Obtaining a fraudulent divorce in Turkey

Dear all

Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of the practice I am about to describe

A Turkish national marries in Turkey a UK national in a sham marriage for the purpose of enabling the Turkish national to gain entry to live and work in the UK. The Turkish national enters the UK and the UK national returns to the UK and both parties have nothing further to do with each other. Some years later, the Turkish national, now of course living in the UK, obtains a divorce from a Turkish court and does so saying to that court that the UK national cannot be found (having returned to the Uk) even though they have tried to make contact with the UK national who is now living in the UK. The Turkish national informs the court that the last known address of the UK national in the UK is an address that is fictitious and has no connection with the UK national whatsoever.


The court having been satisfied that all reasonable attempts have been made to contact the UK national have failed (erroneously believing of course that the address of the UK national is the one it has been told is the correct address by the Turkish national) allows the Turkish national to place an advertisement in a local newspaper thereby giving deemed service of the divorce petition to the UK national and then thereafter, makes an order of divorce.

If anyone has any knowledge of this practice, please let me know.

Andrew

Re: Obtaining a fraudulent divorce in Turkey

I don't have personal experience of what you describe but my Turkish ex husband met several Turks living in the UK who had done what you describe. However they had all lived with their wives in the UK for 3 years so that they became eligible for UK passports, then just walked out and started divorce proceedings in Turkey. I remember him telling me that he met one man who had done this, obtained a divorce whilst still living with his English partner, them re-married a village girl in Turkey.
