  1. Hi Hi! I'm almost "desperate" to get some info about Turkish divorce cases. I'm from Holland and I'm in a relationship with a Turkish man for 2 years. I do live in Turkey, but not with him. My boyfriend was married for a couple of years and his marriage didn't work out and he filed for divorce. This divorce is going on for 2 years now and we have to keep our relationship a secret. I hate this so much, because I love him and I know it's also very hard for him. My boyfriend has a child with his wife and she very small (3 years old). He told me that the judge changed and this delayed his case. What i understand from him is that it can take 1 more year.. I'm devastated about this, that's why I want to learn more about the Turkish divorce system. Because in Holland it's so different.
  2. George in Alanya Prison

    About 6 weeks ago my good friend George - real name Mehmet - had a lot of cash on him and he was robbed but he took out a knife and stabbed the guy. There were many witnesses to this and it seems it was self-defence although of course carrying that knife was illegal. The stabbed guy went to hospital but was only there a few days and is now ok and back at his home. George, however, is in Alanya Prison and must stay there for 2 years. All prisoners in Turkey can only nominate up to 3 people to visit them in jail. It can be friends or family or a mixture of the two. All George's relatives are in Istanbul, so he nominated them sadly, so nobody in Side can visit him. Sukru Ozen has been to the prison twice to try and see George who is a tour operator and Sukru is his business partner, but to no avail. He was denied access. I understand, however, that there is just one day each year when anyone can visit Alanya Prison but I am having trouble finding out when that might be. Could anybody put me in the right direction please? I have written to George twice since he went to prison but as yet have heard nothing. I suppose he is not permitted to use the phone or emails but may be able to write a letter? I do hope I hear from him soon. I have known George for 12 years and he has never shown any signs of anger - not even raised his voice to anyone - so I am shocked at this revelation. He is 40 years old and single. He had a long term girlfriend but she sadly died in a car crash 12 years ago. He does not chat up the tourists or go to the Russian prostitutes here in Side but says he is just waiting for The One. I feel so very sorry for him. Any help anyone can give me would be gratefully received. Thank you. x Angela in Side x
  3. Question Regarding Inheritance

    Hello. I need a little help legal advice and help.I married a Turkish man here in the USA. He told me before he died that he wanted our daughter who was born here in the USA his house in Izmir.I don't know how much properties he had and money but his sister seems to want to take this from my daughter.She never wanted my daughter to come to Turkey and they seem very distant. I also believe she is influencing her mom not to love my daughter . He never wrote anything in writing before he died.One time i said we were going to come there and she took the baba anne from the house so my daughter doesn't see her and put her in her house to live. I thought it was odd.I need to find out how much properties and money he had. How can i do this. I am very poor and need this help .

Half his wages. 1/4 for alimony and 1/4 for the lawyer his wife got. 2 years before. I didn't know until my 2nd return that he had also borrowed from a credit bank pronunced guarantee in English. He got 10,000 tl. 7 months ago. Never made 5 payments and they got a lawyer to get the money back. After interest was now 30,000 tl. To be taken from his wages for 10 years. Leaving him just 300tl?????? Can this be true. I want to believe him but he has no evidence on paper. I asked him does he have a book from the credit bank. He said he lost it.

  5. WORK PERMIT ?

    Please, I know in a sense that this question is already asked, inhere, but there's no clear answer. My question ,precisely, in a case that an online Business is opened and products will be destinated to Export ; so it will not be destinated to the Turkish Market and money will be received in Turkey as the Residence will be there. WORK PERMIT IS NECESSARY OR NOT ? Also, I heard this but it seems not to be logical: As you're not Turkish and you open a business online even with Turkish Market; it's not necessary to have WORK MARKET?!! Someone has a clarifications about this and may be a lawyer has a precise answer with updates , Thanks,
  6. Hi everyone/anyone. I am looking for a good English speaking lawyer/avucat in the Dalaman/Dalyan/Ortaca or Koycegiz area. I have a neighbour dispute going on over the land I bought near Ortaca last year. My appointed avucat did not mention any such dispute during the buying process at the time, so I am of course very disappointed about it and need someone professional and trustworthy. I hope that is not too much to ask, because I don't speak turkish apart from a few words and phrases, and I really need some help to sort this problem out.
  7. Divorce

    I wonder if anyone could advise me on an ongoing case. I am English and so is my wife, I owned a property in the UK before we got married there sold and used to buy a villa in Turkey. The villa and also a car are both registered in my name only as I provided the money from the UK sale to purchase both. My wife has cleared our joint accounts and has left Turkey and filed for divorce. Where do I stand with regards to seperating assets if all the money was mine before marriage? She has filed for the house, car and 100,000tl compensation due to her upset. Your advise would be appreciated.

