This answer was rated:

Hello ma’am just want to ask im married in India is it valid here in UK, i married an indian lady but im holding a portugal passport
Assistant: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any paperwork with the UK government? What country do you live in? What is your citizenship?
Customer: I dont have any steps taken yet im living in chiswick now im holding portugal passport
Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer about this?
Customer: No not yet
Assistant: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: If my marriage in india is valid because i was planning to marry my longtime partner in uk so i can bring her here


Yes, if your marriage is lawful in India, it will be recognised as valid in the UK. You must have followed the correct procedures in India and there is no reason why the marriage would not be allowed in the UK e.g. you are not married to more than one person.

May I help further?
