    Default How to Make a Civil Divorce Conditional Upon Your Receiving an Islamic Divorce

    A couple from Iran is presently living in the United States. They want to get divorced, but Iran won't recognize a U.S. civil divorce. The husband wants to make sure that the wife can't go to court in Iran and seek additional alimony and property after the U.S. divorce is granted. How can he make the civil divorce judgment contingent upon their receiving a shariat (Islamic divorce) so that there is no possibility of further legal proceedings in Iran?

    Frankly, it sounds like he's overcomplicating the issues. A religious divorce won't have the effect of ending their legal marriage in the U.S., so they can pursue and obtain their Islamic divorce while their divorce action is pending, and enter the divorce judgment after they receive the Islamic divorce.
