Disputed divorce implies that one of the spouses files a divorce case because of the conflicts with the other party without having a settlement over the consequences of the divorce. In this type of divorce in Turkey, judge hears the applicant’s claims and collect all the arguments and evidences. Under Turkish divorce law practice, verbal witness statements are at crucial importance for the judgment. In the course of judgment, judge aims to find out which spouse is in fault (if both which one is more) and whose acts lead to a divorce.
