Exequatur case (about divorce)

Carlos and Marie were married in Lima in 2010 and moved to the USA. Carlos did not get accustomed to the USA and Marie wanted to move to Thailand, so the couple decided to divorce. They divorced in the USA and then Carlos moved to Sweden. There Carlos married a Swedish businesswoman. Carlos worked a lot in Sweden and found a good job in a transnational corporation. He was able to save money and decided to buy an apartment in Miraflores, Peru. In January 2018 Carlos was notified by his ex-wife through the Peruvian Court of Justice because Marie was demanding 50% of the apartment due to the community of property regime. Carlos was sure that he was divorced in the USA and that she would not be able to claim anything.

If one does not carry out an Exequatur procedure, one is going to remain married in Peru.
