  1. Hi Ken, Thanks for your response. I have decided to stay instead so I won't be able to give you any feedback. Maybe next time. Lol.
  2. I would like to know the procedure for paying an overstay fine at the airport. I would be living from Bodrum going to Istanbul and then to the US. I can not do online check-in so I have to go wait at the counter which sometimes opens only a short time before the flight. I am worried I might miss my flight if I have to wait at the counter, wait at passport control, wait in another area to pay the fine in Bodrum. My layover is 4.5 hours in Istanbul so I would have time. Can someone please enlighten me as to where I will have to do this- Bodrum or Istanbul? And the procedure for it? My overstay i
  3. Thanks for your response. Are you sure about 6 months needing to pass before I can reapply? I will be returning before 6 months has elapsed.
  4. I was in the process of renewing my resident permit when my mom was diagnosed with cancer. I had to leave almost immediately to care for her. I did not have everything ready to submit so I submitted what I had and left Turkey. My application was subsequently rejected. I knew that this was going to happen so I went and got a 15 day travel document. I have been in the US for 6 months which is obviously way longer than 15 days. I am ready to go back- I have my e-visa and ticket. What can I expect when I arrive in Istanbul? Am I going to have to pay some kind of fine for staying out longer than
  5. Thanks for your responses guys. I already know the procedures, the amounts to show, etc to qualify for a resident permit. My question is: If neither myself or my ex husband has the 1608TL/ mo to show, because I am ALWAYS asked to provide a bank statement, can I relocate to the US WITH my children? I am the custodial parent and their father has visitation. Or would I have to leave my children behind?
  6. I have a question burning in my mind that I would love to have answered. I have been living in Turkey since 2010. I came to Turkey married, became separated in 2012 and divorced through the Turkish Family Courts in 2015. I was granted custody of our children, both hold US and Turkish citizenship, with their father having the minimal visitation required by Turkish law. My ex husband has made a right mess of his finances over the years. He does not pay the support outlined in our divorce decree. He also can no longer show the amount of money required for me to meet the financial requirement
  7. Thank you for your response. I certainly meet the criteria you listed above since my ex husband is not supporting me. I have no financial resources or income left in the US either since I have been living in Turkey since 2010. Do you know where I can find an English version of the Turkish Code and/or procedure for enforcing the terms of a divorce decree? Also I have read and have been told that as a foreigner holding only a resident permit I can not apply to the Turkish Bar Association. If I were to do so the next time I went to renew my resident permit I would be denied . I am apparently not
  8. I need to find out how to have the terms of my divorce decree enforced. My ex husband and I were married in the US but divorced through the Turkish Family Court system in 2015. I am specifically interested in knowing if there are resources available for expats who do not have financial means to hire a lawyer. I have resided in Turkey on a RP from 2010 to August of this year. I was in the process of renewing my residence permit when my mother was diagnosed with cancer. I had to leave immediately to care for her as she has no surviving family members living in her area.

  10. My Turkish husband and I will be filing for divorce sometime soon. I am a U.S. citizen. We have two children, both have dual citizenship. Our four year old was born in the U.S. the younger one here in Turkey. I have been told that there is no such thing as joint custody in Turkey only sole. My husband has said that he will give me sole custody of both boys. What I want to know is- when my divorce is finalized can I just up and take my children back to the U.S. to live without their father's consent. I hate it here and feel that my kids are missing out on the joys of being a kid. My husband onl
