  1. Hi... Sorry I've not been on for a while, to be honest I've just been trying to move on with things and just forget about my Husband threatening to Divorce me from Turkey, but his Girlfriend seams to have other ideas... I've received a message today where she's boasting about my Husbands Divorce from me becoming final as of Tomorrow (Monday 14th October) I have not received any Divorce papers from Turkey, and it seems, if it is true that he's managed to Divorce me without my consent, and without my knowledge... he certainly has had no grounds to Divorce me on so what ever has been entered into any Divorce papers will be all lies... because I have not received any Divorce petition from Turkey I have not been able to see what he's supposed to have Divorced me on.... but anything I would NOT have given my consent.. I've explained the Turkish Divorce laws to his girlfriend and said that any Divorce without my consent would not be legal as far as I'm concerned, I told her I have not received any Divorce petition to my UK address.... I also told her that UK don't recognise a Turkish Divorce and as such I still would be married to him under Uk law, which means he is not free to marry another UK Citizen (her) only that he can marry another Turkish woman... She's answered saying that I'm wrong in my knowledge of Turkish divorce (but not in so nice words that I have just written) and been boasting that she will be marrying my Husband on New Years Eve this yr.... and will then happily send me all the photo's.. If any Lawyer can advise please... Is there anyway I can check in Turkey that my Husband has Divorced me without my consent....
  2. Hello... I'm hoping one of our Turkish Attorney members can help me here with some advice... but any advise is welcome I married my Turkish Husband in Turkey 2004... we moved to UK 2006 and the marriage was recognised here...we have lived together in both Turkey and the Uk throughout our marriage.. We have recently separated Dec 2012 and I withdrew my sponsorship of his Limited to remain visa Feb 2013 (I never applied for Indefinite visa for my Husband) but also his visa expired anyway 9th March 20013.. so he was living here after this time illegally with his new English girlfriend... I reported him to Immigration and he was aware they were looking for him so he has now returned back to Turkey 6th June 2013 with his new girlfriend.. He is trying to Divorce me from Turkey and I have been sent a message from his girlfriend to say,, they have seen a solicitor in Bodrum and a date has been set for the Divorce, if I don't attend the court on this day then they make another date and if I don't attend the second date then the marriage will be dissolved there and then.. I have not received any paperwork from my Husband solicitor in Bodrum (if it even true they have seen one) for me to give or not give my consent to the marriage.... I have advised my Husband's new girlfriend that on no account will the marriage be dissolved even if I don't attend the hearing because I do not give my consent... I advised my Husband has absolutely no grounds to Divorce me on and I would not consent to any of his lies... where as I have a list as long as your arm for me to Divorce my Husband on... My concern here is that I have been told that my Husband was trying to start a Divorce in an illegal way.. by asking his girlfriend to act as me (His wife) and to forge my signature to make Divorce... I can not for one minute think that the court would accept any Divorce petition without our Marriage book (which I have here in the UK) and a copy of my passport .... I am also concerned that if I was to give permission to make Divorce in Turkey that here in the UK I am still legally married and as such can not re-marry..... it's my understanding that UK law does not recognise a Turkish Divorce.. so I would not be able to register the Divorce here... I am aware though that if I was to Divorce here in the UK first, my Husband can then take the Decree absolute, have it translated and notarized and then register the UK Divorce in Turkey, and this is a lot less complicated... I want to make the Divorce in my best interest and not make any favour for my Husband so he can then re-marry his new girlfriend so she can then apply for new visa to come back to UK... One major problem I have is the costs incurred from starting a Divorce here in the Uk.. I have no money and have been left with at least £8,000 debt which was incurred during the start of our marriage when we were first living in Turkey together... Can someone please advise my best route...
  3. Yes me too many congrats to you both......... I cant think of anyone who deserves it more than you sue you have been a tower of strength and determination through your illness....... hes a lucky guy...... and your a lucky girl...
  4. Hi IngalillWelcome to the forumI cant comment on the way your marriage was conducted and that you were never asked about whether you wanted to take your Husbands name after marriage as thats what is usually done in the Uk and when I married my Turkish Hubby here in Turkey......... We had to sign our names (mine was previous surname) and on the marriage book it states my birth surname and my past married surname and my new surname so that when using the book to register changes like on passport or driving license etc they can see the link from my past surnames to this one.... I would have thought you would also have to have the change of names on your marriage certificate to prove why you have changed your surname, like I say when using the certificate to change your surname (which the authority's ask for your marriage certificate when you advise your name was changed through marriage) on important papers like the Bank account wanted to see my marriage certificate because it shows why my name was changed and that it was changed legaly... How you would go about changing your name now you are married I'm sorry I have no idea.... what about getting in touch with the registrar office you were married at to ask what the procedure is.....and why you were never even asked about name change.....
  5. Great news everything went so well.....
  6. Hi ChopsThats the bit I'm not sure how to go about........ I'm guessing but you would probably need to submit your translated papers via a solicitor.... but dont quote me.. Can you not send Mrs Lawyer a PM from this forum....ask how how you go about getting the divorce recognized here in turkey and that you have all the papers translated ready....sorry I cant be more help.... trouble is I dont know anyone who has been through this process...
