Good Experience with Turkish Divorce

I think my story will be useful to a lot of people here. I split up from my Turkish husband in 2010. He went back to Turkey and started divorce proceedings there, as we were married there. I received the documents, from Turkey and was so relieved after 2 years we were divorced with no hassle.

This year I sent my divorce documents to the Registry Office in Winchester to give notice of my marriage to my new guy, only to be told there was no decree absolute! I asked my ex for the document and he was not helpful. In desperation I contacted a Turkish Lawyer from turkishdivorce.com to see if she could get the document from the Turkish court where we married.

There is a standard fee of £530, I had no choice but to pay as I couldn't get a marriage licence without it.

To my horror I found out that the divorce was not finalised, we were not divorced. I was so upset and called my ex, who swore that we were and the lawyer was wrong. I cried my eyes out!!

I told my Turkish Lawyer, she was brilliant, she called my ex and told him the facts, he was as shocked as I was.

My Turkish Lawyer, with no extra charge, proceeded to finalise our divorce. She was absolutely brilliant, I cannot thank her enough, it was all sorted in 8 weeks. The procedure isn't completely straight forward....

You need a stamp/seal of apostile from a UK notary public. Basically this is a UK solicitor that specialises in foreign law. This person will check your ID and make a document to legally confirm who you are. This must then be sent to your Turkish Lawyer acting on your behalf. The cost was £130.

She then sorted everything out and sorted it all and sent me the decree absolute. If you want to re-marry in the UK your Turkish decree absolute must be translated by a signed translator. My Turkish Lawyer did that for a further £150, although you can have it done in this country by any translator.

I sent this all to the GRO and was granted my marriage licence. This all happened this year and I'm getting married in 6 weeks. There was a cost but it was so worth it, being in control and having the documents. I was foolish trusting my ex-husband, but that was a lesson learnt too late.

I cannot recommend my Turkish Lawyer enough, her name is Açelya Yılmazer.

A very helpful post methinks.

With that done & dusted I wish you all the very best for the future.

Which must mean that you are not legally married?
