Default Re: to get a divorce procedure

In Lebanon, the authority that made the marriage is responsible and competent to look into the marriage’s dissolution or divorce. Since your marriage was made abroad before a civil institution, then the civil court of first instance in Lebanon is competent to look into the divorce case. In your case, the civil court will rule according to the Cypriot law governing marriage. Please seek assistance of a competent family law attorney.

You may apply for a divorce in Lebanon. Where one was married is irrelevant for when one applies for divorce, divorce is decided and granted under the laws of the country where one applies.

Since you both agree, you can file jointly for a divorce, called dissolution. If you are Christian, but not Catholic which has stricter rules and divorce is rarely granted. My recommendation is that you contact the Bar Association in Lebanon for referral to a lawyer who can guide you through the hodgepodge of Christian/Muslim laws, varying even by sect, in Lebanon.