  7. Hi Chops What Siren said is correct İF your b/f and his first wife had not initiated a Divorce in the Uk first.....he would have opened a case here in Turkey, served the papers to his ex in Uk and taken it from there....... In your case because they Divorced over 2yrs ago in the Uk ..... he now can do as sunnys post said from Mrs Lawyer You may get your divorce decree recognized here in Turkey. In other words, you do not need to open a divorce case in Turkey. I really could not understand why you started an action here. He has already divorced! 'Recognition of a decision given by an English court related to marriage and divorce can be registered in Turkey. By the principals of
  8. Cant imagine why you didn't inquire about boob jobs cukur. .... I'll send Karyn a pm as her link is about cosmetic dentistry.........something else I would like to have done.... Thanks guys....
  9. oh Cukur how wonderful for you.... yes you must be really excited but at the same time slightly nervous, anyone would be..... but the outcome .... it never ceases to amaze me what can be done yr after yr regards medical treatments.. Just think in a couple weeks you will open your eyes and be able to see everything clearly without having to reach for your glasses.... technology ehSadly for a few yrs now my eyes have deteriorated for reading.... its such a pain having to reach for my glasses before I can read the instructions on the pkt.... Just out of curiosty... does the Hospital at Antalya do plastic Surgery.... I'm thinking of a possible boob lift and tummy tuck........ Why will I possibly do it.... because I can
  10. ohhh Cukur I'm drooling..... it looks lovely, I miss scones with fresh cream and jam....they were also my Hubby's favorite sweet pastry back in UK.... Your so lucky to have real milk and so able to make real fresh cream........ Yes I too wish I lived nearer, mind you ....dont think you'd appreciate it if I did, you'd never have any buns and cakes left and the tea pot would be on constantly.... I made some Victoria Scones a couple of weeks ago, I offered one to Hubby and said they taste just like the scones we used to get in UK but sorry no cream or jam.......... he bloody refused cos there was no cream and jam.... I"ve bought some stuff as I"m going to attempt making a cheese cake............. I have a brilliant Recipe that never fails but it contains carnation Milk (which you cant get here) so this is a new one for me to try.... I'll let you know how it goes...........scoobydoo that recipe looks nice..... I like oat biscuit and coconut so I should really like these.... I'll get some stuff then attempt to make them... Wish I had some of curkur's fresh cream
  11. I really don't understand what their trying to achieve here.... Not only are the cars twice as much just about as in the UK but now you have the added expense of the Resident permit and a Turkish driving licence.... this is going to cause a lot of stress for people now having to do all the running around trying to sort both out.... Turks who live in UK don't need a permanent visa or an English driving license to own a car... so why are we being penalized for everything because we just want to live here.... I've no doubt some people wont bother with cars now ..... so thats a loss to the country as not so many cars will be bought... why do they always cut their nose's off to spite their faces..... By the way do you know if it applies to scooters/Motorbikes .....
  12. Whiterose...... don't think of it like that 'an insult to our wedding' ....... its paperwork thats all... means to an end... When I married the first time in UK.... my Husband had been married before but I wanted to marry in Church.... in UK they don't (or didn't) allow divorc
  13. I really feel for you and I'm sorry I cant help with your situation.... But has for getting married again here in Turkey ........ would you actually be able to do that........ are you not already married...... wouldn't that be bigamy (although your marrying the same woman) if you are allowed to marry in Turkey........ then that clearly says your marriage is not legal at all........ Honestly if thats the case.... and you can marry in Turkey... I think that would be the easiest option and quickest... its a means to an end....
  14. Hi Jasmine I found this info from the UKBA web site, I haven't copied everything but I have given you the link.... you should read the info as it tells you what the criteria is for to be able to apply... http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/partners...scivilpartners/ If you are currently outside the UK If you are subject to immigration control and you are married to or in a civil partnership with a British citizen or person who is settled here, you can apply for permission to come to the UK in this category. Your husband, wife or civil partner must be at least 21 years old (or 18 years old if you or they are a serving member of HM Forces), and must be: ■currently living and settled in the UK; or ■returning to the UK with you to live here permanently. As you can see, the bit I highlighted does state either UK citizen OR settled in UK (which you are) you along with everyone else in this situation will have to show your settled, show your rent or mortgage agreement and also provide enough financial evidence to prove you can support both your self and your Husband if he were to be granted the visa...
  15. Hi Sue..... I'm afraid with Turkey not being part of EU things are much different.... for him to even have a dutch passport he must first become Dutch Citizen..... after which time he would probably be able to use his dutch passport to gain entry into UK (but I'm not 100% sure on this as he first Turkish Citizen) Hi Jasmin.... I too cannot really help regarding getting your Husband (when you are legally married) a 2 year settlement visa for UK.... as like you say although you have been living in the UK for past 10yr you are still Dutch Citizen...... if you don't have UK passport you are not UK citizen..... so maybe the rules are different.... hopefully sirin will come along and be able to help....
