TOPIC: summon via the office of foreign affairs

summon via the office of foreign affairs 3 years 9 months ago #16353


my friend married some years ago an algerian national living in in australia (as mentioned on the marriage certificate).

The husband abandomned her as soon as he went back home, and stopped all communication with her.

We are not sure if the husband still lives at the address of the wedding certificate, or if he ever lived there, or if he is still in australia

She is married under the presidential act.

I am a French National myself, and of course i am unable to marry her to get her a visa for my country.

I am quite familiar with the french laws and courts, but of course i know not much about the laws and procedures running your country.

I first thought that there was motives to void the marriage ab initio, but none of the lawyers contacted accepted to file an annulation of the marriage, they all proposed an annulment.

they asked between 200K and 700K pesos. Due to the price of the service, we decided not to request an annulment.

Finally, we decided to file a divorce within the shariah court and we found a lawyer within the shariah court To file a divorce.

The lawyer sent a summon to the husband 2 times that was never responded, and he files a motion of divorce ex-parte

The shariah court dismissed the motion at the motive that it couldnt acquire the jurisdiction over the husband, and asked the office of foreign affairs to deliver the summon to the the husband via diplomatic ways.

The problem is that the lawyer didnt give many explanations to my friend, and didnt tell her how long this procedure could take, and what would be the consequences if the summon could not be delivered via diplomatic ways.

We also do not know if there is a way to accelerate the process

Any information related to your experience in that matter would be of a great help.

Best regards Marc
