A) YES. Pursuant Dominican Divorce Law 142, at least one of the spouses must travel to Dominican Republic to appear in person before the Judge the day of the hearing in the Dominican court. You CANNOT divorce BY PROXY, or without at least one party appearing in person before the Judge.

Q) Why there are websites in the Internet, saying that it is not required to travel to Dominican Republic to get a Divorce in Dominican Republic?

A)If one of the party does not travel to Dominican Republic to appear in person before the Judge the day of the hearing, the divorce might be void.
Unfortunately, there is plenty of misleading websites in the Internet stating that none of the parties needs to travel to Dominican Republic to obtain their divorce. But, that is misleading and incorrect. Unless one of the spouses is a Dominican national living and residing in the Dominican Republic; or one of the foreign spouses is residing in the Dominican Republic, you or your spouse must appear in person before the Dominican court.
The Law is very clear. Dominican divorces done by Proxy or by mail are fraudulent.

Q) I heard that some Dominican Divorces had to be refiled in US because they were not recognized.

A) If a Dominican Divorce was considered void or not recognized by a court in US, by the USCIS or IRS, it was more likely because there was lack of due process during the proceeding done either by the parties or their attorneys. The Dominican divorces that have been considered invalid or void are those divorces that were done in the past by proxy, by mail, without a separation agreement signed by both parties, without the knowledge and the mutual consent of both parties or without at least one party traveling to Dominican Republic and appearing in person before the Judge at the hearing.

Q) I got my Dominican divorce prior 1998. Is it a valid divorce?

A) If you obtained a Dominican divorce between 1971 and 1998, it is possible that you are still married to your ex-spouse!

But, there is a very large number of divorces performed in Dominican Republic during those days, done in a fraudulent way or incorrectly.
