Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you
If you were legally married in St Lucia then your marriage is recognised here in the Uk and there is no need for any formal notification of the UK authorities
Accordingly you will need to go through a divorce here in the Uk should you wish to remarry in the future.
The process is exactly the same as if you had been married in the Uk
Please ask if you need further details
