Hi.

First of all I am sorry that I can't write in French, so please accept my apologies.

I would like to know the divorce law in Morocco and how long it takes. I am an Indian and married a beautiful Moroccan girl, but due to some misunderstandings our marriage has ended (for her). I married her in January this year and she came to live with me in Saudi for almost 6-7 months and has returned back to Morocco.

Please let me know how I can help her in getting her wish to conclude this divorce. Do I need to travel to Morocco or can I send the papers from here. Honestly I am quite affected with this divorce and trying to gather my strength and finalize this as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance..

Salam,

I assume that you are married under Moroccan law. Well, things can be pretty complicated depending on the type of divorce you want to get, if you guys want to come to a specific agreement, with compensation or not etc.
I would definitely recommend travelling to Morocco to hire a good attorney and try to settle things down asap in person.

If you cannot or do not want to do so, you can still get all the information you need from the Moroccan Embassy or Consulate in Saudi Arabia (ask for an "Adoul" or representative).
Considering that you are married to a Moroccan national they can provide assistance or at least recommend attorneys in Saudi Arabia who are admitted to practice law in Morocco.

You can be the one initiating the divorce or just waiting for her to do so. You should think carefully about what you might want (strategy) because your decision can have a big impact on how thing are going to be handled and the potential outcome.

You might be able to get a divorce without doing anything if you agree to all her conditions. Not sure you are going to like them though...
Hope my answer helps, good luck.

Hi

Can you please tell me what kind of conditions that she may have... We had no pre-conditions in the "Nikah" and I had paid the "Mahr" in complete infront of the adoul. We also do not have any kids in between and also is it possible for me to appoint someone in Morocco without me being present there.

Its really so difficult going thru this separation that I do not want to see her again if she really doesn't want us to be back together.

Salam,

I do not know exactly, it depends on your initial marriage agreement and what she might ask for the specific type of divorce she is opting for (mutual consent, for fault etc.). You might need to pay her an alimony and maybe other amounts etc.
Some persons can be more honest than others that's why you should be careful.

I think that it's possible to hire a Morrocan attorney from Saudi Arabia (just need to pay etc.). But it might be a better idea to consult an attorney admitted to practice law in Morocco currently working for a Saudi Law firm (there are lists you can find online). Such practitioners will then take care of all the formalities.

Hopefully you can get things done peacefully without having to go to Morocco.

To whom this may concern:

I would also like to have a divorce. I married a Moroccan women from Casablanca a few years ago in order to sort out the papers for my son who was born out of wedlock in 2002. Under Moroccan law, the state doesn't recognise children born outside of marriage, so hence my reason for marrying her. Now, I have all the corect paperwork from the courts, I am on my son's birth certificate and now in a position to divorce her. This was all agreed at the beginning, so the divorse should be mutually agreeable. I consulted my lawyer here in Marrakesh and he advised me that for the settlement and monthly maintenance payments, the courts would take into account your current salary, any assets bought or should during your marriage and the value of your company (I have a small management SARL here). Is this correct? And if any assets were bought or sold outside of Morocco, would this also be taken into account?

Any advice or previous similar cases would be most welcome. And my apologies also for not writing in French, too complicated for me!

With kindest regards

Aidan

Hello, I am an American woman.
I was married in Morocco to my husband in 2011. He is Moroccan. Most of our Marriage I lived there with him.
Reciently, 4 months ago, I needed to return to America for a surgery to my knee. Things were strained between us before I was injured. Now my husband is telling me he is considering to end our marriage. I wish to avoid any divorce under these circumstances. I am in fear he may try to divorce me while I am out of Morocco with out my consent. We do not have children, but he owns half of an agricultural company, and that company owns farm property in Morocco,
He has a distinctive car and I know the matriculation.
I was told he is moving everything we own to another house. I believe the house he has rented is in a small village outside of Marrakech near Ghmate, but I don't know how to find the exact location.
I am quite sick over this situation. I don't know what to do.
I really wish to prevent this divorce under these circumstances

Please, can you offer me advise.
Sincerely,
Angela
