Selam!


So to keep this as short as possible.... Married my (ex) Husband in Istanbul (at Esenler Belediyesi)

Came back to USA 3 days later. We had many problems due to his controlling insecure behavior (he wanted me to be his slave and do everything he said, always telling me what to do and etc.) Anyway it ultimately ended when he became outraged that I "liked" another mans photo on Instagram. He then abandoned me completely and disappeared for 3 mos. leaving me jobless having just returned to states and basically lost everything because he was supposed to pay the bills until I found a job again. Anyway....

The divorce should be finalized soon here in the USA.... but I am wondering

Do I still have to be sure that I am also divorced in Istanbul? I have the red book, all papers etc.

He is extremely bitter and angry that I am divorcing him and is no help what so ever (big surprise huh)

If anyone can offer up any advice or info I would really appreciate it. Cok Tesekkurler!

-Mia

I had a similar (though much less frustrating) situation. I was married in Istanbul and divorced in US. I was told that it would be possible to have my US divorce certified in Turkey, but it would take a long time and be very expensive--they require translations of documents, etc. My ex-husband and I (we were on amicable terms) decided to just get divorced a second time again in Turkey. I can refer you to a Turkish lawyer if you need additional assistance. Without your (ex-)husband's cooperation, it will be more difficult, but not impossible.

My boyfriend is Turkish and he was married and living to a girl from the Netherlands. Their divorced there but not divorced in turkey. He wants to get the divorced recognised in turkey as we want to marry next year. His ex will not send him any papers as she knows he wants to remarry. He's living in turkey and not free to travel. Can his lawlor or anyone else help him get the divorce in turkey if he's ex won't help. Thank you
