Divorce compensation can be material and non-pecuniary. According to Article 174 of the Civil Code; The faultless spouse of the spouse in less fault whose current or expected interests have been damaged by the divorce may seek appropriate financial compensation from the spouse in fault. The party whose personal rights have been attacked due to the events leading to the divorce may request the payment of an appropriate amount of money as moral compensation from the other spouse who is in fault. For example, not allowing the spouse to work or complete his/her education during marriage is grounds for financial compensation. If the events leading to the divorce have severely damaged the personality of the faultless or the spouse in less fault non-pecuniary damages may be awarded. For example, if events such as beatings, ill-treatment and insults.