  9. Hello, I am an experienced LSAT tutor now located in Bulgaria and ready to support LSAT students in Turkey. I have been teaching students previously in Asia for nearly 10 years. The classes can be online and in person (in Istanbul), or a blend of the two. I often teach purely online, and it works quite well for the students. In addition, the price is lower than many other courses (15 hours for $600 dollars, 15 hours is a quick course and 30 hours is a full course). I have a system that helps students get focused directly on the challenge of the exam. After 2-3 classes you will be doing practice tests and will be able to independently analyze the wrong answers and understand what error was made, at least for most of the questions in Logical Reasoning section. For the other two sections one class is enough to get you going, knowing what you should do and how to do it. Of course the process takes some time to improve, as it really is a difficult test, but finally you will understand all of the questions, meaning why the right answer is correct, as well as how to manage the testing process. For Reading Comprehension and Logical Games, I have special processes to help students know exactly what they should do to manage the information and be able to answer the questions correctly. I have been working with students who are not native English speakers, so I understand the special challenge these students face. I also help students with their J.D. and LL.M. applications for US law schools. Please contact me at attyjohnston (at) yahoo.com for more information. My websites are www.rayxi.com and www.rayxilawforums.com
  10. Spurious demand for payment

    Hello We have received a puzzling letter (ilamsız takiplerde ödeme emri) and we don't know what to do. Some years ago a friend of my partner who owned a rent a car company used to lend him a car from time to time as a favour. My partner then fell out with his friend and we lost contact. Now 4 years later we receive a letter which seems to be claiming that we (both of us although I have never driven here) rented a car from this guy's company for 3 years and never paid for it. Do we ignore this as complete rubbish or should we answer and to whom? Do we need legal assistance? Is there a standardised form to reply that this is without substance and completely fabricated? The sum requested is over 57000 TL... I would appreciate your advice on this as we are a bit perplexed. Thank you in advance

  12. Criminal Record Checks in Turkey Each provincial capital, and some smaller cities and towns, have a law building, called an adalet sarayı, (literally translated "justice palace") or adliye. This building contains most of the local government legal offices, and court rooms. And it contains the office where you need to go to get your criminal record. In some smaller cities and towns, the office you need may be in the emniyet müdürlüğü, (security directorate), which is kind of a main police station. In the adalet sarayı or emniyet müdürlüğü, look for a placard (usually just inside the entrance) which says "Sabıka Kaydı," or criminal record, or ask the guard where this office is. Give the clerk your passport and your current residence permit. If it's for a residence permit, tell him "ikamet." It might take 15 or 20 minutes for them to produce the paper. Criminal records checks for residence permits are free, but for other reasons, like for a driving license, you will need to pay a small fee. Either there will be a fee-payment window or desk in the same room, or you will need to go to the vezne (cashier) in the same building to pay this fee bring the fee receipt back to the clerk, who will give you your criminal record check document. Criminal Record Checks in Other Countries If you have been living in Turkey for less than five years, you may be asked for a criminal record check document from your home country. Even if you have lived in Turkey for more than five years, you may still be asked to provide one. Each country (and each state in the USA) has different procedures for obtaining a criminal record check. The best way to learn the procedure is to find the main government website and search if for "criminal record." To be sure you are on the official website, make sure it has a ".gov" in the suffix, such as "www.arizona.gov" or "www.gov.uk." Note: Criminal records checks from other countries can take a long time to be processed and mailed to you. It is a good idea to apply for one as early as possible. The Apostille, or Legalization of the Criminal Record For official records from other countries, such as criminal record checks, the Turkish government requires an apostille. An Apostille is a separate document which certifies that the document actually came from the government office which issued it. You cannot get a document apostilled at an embassy or consulate in Turkey. It must be done in the country from which you are getting the document. Some governments offer an apostille service in addition to providing the document, just by paying an additional fee. This is ideal, since the document can be created, apostilled, then sent to you with the least expense in time and money. You can find out if your government offers the service on their website. Some governments, including state governments in the USA, don't offer an apostille service. This will require you go employ a private, government-certified apostille company. Translation Once you receive the apostilled criminal record check, it must be translated by an official, sworn Turkish translator. Then the translation must be notarized. What To Do if Your Government Doesn't Provide the Apostille Typically, this will involve the government office sending the criminal record check to you in Turkey, then you sending it to an apostille service, then them providing the apostille and sending it back to you. But there may be an easier and cheaper way. Use a search engine to find a certified company which can provide apostilles. Simply search using a phrase like "arizona apostille," substituting "arizona" for the place where the government office is which will be providing your criminal record check. Contact them to see if you can have the government office send the document directly to them. Then ask the government office who will be providing your criminal record check to send the document to the apostille service. This way, you can save the expense of sending the document to Turkey twice. State Governments in the USA May Require Your Presence Some US state governments will require you to submit a fingerprint card before they do a criminal record check. If that is the case, you will have to physically go there and submit your fingerprints in person. Unfortunately, this can't be done at the US embassy or any consulate in Turkey. Contact your state government officials to learn their procedure. Questions or Comments?

