3 years ago I got a Muslim divorce. Two years ago I got a divorce

Customer Question

3 years ago I got a Muslim divorce. Two years ago I got a divorce letter through for an English divorce (a dissolution) from the courts. I never had a registry with him. Don't remember it anyway. Does it mean that a registry took place? What is a divorce in English law? They were going to send the papers to Pakistan where the Muslim marriage took place. Anisha anwar

If the marriage took place in Pakistan then your ex would still have needed a UK divorce if he wished to remarry since the Uk would have recognised your marriage as valid.
The divorce would not have been valid if he
The religious divorce would not have been recognised here if your ex was living here
