Foreigners Marriage in Egypt:
Marriage for foreigners in Egypt has become increasingly intricate in recent years. If you are planning to marry in Egypt, it is essential to fully understand all official requirements and seek guidance from a reputable foreign marriage agent, such as ASAS Law Firm.
Our team of professional lawyers and notaries has facilitated numerous civil marriages between
Egyptian citizens and foreigners in Egypt.

We provide comprehensive support in preparing all official
documentation and meeting the necessary requirements. Consult with one of our lawyers to ensure a smooth and hassle-free marriage process.

Basic Requirements for Marriage in Egypt:
Foreign spouses must provide identification cards, foreign passports, proof of citizenship, and
certificates of No Impediment or single status. These documents must be translated into Arabic and certified by the respective embassy in Egypt to be accepted by the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In cases where foreign embassies do not issue Certificate of Single Status or No Impediment Certificate, an Affidavit affirming single status must be provided and notarized by a local notary public.
Foreigners considering marriage to an Egyptian should familiarize themselves with Egyptian Family Law and Sharia, especially regarding the rights and responsibilities of spouses and parents. ASAS Law Firm urges clients to consult with an attorney to understand their rights and obligations before marrying an Egyptian citizen.

Foreigners Divorce in Egypt:
The divorce rate between Egyptians and foreigners has been on the rise due to various factors,
including cultural differences and instances of abuse or exploitation. According to Islamic Sharia law, husbands have relatively straightforward means to terminate marriages. However, Egyptian law grants women the right to file for divorce, even without the cooperation of their husbands,
regardless of nationality.
ASAS Law Firm has assisted numerous non-Egyptian women in filing for divorce from their Egyptian husbands, whether they are in Egypt or abroad. Consult with one of our lawyers to initiate the divorce process efficiently and effectively.

Important rules and regulations concerning divorce in Egypt:
The application of Muslim Law or church law depends on the religious affiliation of the spouses.

Custody and Visitation: 
As divorce rates between Egyptians and foreigners increase, disputes over child custody and
visitation rights have become more common. ASAS Law Firm has extensive experience in handling custody disputes involving dual-nationality children. Our team of professional lawyers can represent you in Egyptian courts regarding custody arrangements, visitation rights, and parental abduction issues. Consult with one of our lawyers to protect your parental rights and the well-being of your children.

Custody & Visitation in Egypt:
The Egyptian Family Law generally favors granting custody of minor children to mothers, with
fathers having visitation rights as prescribed by law. However, conflicts of law may arise in cases
involving dual-nationality children, necessitating legal intervention. ASAS Law Firm has successfully handled numerous custody cases involving dual-nationality children and can provide expert guidance on Egyptian laws pertaining to custody and visitation rights.
The International Cooperation Committee, also known as the “Good Office Committee,” was
established by the Egyptian Ministry of Justice to resolve custody disputes arising from mixed
marriages in Egypt. This committee aims to facilitate cooperation between parents and ensure
compliance with Egyptian Family Law and relevant foreign laws. ASAS Law Firm understands the complexities of custody disputes and strives to provide comprehensive legal assistance to expedite proceedings and protect the interests of our clients and their children.

Consult with an ASAS Attorney to receive personalized guidance and support tailored to your specific situation.
