just a query to see if anyone can help and explain about divorce procedure. i will briefly explain the situation i am in. my turkish fiancee was previously married to an english woman. last year his turkish solicitor obtained him a divorce from his ex wife. however my fiancee is now a free man and can marry again if he wants for instance another turkish woman no problem for him but because he wants to marry me another english woman the legal system so we were told has to now issue the divorce papers again(translated) back to his english ex wife and then they go to the consulate i think in ankarra then after he is free to marry me. i dont know the ins and outs of the legal system in turkey but i would be grateful if anyone can advise me either way and if possible how long it will take

thanks but i have looked on that website and i still dont know anything more. like i stated in my post my fiancee is legally divorced in turkey but it is the process afterwards that i need to know so he can marry me another english woman. when i was recently in turkey we both went to some kind of goverment building enquiring if his papers were back to turkey only to be told they were lost in transit so the whole process has to start again but i still dont know what the process was its so confusing

surely, divorced is divorced and shouldn´t matter which nationality you are marrying the next time....if the man is divorced and free to marry a turkish woman then he should be divorced enough to marry an english woman?????? I fear a line is being played here!!!!!

Reading the stuff on the consulate website that is not quite the case.  The Turkish man has to be divorced in both the UK and Turkey.  So if he is married in the UK and gets divorced he then has to go through the process again in Turkey before he can marry again.  But I do see where you are coming from Unsure  sort of goes with Alphas  collection joke.........

From the consulate site: (leads you to beleive it is a regular occurance if they are providing information <img src='/static/images/smileys//lol.gif' alt='lol'> 

If a marriage between a Turkish and a British national was solemnized in the UK and then registered in Turkey or if a marriage between a Turkish and a British national was solemnized and registered in Turkey, regardless of divorce degree that may be a obtained in the UK, a suit of divorce should be filed in Turkey as well. To this end the following steps should be taken by the foreign national:

* A solicitor in the UK will give Power of Attorney to an appointed solicitor in Turkey. The Power of Attorney should be
apostilled by the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office. 
* Upon receipt of this Power of Attorney the appointed solicitor in Turkey will commence with divorce proceedings.
