    Short term RP

    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 when applying for an RP. I do not have the financial means to meet the obligation myself either. When I need to renew I am putting money in the bank, getting a statement, and then giving the money back to whomever it came from. I do this because I must be with my children. My question is: I am committing a crime every time I have needed to renew my resident permit over the past couple of years. I would like to know what would happen if I were to refuse to do so any longer? Specifically- since I am the custodial parent would I be able to leave WITH my children? Or would they just kick me out without them? Their father has been a "father of convenience" since we separated. If it was convenient for him to spend time with them, he did, if it wasn't he didn't. My children would be devastated if I were separated from them. They are quite young- 6 and 8. They are not particularly bonded to their father because of how little time he spent with them over the years. I would appreciate any and all responses. I am very tired and fed up with our situation. I find it incredibly stressful to even just apply for an RP because I am always scared that won't be able to find money or something will go wrong and I will have to leave. My ex husband not being able to financially support us is also a huge stress, it affects my parenting, my psyche everything. I am tired and just want to take my children back to the US. I am not interested in getting Turkish citizenship in the least. I just can not understand how I can be required to stay in a country I don't want to live in; that I can not support myself or my children in and neither can the father. I mean he literally has no money at all often. He has to support his mother- because he bankrupted her, he has remarried with another child on the way in addition to a step daughter, and then there is myself and our two children. I can not get blood from a stone, our situation is not going to change. I have gone along for long enough and he keeps digging himself a bigger hole and dragging everyone into it.
  2. 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. The problems that I am having with my ex husband are legion. He has made a right sh*t storm of his life and I am tired of living in the consequences of it. He is currently threatening me saying that if I don't come back soon he will not help me renew my resident permit when I do, telling me that I "will be on my own" whatever that means. He can't handle having our children full time is the crux of the issue. He is so used to having me there to take care of them while he's out living his life. Having problems renewing my resident permit is an ongoing problem. I am forced to commit a criminal offense every time I have had to renew it pretty much since we separated in 2012. I would also like to know the answer to a question that has been burning in my mind for the past few years. I have custody of both of our children, he has visitation. If I can not meet the financial requirement to obtain a resident permit on my own and my ex husband can not/doesn't want to. He says I am not his financial responsibility. Can I leave with our children? I am not interested in obtaining Turkish citizenship in the least. My ex husband has been a father of "convenience" for all intensive purposes. When it is convenient for him he spends time with the kids and when it's not he doesn't. Why do I have to commit a criminal offense in order to be with my children? Except for financially supporting them, I am the parent who has been with them constantly since birth. It just doesn't make sense to me.

  4. 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.
