Am I officially divorced?

Recommended Posts


Divorce decree ordered by the Turkish Court becomes "absolute" if plaintiff and/or defendant do not appeal it within 2 weeks period of time. However, you need to make sure divorce paper is delivered to other party as well, given the fact that divorce decree can't be absolute ("final and binding") if 2 weeks appeal right has not been granted for both party properly. 

You do not need to apply for a decree absolute, as the court automatically notifies ID authority about the divorce to update your marital status. But, on the other hand, if you need a proof of paper to show your divorce status in UK for some official reasons then you might need to collect a copy from the family court in Turkey and have it certified with Apostille stamp. 

All the best,
