FAQ: I had an Islamic marriage abroad without a civil ceremony in the UK – do I need a divorce?

Posted on: 2 January 2018 by Goodwins Family Law Solicitors

If you have had an Islamic marriage, which has been registered in the country where you married and is legally recognised by that country, the marriage is considered legally binding in the UK and therefore you need to enter into divorce proceedings. If you have had an Islamic marriage only without a civil ceremony in the UK then your marriage is not considered legally binding in the UK.

If you would like to arrange an initial fixed fee consultation regarding your divorce proceedings, you can get in touch with Goodwins Family Law today for a confidential discussion and we’ll be happy to help. Our offices are conveniently based in Harrow, London, with on site car parking and accessible from public transport links. Alternatively, if you are overseas we can arrange a Skype call with you if it is more convenient.
