JUDGEMENT OF THE COURT

Based on the materials available in the case file and evidence considered at the court hearing, the Trial Panel considers as follows:

 [1] With reference to application of civil procedure law: In fact, Mrs. Tran Thi P filed for divorce from Mr. Nguyen Duc A with the court when she has lived in Czech Republic. So, this is a marriage and family case involving foreign elements, which is under first instance jurisdiction of the People’s Court of Tuyen Quang Province as prescribed in Clause 3 Article 35 of the Civil Procedure Code.

During the divorce proceedings, Mrs. Tran Thi P submitted a Request for Trial in Absentia, therefore, the court resolves the case in absence of Mrs. Tran Thi P as prescribed in Article 207 (regulation on civil cases with failed reconciliation); Article 238 (regulations on procedures for trial in absence of procedural participants) of the Civil Procedure Code.

 [2] With reference to conjugal relationship: Mrs. Tran Thi P and Mr. Nguyen Duc A had their marriage registered on April 27, 2017 at People’s Committee of Commune N, District S, Tuyen Quang Province on voluntary basis, thus this is a legal marriage. After marriage, while Mr. Duc A has lived in Commune N, District S, Tuyen Quang Province, Mrs. P returned to her parents' house in Commune G, District K, Hung Yen Province. Until June, 2017, Mrs. P went to Czech Republic for business, due to geographical distance, their marriage life was not happy, they have not regularly kept touch with or taken care of each other. They also have had adulterous relationships with others. Deeming that their conflicts are extremely serious, the purpose of marriage is not achieved, thus, it is advisable to accept the divorce petition of Mrs. Tran Thi P.

 [3] With reference to common children: They both confirm that they have no common child and do not request the court to settle.

 [4] With reference to common property and liabilities: They both confirm that they have no common property, do not lend or borrow money so they do not request the court to settle.
