We have an adept understanding of Islamic divorce law. We can provide you with our expertise in this area of law.

Firstly, if you have had an Islamic marriage which took place in another country like Pakistan or Saudi Arabia then it is considered legally binding in the UK. Therefore, there is no separate requirement for you to register your marriage again in England as it will be automatically recognised by English law. However, if you enter into a traditional Islamic marriage (“Nikah”) in the UK then the marriage will have to be registered at the Civil Registry in order to be legally binding.

Clients often seek advice and guidance on both the UK legal system as well as the Sharia Council.  We can guide you through the process and help you achieve the best results for you and your family.  We are able to advise you on the validity of Islamic marriages, with expertise in all the main areas of Islamic law including:

We can help you with a full range of family related legal matters, including:

  • Talaq (divorce pronounced by the husband)
  • Khul’a (divorce pronounced by the wife)
  • Civil divorce through the English Courts
  • Financial settlements – including the Haq Mahr and international assets

We recognise that Islamic divorces often involve an international element. Differences in religious and civil ceremonies exist which can translate into different outcomes. We can advise and guide you with any cross-border issues that may arise. We can offer you legal advice on how to protect yourself financially with our international family law solicitors.

Our aim is to provide you with an efficient and culturally sensitive service. As a result this minimises delay, and therefore a more cost-effective process for you.

Thank you Dev and Rosewood!

Dev was super helpful, professional and ensured I got the best advice and support throughout.

Excellent service, dealt promptly with all the matters at hand and kept me updated throughout. Highly recommended!

Very Big Thank You to Dev – an excellent solicitor!

Emma was very easy to talk to and made me feel very comfortable. The service I received was brilliant and I would definitely recommend Rosewood Solicitors to my family and friends. Excellent client service.

I would highly recommend Dev, he was outstanding!

Dev was the duty solicitor when I was arrested and questioned. From the outset, his calm and professional manner were a great source of comfort in a situation that was new and incredibly stressful for me. He showed great technical competence, giving me the right advice that ultimately lead to the right outcome for me. More than that though, he was also very human and understanding, going well beyond the requirements to ensure he was doing as much as possible to keep me informed and make me feel well looked after. This was exceptional service.

Emma was extremely helpful throughout the process of drafting our legal documents and always happy to answer my many questions along the way! I would highly recommend Rosewood to anyone seeking legal advice

I would like to thank all those involved at Rosewoods including yourself (Dev) for all the meetings, phone calls and the preparation, editing and final production of the necessary documentation for the hearing and being instrumental in the outcome.  I can't thank you all enough.  We'll now see how it goes from here.  I would now like to think that this is all done and dusted but should I ever need legal help in the future, I shall be returning to Rosewoods.

Emma was really helpful, friendly and approachable. I knew that if I had a question, she was happy to help or answer it as soon as possible.

I can honestly say that the best decision I made was coming to Rosewood solicitors. From the minute I called up to the very end, the service, understanding nature, support and advice was outstanding. I was not expecting the result I got and I felt that Dev, Sarah, and the barrister went above and beyond to support and help me through. I would recommend Dev and team without any hesitation. If I am ever in need of legal support or advice in the future I would only ever contact this firm. I could never thank them enough.

Emma Patel is a first rate solicitor - she gives her honest assessment in an empathetic and caring way, even when it wasn't what I wanted to hear. I hope to not need her services again but if I should I would have no hesitation in calling or recommending her.

My children and I used Rosewood Solicitors in a domestic abuse situation. They completely accepted and understood our situation and couldn't have done a better job in carrying out our wishes exactly as we wanted. We are so happy with the whole service we received from all staff members, we are very grateful.

Emma was very friendly, efficient and professional. She was willing to advise and fight for what was fair. In hindsight, the outcome was a great one in a very flawed system.

My Solicitor (Dev) made me feel comfortable discussing the case with me, provided sound advice and did his very best by me. I was made to feel that I really mattered to him, something which helped keep me strong through a very difficult period of my life.

Thank you Dev, you helped us so much I really appreciate what you did - thank you.

Both Dev & Michael (Counsel) did their utmost to keep me informed and support me, thank you.

Dev has been calm, clear and sympathetic, helping me through a situation I didn't understand and had no experience of. I really appreciate the time he has taken on my behalf, both with interviews and explaining how the system works and what to expect.

I would be more than happy to recommend Emma and her team to anyone who needs the service of a solicitor. She set realistic expectations from the start and was a great support throughout.

Dev’s responsiveness and a caring and understanding approach made a huge difference in being able to cope at a very difficult time.
