Hi all,

A friend married last month in Morocco. Upon his return to UK, he discovered something that has made the marriage un-repairable. He is a British Citizen, she is a Moroccon Citizen.

Does he have to go back to Morocco to divorce? Can he do it from the UK? If he has to go back, how long will he need there?

She is refusing to divorce, which I'm assuming because she wants to keep the money given to her (dowry). If he initiates the divorce, he has no right to ask for anything back.

He is obviously quite distressed at the moment, so I'm trying to help him as much as I can.

Looking forward to any reply.

Much appreciated
