Hi guys,

I've been recently divorced and the appealing days are passed. I've checked Skatteverket and my marital status is Divorced.

I was wondering if my status will be divorced forever or it will change to single? and how long it will take to become single again (is there any laws wrote somewhere regarding to this matter?) ?

Thanks in advance,

At a guess you will remain as divorced until you re-marry. By divorced does, of course, mean that you are no longer married, but reflects the fact that you have been so. You are single - thanks to a divorce.

Your status will remain divorced until you either re-marry, legally register a sambo status or die - then your status changes to deceased and this is definitely forever.

Sweden does not have a civil status equivalent to single. The closest you can get is ogift = unmarried, and the legal definition for that is equivalent to not-married / never-been-married / never been in registered partnership.

You will continue to be classed as divorced. And they are even kind enough to put onto the personbevis that you have been divorced previously also biggrin.gif

Good to know wink.gif .
Why I wondered is because my ex-husband has married before me and I remember when he printed out his personbevis to send to Skatteverket, his marital status was 'ogift' .

So, that makes me confuse. But, thanks for the information!
