Do you both reside in the UK.

If both sides do not agree then Tunisia is not the best place either it will immediately be complicated.

If the answer is both in UK living/working then as you live here UK is best as you are more likely to be able to enforce court order here.

If you both live in the UK, you better sort your divorce out here with you both agreeing or even disagreeing and follow the UK system. Going to Tunisia will make things worse.

First, he is Algerian marrying you in Tunisia. I believe this complicates things even more. Divorce might be more difficult in Tunisia cos he’s Algerian and you have a child.

Think about you child first and life before any money. It might be cheaper in Tunisia, but you’ll have more hassle and pay even more in the long run.

A mutual solution that can make your child happy in his future would be best.

Best wishes.

Are you British? You said so. Not sure though.
Are you born in Britain?
If you need help then you need to supply more information and get your facts straight.

This forum should help you.

The reason I asked if you're British is because your English doesn't make sense and you don't explain your situation properly.

Well I ask isit better for me to apply for divorce here in the uk or Tunisia as he is refusing to accept the divorce I made it quite clear I think said that I am British and he is Algerian and living separate as I living in uk and he is living in Algeria haven’t been to the uk he can divorce me there as it will be a lot easier but he won’t

It is better to divorce where you are normally resident.

so both in UK > then UK

If he is Algeria and you are in UK and he has never lived here with you and has no money here > Divorce in Tunisia

If the marriage has been registered in the UK then I would divorce in Tunisia and also divorce/submit Tunisian court papers here in the UK.

Thats all there is to say you have a complicated situation so you will most likely need legal advice which I recommend both in Tunisia and UK.

Maybe you can leave loose ends but I am not that kind maybe you die one day rich and your old husband turns up with a marriage certificate or maybe you go on holiday with your new boyfriend/husband in Tunisia and your old husband is there and calls the police and waves a Tunisian marriage certificate.

Etc etc
