The question of which party should open the divorce case is one of the most curious questions.

According to Civil Turkish Law numbered 4721, It doesn’t matter which side filed the divorce case. Because it does not have a positive or negative effect on the course of the trial.

The defendant may request the dismissal of the case in the same court within two weeks from the notification of the complaint and the acceptance of the petition of the defendant.

If the two weeks period has elapsed, he may file a divorce case in another court and request that it be combined with the previously filed divorce case.
