Dear Sir:

The citizenship of the parties is not relevant, you can present a divorce case as long as you bring to your country the proper documents, (the marriage certificate in this case) duly legalized, in order to be recognized by the local authorities.

For instance, if you got married in United States, with a Costa Rican, you can get divorced in Costa Rica, if you bring the marriage certificate duly consularized and translated.

If you get divorced abroad, and you want to inscribe the divorce in Costa Rica, there is another process , where you inscribe a foreign resolution before the Civil Registry.

How long to get a divorce in Costa Rica if you live in Costa Rica?

generally speaking Costa Rica does not grant divorces prior to the third anniversary of your wedding date. there are exceptions but they are very difficult to pursue. the overwhelming majority of people who are married and seek a divorce usually wait until the 3 year mark to begin divorce proceedings. in the meantime you can have an attorney file for legal separation on your behalf. this isn't the same as being divorced but it does state for the record the date that the marriage stopped functioning normally. Actually, the laws have changed recently regarding divorce. You no longer have to wait three years. You can divorced anytime, and the process, like the states takes about six months.
