  1. Hello. I got married in Louisiana in 1973-74. I was then stationed in Turkey with the US Air Force, and my wife came with me. While in Turkey, I found her cheating and filed for divorce through a Turkish lawyer in 1974. Is that divorce recognized in the United States? How can I get a copy of my divorce decree from Turkey? Thank you, Randell Cryer
  2. Hi, I would like to get a divorce from my Turkish Husband (I am a New Zealand Citizen). We have been married for 5 years and we have not been able to make it work. He didn't like living in New Zealand and I couldn't get work in Turkey. We have basically spent the last 2 years living on different sides of the world. We don't have any hate towards each other, just sadness that we couldn't make it work. We've decided that we need to leave each other in order to be happy again as we are both miserable. We are still friends and have agreed to an uncontested divorce. We have no children or p
  3. My Turkish husband wants to return back to Turkey (we currently live in the UK and I plan to stay here) and get a divorce from me. I have no money or assets so I,m not able to use a solicitor.

Im happy to sign any documents that he sends over to the UK but I'm not willing to divorce him at my expense.

  5. I am literally copying and pasting this from another thread I wrote on another forum. I had an experience with Turkish Divorce this year and sharing it will be helpful. I think my story will be useful to a lot of people here. I split up from my Turkish husband in 2010. He went back to Turkey and started divorce proceedings there, as we were married there. I received the documents, from Turkey and was so relieved after 2 years we were divorced with no hassle. This year I sent my divorce documents to the Registry Office in Winchester to give notice of my marriage to my new guy, only to
  6. Hi Am posting to see if anyone has been through anything similar and maybe can offer some advise. Myself and 2 children live in Turkey, we are British with Turkish citizenship. I divorced my husband back in 2015. He is Turkish but lives in the UK He gave me full custody of the children and agreed to pay a certain amount of money a month. The amount to be paid was never documented on the divorce papers.

  9. 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. Hi there, I am in an odd and uncomfortable situation and I need some advice. My wife of 17 years and I are having great difficulty, and she is considering abandoning me and our son (he's 34, from her first marriage, and lives with us, and we get along fine). We were legally married in Istanbul. We still all live in California for now. She is making threats against my assets, saying things like Divorcing, but also saying she would just leave and deny Divorce, but still would get half of all my assets. It's unclear what she actually wants as she doesn't really know herself and we
  11. Hi everyone! I hope someone can help me. I am from uk and married a Turkish man in 2005. After several years living in Turkey we moved to UK to be with my sick father. My husband hated England so returned to Turkey and after a some time said he wanted a divorce to marry someone else. We had been married for approx 8 years at that point.

To cut a very long story short, he has contacted me out of the blue asking for a divorce again. I have said ok agai