  14. Moving abroad before army

    Hi my fiancée and I have been together for 4 years. He's turkish and I'm British and he's coming 21 years of age. He has delayed the army for a few years due to his mums health and is due to go in, in 2017. We're quite happy to do this however, several of his family members have said if I got a lawyer on the English side he will have a chance to come into the country before he does his army service and we would be able to buy out of it after 3 years... Does anyone know the possibility or risks of this? Before we pay out for help and end up with nothing. This would be so much better for us if possible as my father is ill and it would be a chance to get to know each other before he passes and also be able to start a family. If not we will continue on with our original plan.
  15. Fantastic site and wisdom in the postings. It is great to have found and this problem i feel crosses many more ages than just those under 29. I have a question about military service, etc. in the Turkish army. If someone has been in the military for years, I believe as a career, is older, as in 55 years old; is it feasible or possible or any type of truth to the fact, that if they have violated some military rule (i don't know what else to call it other than a rule) - is it possible that this person could be thrown into jail and maybe in jail for life. And I believe they were only guilty of talking to someone on social media when they were in a military camp. How serious would the breaking of this rule be with the Turkish army, or maybe it is not even a problem at all. I am not accustomed to the army in Turkey and am more familiar with USA and Canadian military where such things would not happen. However, neither one of the North American countries has a forced military service either. Another question related to the previous concern. If someone did have to deal with such an issue, would they be required to hire a lawyer to help them in such an action. Thank you to any and all for assistance on this.
  16. I am writing this article with the request of a friend who simply wants me to be more active in the Turkey Central. I do not follow the questions often regrettably so by writing such article hopefully I would contribute a little more, If and if you have more questions, you are always welcome to ask any of your questions over whatsapp +905079767304 This article aims to clarify the matters concerning separation and divorce in relation with Turkish family law. The article touched on the procedures of divorce and also grounds of divorce in Turkey to tell you what you will be faced of with this important decision. Types of Divorce 1. Contentious Divorce Suit One of the spouse may bring a case to the court in order to end the martial relationship. The divorce suits are examined by the Court of Family (Aile Mahkemesi) which has exclusive jurisdiction related to divorcement. The suits must be brought to the court where spouses resided last 6 months or the court situates where the domicile of the applicant is. There are 2 main type of grounds (General or Specific) to divorce which are explicitly mentioned in Turkish family law. A) General grounds: High-conflict divorce Specific grounds: Such as Adultery, Plots against life, grave assaults and insults, crime and dishonarable life, desertion, mental illness. As ordinary contentious suits, spouses should convince the court concerning their rightness and other’s mistake or faults. This Divorce Process considerably stressful and could take over two years in respect to the circumstances carried and requires to be investigated by the court. We apply this process either one party refuses to divorce or when parties can not be agreed at children custody, separation of goods, alimony, or compensanation. Also at this process we need to prove our claim and The party who claims to the divorce suit has to have "righteous reason" and has to prove it, as an instance, if there is a cheating issue, the part that cheats do not have right to ask for a divorce and his/her claim will be rejected. We can give many different examples but court will evaluate all circumstances meanwhile the process continues. Also It is why we generally proceed general grounds, not specific grounds such as cheating, or leaving the house To submit evidences for a high conflict We generally need reasons such as humiliation, assault, irresponsibility, fight, violence, irresponsibility against children, abuse, cheating, also if its necessary claiming other part is ineffective to maintain husband-wife private life. Still its really stresfull and more likely a very hurtfull emotional war, What happens if you are having