Despite the dif­fi­cult times, life in our coun­try does not stop: Ukraini­ans con­tin­ue to mar­ry and cre­ate new fam­i­lies, albeit with­out loud cel­e­bra­tions and lav­ish cer­e­monies. After such a test of the endurance of feel­ings, even those who were not in a hur­ry to take such an impor­tant step began to think about mar­riage. But how is the reg­is­tra­tion of mar­riages in Ukraine dur­ing mar­tial law? In this arti­cle Chan­fash­ion will pro­vide instruc­tions on how to mar­ry dur­ing wartime.

How to marry a civilian during the war?

If you are out­side the zone of active hos­til­i­ties, the pro­ce­dure is quite sim­ple. Choose the most con­ve­nient depart­ment of the RAGS for you, spec­i­fy their work sched­ule and sub­mit an appli­ca­tion for mar­riage reg­is­tra­tion in per­son. Do not for­get to take with you the orig­i­nal pass­ports of cit­i­zens of Ukraine and a doc­u­ment on the dis­so­lu­tion of a pre­vi­ous mar­riage, if one of you was already mar­ried. Also, a receipt for pay­ment of the state duty for mar­riage reg­is­tra­tion is required to sub­mit an appli­ca­tion.

In addi­tion, you can sub­mit an appli­ca­tion on the web­site of the Min­istry of Jus­tice. At the link you will find detailed instruc­tions on how sub­mit an appli­ca­tion for mar­riage reg­is­tra­tion online.

Cur­rent­ly, you can offi­cial­ly become hus­band and wife even faster than before.

Dur­ing mar­tial law, every adult cit­i­zen of Ukraine has the oppor­tu­ni­ty to reg­is­ter a mar­riage sim­ply on the day of fil­ing the appli­ca­tion. This accel­er­a­tion of the pro­ce­dure (which in calm times takes at least a month) is pos­si­ble thanks to part 2 of Arti­cle 32 of the Fam­i­ly Code of Ukraine.

What about the military?

The state made sure that our defend­ers were able to legit­imize their rela­tion­ships, even while in the war zone. Thanks to this, mil­i­tary per­son­nel can reg­is­ter a mar­riage with­out per­son­al pres­ence. This sim­pli­fi­ca­tion can be used by mil­i­tary per­son­nel from the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the Secu­ri­ty Ser­vice of Ukraine, the For­eign Intel­li­gence Ser­vice, the State Secu­ri­ty Depart­ment, bor­der guards, and nation­al guards­men.

Such a cer­e­mo­ny takes place with the help of video com­mu­ni­ca­tion with­out the manda­to­ry pres­ence of one or both per­sons from the future spouse.

In order to exer­cise the right to remote mar­riage reg­is­tra­tion, a mil­i­tary per­son must sub­mit a cor­re­spond­ing appli­ca­tion to his com­man­der, who will cer­ti­fy the authen­tic­i­ty of the doc­u­ment.

We would like to remind you that in wartime, mar­riage cer­e­monies can be per­formed not only by civ­il reg­istry office employ­ees, but also by police rep­re­sen­ta­tives, med­ical work­ers, and mil­i­tary per­son­nel. In this case, you need to sub­mit the act of mar­riage reg­is­tra­tion to any civ­il reg­istry office so that the updat­ed data is entered into the state reg­is­ter and the mar­riage becomes ful­ly valid. After this pro­ce­dure, the new­ly­weds will be able to get their mar­riage cer­tifi­cates.
