Islamic Divorce

We have an adept understanding of Islamic divorce law. We can provide you with our expertise in this area of law.

Firstly, if you have had an Islamic marriage which took place in another country like Pakistan or Saudi Arabia then it is considered legally binding in the UK. Therefore, there is no separate requirement for you to register your marriage again in England as it will be automatically recognised by English law. However, if you enter into a traditional Islamic marriage (“Nikah”) in the UK then the marriage will have to be registered at the Civil Registry in order to be legally binding.

Clients often seek advice and guidance on both the UK legal system as well as the Sharia Council. We can guide you through the process and help you achieve the best results for you and your family. We are able to advise you on the validity of Islamic marriages, with expertise in all the main areas of Islamic law including:

We can help you with a full range of family related legal matters, including:

  • Talaq (divorce pronounced by the husband)
  • Khul’a (divorce pronounced by the wife)
  • Civil divorce through the English Courts
  • Financial settlements – including the Haq Mahr and international assets

We recognise that Islamic divorces often involve an international element. Differences in religious and civil ceremonies exist which can translate into different outcomes. We can advise and guide you with any cross-border issues that may arise. We can offer you legal advice on how to protect yourself financially with our international family law solicitors.

Our aim is to provide you with an efficient and culturally sensitive service. As a result this minimises delay, and therefore a more cost-effective process for you.
