    Divorce in Tunisian court vs UK court

    I was more just wondering if anyone knows what would happen if I had just gone through the UK courts. Would he have to do anything in Tunisia to get it recognised? Seems like a bit of an exaggeration that he would be 'tangled up in court for the next 4 years', but also quite believable...

    Divorce in Tunisian court vs UK court

    I haven't signed anything. I got an invitation to attend the last hearing but said I couldn't attend for obvious reasons. Husband attended and was told the next hearing would be in November. I have paid around 2,500 TND to my husband to pay the lawyer. I don't know how much a lawyer should cost...

    Divorce in Tunisian court vs UK court

    I am in the middle of divorcing my husband. His conditions for agreeing to the divorce were that 1) I pay for it, 'since it was a decision I made on my own to rip us apart' 2) we divorce in Tunisia rather than the UK I agreed to pay what the divorce would cost in the UK (£650), and any other...

    Topping up income with savings - Tunisia to UK 2.5 year Visa

    The money that my dad has given me (£24,000) can stay in my account for as long as I need it, and will have been there for at least the 6 months required when we apply for the visa. This is just topping up my income to the threshold, so I'm not sure why it would need to be £60k but maybe I've...

    Topping up income with savings - Tunisia to UK 2.5 year Visa

    Thanks for your reply MO2915. My husband plans to open a Tunisian street food takeaway/very small capacity restaurant in the UK. He will have financing from his father and/or the sale of some properties in Tunisia. I hate saying to people that he doesn't need me as he has money of his own, but...

    Topping up income with savings - Tunisia to UK 2.5 year Visa

    Maybe I didn't explain it very well. I need to make up the difference between my annual wage and the £18,600 requirement for 2.5 years for the visa we will apply for. I just found out I will be getting a pay increase from 1st August which will take me nearer to £16,000 per year (I think you have...

    Topping up income with savings - Tunisia to UK 2.5 year Visa

    I recently got married to my Tunisian husband and we are now thinking about his settlement over here. I earn a couple of pounds over £15,100 a year (gross), so don't reach the £18,600 financial requirement as is. My mother passed away late last year without a will, so everything went to my...

    Getting married in Tunisia. HELP!!

    Got my birth certificate yesterday they told me it takes a week, but it's been dated the 5th so will be more than 21 days old when I get married on 31st May in Hammamet. Am I going to have to get another one to ensure it's less than 21 days old or is it more of a rough guideline? I don't want to...

    Can we get married in Tunisia within a week?

    I have just received this reply from the Embassy, might be helpful to anyone else in the same situation in the future... As I have already given our notice in the UK, as long as I can get everything else done in Tunisia in a couple of days, I think we'll be alright to get married within the...
