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.