another life and your wife/ your separeted husband does not want to divorce? In such cases we generally try to prove the other party is the party who is "guilty" Our courts are very strict about loyalty indeed, but if the other party left the house, and did not answered a return call, if this process took years and if you have a new life than court could accept the other party "guilty" So its better to take step to get divorced before establishing a new life always. Can you claim a suit by claiming you have been separeted? Unfortunately separation is not accepted as only reason, to claim a suit with the reason of a separation 1. You must have a previous, divorce case rejected in front of the court. And from this decision you have never come together as husband&wife for 3 years and you need to prove it. What happens to children Custody ? The court will decide it, Our laws does not allow common custody, so the custody will be given either mother or father, But %90 Turkish Courts gives custody to the mother. What happens to the separation of the goods? In our laws after 2002 "if spouses does not sign an specific agreement that declares goods will be separated before or meanwhile the marriage" All goods purchased meanwhile the marriage ( not before, Not any good inherited or being donated before or in the marriage, not the personal jewelers or goods accepted to be personal) accepted as common proprietorship. BUT, the separation of the goods issue only could accept as a claim when the DIVORCE DECREE CERTINIFIED. We most of the time ask both divorce and separation of goods, but for example at the beginning of the divorce case you were angry and just want it to let it go, you have right to claim it as a separate case after divorce decision certinified in a 1 year period. ALSO despite of the common knowledge, parties are not entitled the half of everything owed together. The court will calculate the pertange, regarding the amount you pay for them. Now you can ask a question, what if I do not work but my husband does? In Such circumstances, the court will calculate your pertange over the minimum wage. Compensation& Alimony The party who has been abused, being cheated, insulted, violated or any how damaged either emotionally or monetary, could ask a compensation with the case. Alimony, is given to children, and women generally, I do not have sample that a man receives alimony. The court will check parties financial situation at decision, sometimes couples hides ownings or jobs or its shown at minimum wage, so you need the prove your husbands income to get a good amount of alimony other wise its generally given 100-200 Usd per child These are main questions but if you have more you can ask directly. 2. Uncontested Divorce (Consensual Divorce) One of the spouse may apply to the court by submitting separation agreement and property settlement concluded among them. If none of objection will arise, spouses could be divorced in accordance with the provisions of the separation agreement and property settlement with consensus. To get divorce by Uncontested divorce process, You need to agreed 1. Children Custody 2. Separation of goods 3. Alimony 4. Compensation, If you come to agreement this issues, you can be divorced in 10 days and be free. 3. Judicial Separation The spouse who has right to bring a divorce case may demand judicial separation. The judge may also order judicial separation if there is a possibility that the spouses could live together in the future. Judicial seperation may be obtained on almost on the same grounds of divorce and the court relieves the petitioning spouse from the duty of cohabitation. 4. Recognigation of Foreing Divorce Decree if you already divorced in another country regarding to the receiprocity and mutual international agreements the decision could be recognised in Turkey. But if you have such intention, please be carefull that, the decison taken from abroad should be given by the court, and signed by a judge, and no common custody given. The Consequences of Divorce There are many legal consequences of divorce. Some of them are personal in nature: The wife will have her own independent domicile, while the both spouses keep the majority acquired by marriage. The wife resumes maiden name. She may however keep the family name of the husband if she convince the court that it will not damage to her husband. She can also preserve the nationality which has acquired during the marriage. Also the court can decide alimony to the spouse for indefinite time period. Unlike USA, there is no joint custody in Turkey, therefore custody must be granted to one of the spouse which is convenient for custody of the child.

