 visa is maintained,
it is possible to change to an
F-5 permanent resident status later.
✍️ Divorce that occurred for reasons
other than your fault
Finally, it is a case of divorce without
any cause attributable to you.
In other words, it means a case of divorce due to reasons
attributable to the Korean spouse, not the foreign spouse.
If you meet these basic requirements as below,
you can change your visa.
1️⃣ In case of divorce due to the fault of the Korean spouse
2️⃣ In case the contents of the document
for the cause attributable are stated
3️⃣ Where the relevant contents are stated
in the divorce decree in the Family Court
4️⃣ In case there is other evidence
💡 You may want to know
Can I change my visa only after the divorce is over?
No, it is possible to extend or
change the process of preparing for divorce.
In addition, there is a visa that can be changed
if the reason is attributable to the foreign spouse
other than the above,
but is taking care of the family of the Korean spouse.
In other words,
I would like to point out that there are visas
for various reasons, as much as divorce for various reasons.
Visa is a forest and it is easy to think of it as an algorithm,
and it is very important to prepare with
the overall contents of the visa in mind.
