Customer Question

Hi, I recently obtained a Kulah (Islamic Divorce) from my husband and I would like to know if I still need to get a Legal divorce and what would be the best way to obtain it. Also would my kulah have any importance in the divorce procedure. Thanks

Hi I got married in UK

Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
Hi
Then yes you will need to go through with a Legal Divorce if you wish to remarry and have your new marriage recognised in the UK
The process is described here

Your religious divorce will have no relevance to the process.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
