That is great !

This service allows the ordering of official, certified civil status documents online and retrieve them in Tunisia and abroad via post service .

That way you can get, without trouble, the birth certificate of hubby, to find out if you are still married

looks like only birth certs available - marriage certs would have been good too
will only work if marriage registered in municipalite

you also need to know parents and grandparents names for this ..... just tried it there, lol

On the same site, divorce is also mentioned on the birth certificate.
Hi Laurence I used that site to get his birth certificate cost around £8 and delivered within a week. I have been take of the birth certificate, notification box of where our marriage detail were is now blank so assume we are divorced. I did not see anything on the site regarding other doc's so need to find out how to obtain divorce papers now. X

You don't have to return to Tunisia to get your divorce papers, you can appoint a Tunisian lawyer to do it for you and he/she will know which court to get them from.

But first check out Caramels thread http://www.tunisianloverats.com/threads/tunisian-lawyers-from-hell-ezzedine-ben-amor.345/

Hi neat, sorry, I've no idea of costs but it should be a lot cheaper than a solicitor would cost in the UK. Maybe @Caramel can give you a rough idea ?

Hi all latest update I have contacted a lawer by the name off Oussema Helal from the British Embassy web site. I explained to him that I have my husbands(ex) latest birth certificate and my name is no longer on it and could he possibly get the divorce papers for me and what would the cost of his work be.
He replyed to me today asking me to send him a copy of my ex-husbands birth certificate which the divorce judgement appears in order to allow him retrace it.
The box where my marriage was recorded is blank nothing else in it's place. I am really confused now can anyone throw some light on this please.
Oh and he never mentioned anything about what his fees will be.
Feeling rather stress and confused now. X

I have just sent him an email explaing there is no reference to divorce on the birth certificate and that my name and marriage record are no longer on there. I have also requested for a price of his costs if he pursues the case of acquiring the divorce papers. X

That sounds good ,its always best to ask first.He shoudlnt really charge much for this as it is just a case of emailing relivent depatments in Tunisia and having them faxed or scanned over .

Hi all I have just got a reply from the lawyer today saying " unfortunatly without the place of your divorce and its date we can not find the judgement.Before we talk about fees, would you please provide us with the above mentioned information."
I really am now not sure what to do as I do not know where or when he divorced me. I did message the ex asking for this information and he replyed that he has not divorced me.
Is there anyone that can advice what I am meant to do now. Feeling well stressed and confused with the whole situation.x

@neat I am not sure how the system works there...so I have just idea. .What about if you try to file complain to office what provide you copy of his birthcertificate without your name as it is mistake because he is married. I would attach your marriage certificate. Let this few sentences be translated to arabic for easier administration. I assume they will answer you it is not mistake because record was changed base on his divorce document. They might give you time and place or copy of it what is keeping in their record for make change in his birth certificate. ..
...I would try

If your name is no longer mentioned on his birth cert, he has divorced you. When you get the Judgment paper from the court, that will act as your divorce paper here in the UK. You do not need to divorce in the UK again. Because that happened to me and I just sent to the relevant authorities such as banks, pensions dept, etc. Also, unless you divorce in the UK, it is not registered in the UK divorce registry but the papers from Tunisia are still valid and that will be proof of you divorce which will act as a Decree Nisi. I simply don't understand why this lawyer cannot get the divorce judgment for you. I think you should contact Malek Rejiba and tell him what you told the other lawyer. Malek will carry out the proper checks and will tell you how much it is going to cost. Tell him Delene recommended you.

Hi all so it turns out I am not divorced at all. I sent off for another birth certificate, now have 1 in french 1 in arabic and both had my marriage missing so I messaged the office I obtained them from asking for date and place of divorce they messaged back saying they had made a mistake. I was still married and sent another certificate with my marriage registered on it. To say I am guttered is an understatement.
