Unhappy duplicate marriage certificate

Hi this is my first post so Hello to you all. I hope to get an answer to my question. I married in Turkey in 2008 to a Turkish man I met while visiting Turkey. He came to UK on a Spouses Visa and has been granted Indefinite Leave to Remain. Our marriage hasn't worked out and I want to divorce him due to his infidelity. He is no longer living with me at the marital home but he has possession of the Marriage Certificate. Can I return to Turkey to get a duplicate and file for divorce? Can anyone tell me how to proceed. He doesn't want a divorce. I would be grateful for any advice.

Re: duplicate marriage certificate

Did you register your marraige with the Uk embassy and recieve a copy of your Uk marraige certificate? If you did this marraige will be registered in the UK registry (i think Southport) and you can request a copy. Or do you mean the form that you would have been able to get at the Nufus office in Turkey...its a Formal something form, you can also get a copy of this by taking your passport and details to a nufus office in Turkey (where did you marry?).
Hope this helps as both are easy to get, obviously the UK one is if your here.
My Uk one had a copy of the Turkish marraige certificate attached so if i was you i'd apply for that first. I will look for the link then add it tomorrow as i'm off to bed!

Re: duplicate marriage certificate

Yes you can come to Turkey and get a copy marriage book from the Nufus Daire in the town you were married.
Have you tried contacting the Turkish Consulate in London? I believe they're hard to get on the phone but they might be able to help without you coming to Turkey.

Re: duplicate marriage certificate

If I were you, after getting a copy of the Turkish wedding certificate I would file for divorce in the UK. The reason I say that even though your Turkish marriage is legal and recognised in the UK if you divorce in Turkey, to make the divorce valid in the UK you would have to get the Turkish divorce recognised in a British court of law. Why that is so I don't understand but that is the way the law is at the moment.

As long as you don't want to marry another Turk or get married in Turkey again you won't need a Turkish divorce. If he want's to remarry he will have to sort it out in Turkey.

Should you file for divorce in Turkey and your husband doesn't want one it could take a long time.

Re: duplicate marriage certificate

Thank you all for the speedy replies. Its the red marriage book that my husband has. I am coming to Turkey with my mum in May. I married in Bodrum so will take my passport and letters from my UK solicitor with me. My husband is telling me "no book no marriage" I know he has the red book but he wont give it to me. I didnt register my marriage in the UK but really want to divorce him. I own my house and am worried that he will try to claim some of it. Things have gone really wrong between us.
