Help Divorce Between 2 Turkey Citizens I Am British
Posted 16 August 2012 - 04:23 PM
I have 2 children from previous relationship and now have a daughter from this marriage !
Since being married we have only lived with each other for 2 months in which his behaviour is very unpredictable he is very depressed and moody most for the time spending most of his days in bed till the afternoon .
After a month of being married he chose to tell me that he had a brain tumour something that he decided to hide from me before entering mine and my children lives to this day I am unsure as to wether this is true or not.
He is currently in the uk on a family visit visa but life is unbearable with him around.
We have both agreed that divorce is the best option but I need advice as to how to move forward.
He has said that his solicitor in turkey can deal with the divorce on both our behalfs but I don't want to sign over any power to his solicitor on my behalf.
Any advice would be hugely appreciated I also need him out of my house which he says that he will be gone as soon as he finds somewhere but I feel that he is full of lies .

I think you are very sensible not to use his lawyer and have your own. Just remember that what ever was yours before you married remain yours and that would include your house if you own one. I doubt that he will give you any money for support to raise the child you had with him from what you have written.
Not sure what advice to give you really apart from get divorced asap, If there is anything specific you need to know just let us know and we will do our best to help you

Welcome, and sorry to hear about your troubles. A suggestion for finding Turkish lawyers in London -- if you go to almost any Turkish supermarket, you will find free Turkish newspapers (there are at least 6 or so in circulation). They have lots of these lawyers advertised therein, who specialize in all sorts of matters, divorce included. Good luck to you !

I also came across http://www.turkishle...e.com/index.htm but could not find them with the LawSociety but it does not mean they are not a memebr.
I hope that helps you. Good luck

If the Family judge granted him access he would be given a one year visa by UKBA and if he complied with the rules he would be granted Indefinite Leave to Remain at the end of the twelve months.

Edit. I have just answered my own questions and read Paragraph 248A. I think the rules changed as of 9th July and now Appendix FM needs to be complied with as it says
Immigration status requirement
E-LTRPT.3.1. The applicant must not be in the UK-
(a) as a visitor;
( with valid leave granted for a period of 6 months or less;
© on temporary admission

A visitor may apply for an extension to their visa if they can demonstrate a good reason to remain in the UK beyond the six months. If a person has a court hearing set for the future even if they are waiting for a date to be set by the Family Court then the UKBA can grant further leave to remain. The applicant will then no longer be classified as a visitor.and can pursue the access matter in the family court and remain lawfully in the UK.
The applicant would have to be successful in the family court and comply with the immigration rules, very difficult, but not impossible.
It also occurred to me, if Aylawyla2012s husband is here as a family visitor she must have supported his application to come here.

I am a registered lawyer in Turkey, founding partner of the one and only online cheap divorce service for mixed marriages, Turkish Divorce com
I recommend you to divorce in Turkey, since you married in Turkey even if you divorce in UK that degree needs to be registered in Turkey, and you need to apply to courts for that, otherwise you are not deemed as divorced in Turkey, also getting divorce in UK Is far more expensive than getting divorce in Turkey.
You should have your independent attorney, separate from his, otherwise you may face some financial disadvantages, however if he is cooperative and has a lawyer in TR, the only thing you need to do is to appoint a Turkish lawyer for yourself and get an uncontested divorce.
Although the fee for that service is variable, we are the most competitive one amongst all.
If you need further details please contact us.

He has supported us for the last 15 months and money is not an issue as he is financially in a good situation but he is being a bit of an ass and refusung to pay this months rent I guess because he is hurting does anyone know if he would still have to pay maintenance even tho he isnt a citizen here ?
