I need some help

Hi,
I am in the final part of a very acrimonious divorce and my ex previously lived in Alanya in Turkey from 1991 to 1997.
She was married out there and told me the marriage was not legal in the uk and we could marry without her gaining a divorce.
Since then I have been advised that this is not the case and my marriage to her would not count if I can prove this marriage.
I have the mans details addresses and an idea of dates I am unable to get out to Alanya due to me being treated for cancer.
I could really do with some help or guidance.
Thanks
Bob

I'm sorry, did your legal team advise you that your marriage doesn't count? Surely it would simply make her a polygamist? Perhaps they mean they can annul the marriage if she lied about her status.

Some Turkish men marry foreign women via an Imam ceremony, some women think it's the equivalent of a church marriage but later find out that it's not actually legally binding in any way. I know of one poor girl who was married by an Imam but later found out her husband had a legal wife and three kids living in another part of Turkey. Perhaps your wife wasn't legally married (the only legal marriage in Turkey is performed by a registrar) she may have been telling the truth. If however she had a registrar marriage she would have to divorce before entering another marriage.

I am unsure how much information is available to the public but if I were you I would contact the Turkish embassy and/or British embassy in Turkey and ask for their assistance in the case.


I hope your treatment goes well, good luck with everything,
Charlotte
