Attestation of Talaq

£100.00

If your talaq has already taken place, whether verbally or by other means, it is still important to obtain an Islamic divorce document to substantiate the divorce. This would help to prevent any potential discord, and more importantly it would make life easier for the divorced couple especially when wanting to remarry in future. The Sharee Council can issue an Islamic divorce certificate to verify the Islamic divorce upon verifying the necessary details.

Additional Information

Islam always recommends that all important matters of life be documented whether it be marriage, divorce, inheritance or something else.

Documents issued by an Islamic authority such as a reputable Sharee Council serve as proof and is widely accepted by the Muslim community in the UK. Furthermore, our documents are sought by foreign embassies/consulates in the UK of Muslim countries to verify matters.

If your talaq has already taken place, whether verbally or by other means, it is still important to obtain an Islamic divorce document to substantiate the divorce. This would help to prevent any potential discord, and more importantly it would make life easier for the divorced couple especially when wanting to remarry in future.

The Sharee Council can issue an Islamic divorce certificate to verify a talaq given by the husband.

The process for this involves the Sharee Council verifying the talaq from the husband who granted it, and where this is not possible, through independent eye-witness testimony if available.

This service can also be used if a khul’/khula (divorce in lieu of mahr by mutual agreement) has taken place privately, and Islamic divorce documentation is required.

For the attestation, details of the divorced couple are required. The cost of the service is £100 if the divorce can be verified through the admission of the person who granted the talaq (ex-husband). If witness testimony is necessary to verify the divorce, then an extra £50 is charged (i.e. a total of £150). However, if the divorce cannot be verified adequately despite attempts then an admin charge of £25 will be incurred and the remaining amount paid will be refunded to you. In such a scenario, appropriate advice will be given to assist you.

If your Islamic divorce has not taken place yet, and you wish to take this step, please refer to our Faskh, Khula and Talaq services.
