My husband and I married as students in the UK in 1989. He is a Kenyan national, I am a US national. We subsequently married again in Kenya a few years later. I am currently seeking a divorce through the Kenyan courts. Is there anything that can be done about our UK marriage? How can a divorce be obtained? Both of us are permanently resident in Kenya since 1989.
As cookie says the UK has no jurisdiction as neither of you are UK nationals, live here or are domicile(regard the UK as your home) in the UK.
The foreign divorce will be recognised in the UK as long as there is an official procedure and you both are informed and have reasonable opportunity to be involved in the procedure.
You will also need an official document certifying the dissolution of the marriage.
I''m not a lawyer my advice is my understanding of the law.
