Hello everyone, hope you all doing well and keeping safe. I am in a situation and needs any advice. I had a traditional customary marriage back in Africa, we then moved to the U.K. and are now British citizens. I filled for a divorce petition about a year ago and half way through the process my husband went to Africa to dissolve our traditional marriage without telling me. He then wrote to the court dealing with the divorce that the marriage had been dissolved.
I received an email from them asking me if this done why am I persueing with the divorce. Am guessing you probably know how I felt. I replied to them explaining the whole situation that I have no knowledge of such thing.
Anyway now the courts wants me to provide the order from Africa to prove that am divorce and fill in a form D11. My question is. Is it possible for them to accept that as a dissolution of my marriage as I read that since we both domiciled in the U.K. this is where everything has to be done. Sorry for such a long post but as so confused please can someone advise me as to how to reply to the courts. Thank you
