Hi everybody. I need some advice. My daughter married a Tunisian guy in Tunisia four years ago. She has never lived there and he has never even visited here though she visited him a few times after the wedding. She inherited some money and about a year after they married he asked her to lend him about £7,000 so he could start a business - which she did and he did start the business. Unfortunately as everybody will know things in Tunisia went downhill after the beach shooting incident and the business eventually failed. He got a job in the hospitality business and not long after he told her he wanted a divorce. We have our suspicions that he was having an affair with somebody he worked with. He has promised to pay her back every bit of the money he borrowed. He said that he had been to Court and she had to go to Tunisia which was impossible - he asked for proof that she lived in the UK, he sent some papers to the UK for her to sign - basically she did everything that was asked of her. He kept telling her it will get sorted in November, it will get sorted in May, etc. etc. but nothing seems to have happened. She tried to call him for an update - his phone was not connected. She did eventually get a confirmation of delivery and a read receipt for it but still no contact. We have tried emailing him and have heard nothing. The marriage was never registered in this county so questions are: is she legally married in the UK - we have been told she is not as it was never registered here and he never visited/obtained a visa to visit. How can we find out if she is actually divorced in Tunisia and he is just fobbing her off. Also is there any way we can push to at least get some of the money back - he did promise faithfully (!!!!) that he would pay it back and that he was just waiting for the Judge to tell him how much he has to pay back a month. We think there may be a possibility that he is not in Tunisia - he did tell her that he had been offered a job in Europe which he was probably going to take - this was last year but he did not say where in Europe. He works in the hotel/hotel complex business on the entertainment team. We do have his lawyer's address and also his mother's address which is where he was living. Anybody who can help with any information/advice would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
