Can you help me with an Islamic divorce?

In the unfortunate event that your marriage has come to an end, it is important to consult solicitors who can help you reach an amicable settlement in accordance with Sharia law.

We have extensive experience of working with Sharia councils across the UK, helping to facilitate the granting of religious divorces to both men and women, as well as seeking equitable financial settlements and repayments or completion of Mehr payments when necessary.

Whether your separation is based on Talaq, Khula, Faskh-e-Nikah or Tafweedh-e-Talaq, our divorce solicitors have the expertise and the understanding you will need at this difficult time. Call us now on 0800 780 2730 or contact us online today and we will call you back.

Does Slater and Gordon understand Islamic principles?

We fully understand and respect the need for Islamic divorces to be conducted in accordance with Islamic principles. This understanding extends to every aspect of the process: beginning with specialist mediation and arbitration in accordance with Islamic principles.

We also work with a number of highly trained Muslim marriage guidance counsellors – both male and female – who can assist with the most delicate of issues. Importantly, our knowledge of both Islamic and civil law can help to unravel problems in divorces when you have had a UK civil marriage as well as a Nikah. 

Can you help with Islamic marriage contracts?

Our knowledge of Sharia law and Civil law means that we are able to assist even in the drafting of Islamic marriage contracts. These can incorporate pre-nuptial agreements that are enforceable under UK law, together with many other clauses that you may both wish to take advantage of before you marry.
