Bangladesh Divorce & Family Law

Bangladesh is a country which operates its family law on the basis of Sharia (Islamic) law.  We regularly deal with cases involving Bangladeshi nationals, or those who married them.

The divorce procedure for a man is on the basis of a Talaq and registration at the local Union Council.

If the parties consent to a divorce, it can be done relatively quickly.  Financial arrangements are governed by the Nikkah.

Children matters are dealt with via Islamic law also, but parties should be aware that Bangladesh is, like the majority of Muslim countries, not a signatory to The Hague Convention and, therefore, advice should be sought before a child is allowed to be taken to Bangladesh.

We are specialist international divorce lawyers and family solicitors and we advise clients who are either UK-based but originate from Bangladesh, or are living outside of the UK but have a connection with England or Wales.

I wanted to say a big thanks to Henry Bookman and his colleagues for all their help and guidance during my divorce - a long a complicated one. The team were all brilliant. I loved the fact that Henry was happy to explore possibilities and search for solutions. I also feel that on occasions he gave hope when things were against me. All told a great coach who was ready with pearls of wisdom when I needed it.

I would strongly recommend this firm. I had the opportunity to discuss my case thoroughly with Mr Bookman. But before the initial consultation, I had a telephone conversation with a legal assistant who took most of the details down, so that my initial consultation was to the point I appreciate the advice given by Mr Bookman and think it a humble approach that the initial consultation is FREE and carried by the most senior member of the firm and not by a junior staff like it happens in other firms.

Aziz Malik. Unbelievably good. Fantastic advice and was able to manage my difficult family law case to a superb outcome. Highly recommended.

I did a consultation with Henry and I highly recommend him. He took the time to understand my situation, checked that he had all the information he needed and once he realized he was not the best person for my case, he recommended another lawyer in another country who could help. Unlike other lawyers I've worked with previously, he was extremely honest, transparent and generous with his time.

The professionalism and speed at which Mr Henry responded to the initial enquiry was remarkable and the advice provided was detailed and clear.