  19. Law in Turkey

    Hey, I'm going to need some guidance! I am a Turkish Citizen, born and raised in the UK (dual citizenship!) I have finally decided to take the plunge and move to Turkey after I get married (December 2015). I am wondering how I would be able to practice Law in Turkey?? I have completed my Law degree and will complete my LPC by July. A solicitor I spoke to in Turkey mentioned that I may have to do some extra courses in Turkey or do a conversion course - which sounds fine by me. Does anyone have any information about what steps I have to take to practice Law in Turkey? Also how I can go about with my plans - where I can apply, the requirements necessary in the application ect. My other option is convincing my fiancee to move to the UK, however his argument is that he has started his career whereas I haven't and could start it in Turkey. Which I can understand! All advice/information will be greatly appreciated! Ps. I am fluent in Turkish! (so no language barriers thankfully) Mella

He has his son with him once a month for weekend he is 7 now. I know he is sharing his apparment and was wondering what are the rules for that? I mean can kids sleep together on one bed or with dad or what kind of facilities he has to have for ti have children overnight? Now i know him well enough to know that he will lie and cheat to prove he lives alone.My other question is how can i prevent the holiday metter? She never been to turkey never met his family and never ever been away from me overnight. I find somewhere that he can get her turkish passport without my knowledge is that true? And is it going to be in his favor that he travels with his son and always came back? I know he said he dont want get turkish citizen fir his son because of the army. But if the court says he can take her for holidays and he will go with 2 his kids what are my chances he will come back? He lives in ireland over 10 years and works but i know he strugle financially.is there anything for me to use in court to stop him from taking her?I know its too many questions but thanks in advance
  21. Hi, my boyfriend and I are looking for a flat we can share, I will live there when I am in Turkey. He works in Kemer, so we are looking at flats in Kemer or in the nearby area. Usually people rent for a season or a year. I am fine with commiting myself to that. We discovered in additon that the renting market seem to prefer that you pay rent for a WHOLE year in ADVANCE. I have never before heard of such a way of doing it! I don't have any savings, and neither does he, so to make this happen I will have to take up a loan, credit card or similar. We are trying to find something that does not require us to pay so much in advance, but rather allows us to pay a monthly rent (I can mange 3 months deposit) and electricity. I wonder if anyone has heard of this practice? In addition to the economical strain, I fear that we would have few rights if they wanted us to move out for some reason.
  22. Hello Friends, Here is the latest update on the residency permit issue we have all been wondering about., "The government in year 2014 extends the residence permit from three months to one year for house buyers from oversees with a law change, aiming to eliminate obstacles in front of the foreign buyers.Residence permits for foreigners that buy real estate in Turkey will be extended from three months to one year, according to an announcement in the Official Gazette.Foreigners who buy real estate in Turkey are allowed to obtain residence permits of one year at most, according to new legislation on the Law of Foreigners and International Protection. Basically, the prodecure is that ....after you have an official T.C. tapu, you go back to your country and make the application at the Turkish Embassy who will grant you the one-year residency permit. Also, the residency permit gets renewed every year... Hope this helps.. Cheers
  23. The provisions of the Law on Mediation in Civil Disputes (Law No. 6325) (published in the Official Gazette dated June 22, 2012 and numbered 28331) (“LMCD”) shall enter into force one year following its publication in the Official Gazette, on June 22, 2013. The Regulation on the LMCD (“Regulation”) was published in the Official Gazette dated January 26, 2013 and numbered 28540 and shall enter into force on the same date as the LMCD. The LMCD regulates mediation in Turkish civil law for the first time. In that regard, Article 1 of the LMCD stipulates that mediation shall be applied only in the resolution of private law conflicts, including those having a foreign element, arising from acts or transactions of interested parties who have the capacity to settle such conflicts. The preamble to the LMCD states that it aims to regulate the procedures and principles for resolving conflicts without applying to Courts. Under the LMCD and the Regulation, mediation is defined as “a method of voluntary dispute resolution system carried out with the intervention of an impartial and independent third party; who is specially trained to convene the relevant parties by way of systemic techniques and with a view to help such parties mutually understand and reach a resolution through a process of communication”. According to the LMCD, a “Mediator” must fulfil the following conditions: (a) being a Turkish citizen; ( being graduated from a Law faculty and having at least five years of professional experience; © being fully capable; (d) having no criminal record for having committed an intentional crime; and (e) having completed mediation training course and passed the written and practical exam administered by the Ministry of Justice. The persons fulfilling these conditions may act as mediators by registration to the Mediators’ Registry and may commence their services from the date of registration. The main purpose of such a concept is to arrive at a more expedited solution of the disputes simply and easily through mediation, a form of alternative dispute resolution.
