Divorce without foreign marriage certificate
January 30, 2022 01:23PM
Hi everyone,

I am looking to apply for a divorce in the UK from my wife. We originally married abroad in 2013, and broke up in 2021. Unfortunately she is a very vindictive and unreasonable individual, and refuses to give me the original marriage certificate and the English translation. I can't obtain a copy as firstly, there is no record of a copy in the UK and secondly I don't have the required Arabic or French skills to go to Morocco and obtain a new certificate. I also have no idea where she lives, so I can't even proceed from that avenue. She did text me on whatsapp two images of the marriage certificate

Is there some way to proceed with divorce without the certificate? I have found this form

[assets.publishing.service.gov.uk]

How long would this process take, and has anyone been through this? I am asking this question as I now have a new partner and would in the next 12 months or so like to get married to them.

The you should be able to get duplicate even if you have to travel to Morocco and/or employ someone there to obtain it for you.

I am in the same boat. I have tried to get in touch with my ex, she does, however, continue to be a control freak. Why is everything about money and cost. A divorce should be automatic after a couple of years living apart!
