Unhappy They stole my name!!

Yesterday, Sally & myself (as original partners), along with Cengiz & Birol (as new partners), locked the office and set off to Manavgat to complete the transfer of ownership of our company. We fully expected to be back soon after lunchtime.

1st stop: MATSO. Picked up relevant paperwork, no problem.
2nd stop: ACCOUNTANT. Signed and picked up relevant documents needed for notar.
3rd stop: NOTAR. All documents accepted and we sat down to wait until we were called to give signatures and payment.

20 minutes or so later, everything came to a halt. They said the details on my KIMLIK (Turk Citizenship I.D.), were incorrect and I had to take a new Kimlik from the Nfs office.

I've held this Kimlik almost 13 yrs since taking my Citizenship back in 2000.
Name on Kimlik? Margaret Ann Tek

They told me to go take a new Kimlik, as per the name showing on their system, Margaret Ann Philpot.
(John Philpot being Sally's dad. We divorced 25 yrs ago and he actually died back in June of 2007)

Interesting? Totally unbelievable, to say we were shocked, would be the understatement of the decade!

The lady in Noter No6 that was doing the work then gave us the following explanation.
She said there was A NEW LAW, introduced just ONE MONTH ago, whereby ALL femail divorced Turkish Citizens, MUST revert to their original name!!

Even the head Notar himself knew nothing about this 'New Law'. In fact, no other person in the room seemed to know anything about this new law, but she was adamant that I needed my new Kimlik, if they were to complete the transfer of our business!

Off we went to the Nfs.
Same showing on their system. They took my existing Kimlik, gave me a new one and claimed 5.75lira for the priviledge of handing me I.D.name of Philpot.
We returned to the Notar and the initial work for transfer of company was completed.

NOW. Not only am I confused and very angry, but I would like my name back please!! My signature of M.Ann Tek remains acceptable alongside the Kimlik of Margaret Ann Philpot. What's going on here??

I divorced my Turk 8yrs 3mths ago. That's a whole 99 mths. During this time, ALL my documents from our business registration, my bank accounts both business and private, SSK & Bağkur payments, POA's, vehicles, tax returns, speeding fines and everything else relevant to my day-to-day living,has been issued and accepted, via my Margaret Ann Tek Kimlik.

Now, call me stupid if you like. I don't believe the law has been changed.
I DO believe that someone c*cked up somewhere.

Now I need to get my name back.
I'll speak to The British Consul tomorrow morning, let him have his day off today.
Drive up to Kuşadası on Thursday, My ex-hubby and myself will go to Kuşadası Nfs early Friday morning to try and sort this out because, guess what??

I have a Tapu to transfer at Kuşadaı that day. POA all done in my TEK details. Unfortunately, my Kimlik is now Philpot. Will the Tapu manager remember me as having put through 70 or more sales up there as Tek and now not recognise Philpot. He might not have a choice, the paperwork doesn't follow through, does it?

I think I'm heading towards needing a good lawyer, what does anyone else know? ANY advice will be greatfully received!!

Re: They stole my name!!

Thanks for that Norman, I asked for it because I did say ANY advice would be welcome. As I've never had a headache in my life, I don't intend to start popping pills now.

However, a large whisky or two, along with some constructive advice, might just come in handy.

Yet you couldn't have researched 'soyadı kanun 2011' or 'soyadı mahkeme kararı 2011'.

Re: They stole my name!!

I guess you have dual nationality, but I would be surprised if the British Consul would get involved over a matter that does not relate to your British status. This is a matter for the Turkish authorities, I think he will say.

Please, Get real and get a life!!

I'm not moaning, I'm telling exactly what happened. I've always said ''It's no fun if it's too easy''. This is obviously not setting out to be easy, however I assure you I WILL get to the bottom of it one way or another and maybe it could stand other divorced Turkish or Dual Nationality women in good stead if they find themselves in a similar position.

Why do you always have to have a go? If you can't contribute something useful, or even comic, better you say nothing!