  24. Hi th I am new to your Forum, I have an urgent problem, we had a villa in Turkey until a few days ago, we made an agreement with an agent to sell to him, he took us to the Notary Office and we signed documents there for him to sell our property at "any price" after we had done this we were very concerned about the inclusion of the "at any price" we went back to the Notary office on our own and we spoke with them and they said we could cancel this agreement to give Power of Attorney to the agent we asked if they needed this and they said not while we were still in the country he would only need this power of attorney if we were leaving and wanted him to act on our behalf, the Notary cancelled the agreement to give Power of Attorney to him, he had promised to give us a deposit but two weeks later we still had no deposit but he said he would have the money soon for us, he is also saying that we signed a contract in his office which states that if we back out we owe him £10,000.00 and vice versa if they back out, however he did ask us to sign this which was on a white piece of A4 paper not a letter headed paper with the name of the company but we declined to do this he put the date of sale on this as 25th June two days before we were due to return home. However as he was not forthcoming with a deposit we felt that he was going to back out we did try to speak about this but he kept saying he would have the full money soon for us. In the end we had another offer on our villa and we accepted this, we did tell him we had another offer and asked if he could give us a deposit or the full purchase price he kept saying he would have full money soon not to worry, another few days passed and the other interested party had the money ready to give us, we had to return to England earlier than our intended date and so we sold to the other people, we went into try to see the other agent to let him know but they said he was off somewhere on business, We did everything legal with the purchasers signing the Tapu over etc at the Tapu Office. As soon as the first agent realised we had had to go home early and had sold to someone else, he started phoning us and texting and with each text the threats became worse, he is still texting us now. Three days later. He says we had an agreement, he says we signed the contract in his office which we most certainly did not, the one which he showed us and was on an A4 piece of paper, he has sent a copy of this via email to me, showing our signatures, Now we did not sign this he had copies of our signatures on the Power Of ~Attorney done at the Notary and all our details, copies of our passports containing our address and we did give him our English mobile number this is what he has been contacting us on. We think he may have copied our signatures on this so called contract. ~We are extremely worried now that he can take us to court over this, he has threatened to send his brother to see us who lives in the UK. He says we do not mess with him, What we need to know is where do we stand legally with this, due to the fact we cancelled legally the power of attorney the next day and he did not give us a deposit and the signtures on this so called contract look like our signatures but we know they are not. What can he legally do, he is asking us for £10,000.00 for breaching this so called contact and also he says he had the money transferred in to his account ready to give us and because of this transfer and us selling to someone else, because he kept making excuses and no deposit. that he has also lost £3,000.00 in interest on this money so he wants this also, he has said he will take us to court and he is getting a solicitor and of course the threat of "Don't Mess with Him" and that he will send his brother round to our home to collect this money. Where do we stand, can anyone help us with this issue. Please. Rocamber
  25. Hi all,My Mum recently suddenly died in hospital in Turkey . She was repatriated and buried in the UK. She and my stepdad have a property in Didim. They also have a property in Bulgaria. Firstly, my step dad has not been issued a death certificate of any kind. What does he need to do and where does he need to go to get one? Secondly, myself and my brothers want to give my stepdad full control of the properties. (bulgaria has the same inheritance law as turkey i am told). How do we go about doing this? Do we need to issue a power of attorney to my step dad? My step dad is in turkey and myself and one of my brothers are in the UK. My other brother is in Australia.If anyone could help, that would be wonderful!Thanks a lot,Emma
