In Colombia, now throw in 15 minutes

June 9 2005

The Colombian Senate passed a law against bureaucratic formalities. In particular, it has been simplified divorce proceedings. Now, this procedure takes no more than 15 minutes.

Under the new law, Colombians wishing to change their marital status, is now sufficient to appear before a notary public and for a modest fee to obtain a certificate of divorce, avoiding lengthy litigation and hiring lawyers.

If the former spouses have mutual claims or unresolved issues, they may apply to the special courts for family matters after the divorce.
