MG Legal, local divorce Solicitors, were shocked to discover Triple talaq, as it is commonly called, is an ancient and controversial Islamic practice where a man divorces a woman by saying the word talaq, the Arabic word for divorce, three times.
The practice, which should take three months, is often instantaneous and there are even reports of it being delivered by phone or text message. On the flip side, many UK divorces take anywhere between 6 weeks and 12 months once the papers are in. The practice of triple talaq, by contrast, often sees women being forced to leave the family home instantly, and in many cases becoming single mothers in a matter of minutes.
