I married my husband in Morocco in 1996. He moved to UK with full residence. I had a terrible life with him for 12 years, loving in UK. He got arrested in Morocco in 2008 and got a 3 year jail sentence. (quite honestly that was a RELIEF to me). He is not in jail now. He is still in Morocco. We don''t communicate and I have not seen him for 4 years. I want a divorce. I have been told that I cant divorce him without proof that he receives a letter saying I am divorcing him and the only was to do that is to get an agent in Morocco to deliver it. This is impossible for me. I dont have the money. I have been told I can get Legal Aid for the UK part of the divorce but not for this ''delivery'' in Morocco. Is there any other way I can divorce him?
People cannot simply go around divorcing their spouse behind their back, without letting them know, or making their best efforts to do so. If they could then there would be no end of problems!
So, those are your options. You must either prove to a court that he has received your Petition, or prove to the court that you have tried your best efforts to get it to him. Proof of receipt can come in many forms. The easiest is if he responds. If not then the best method is to hire a process server who specializes in foreign delivery or specifically in Morocco.
