Morocco Divorce & Family Law

Morocco operates a personal status law known as the “Mudawna”.  This is essentially the family code of Morocco.  It is based on Sharia jurisprudence.  It includes that Moroccans living abroad can draw up a marriage contract in the presence of two Muslim witnesses, and it can be registered with a Moroccan Consulate or judicial authorities.  This is very important for Moroccan Nationals who are living abroad who wish to have their issues regulated with the knowledge that this will be respected by Moroccan law.

Both men and women can start divorce proceedings in Morocco, although reconciliation and mediation are encouraged before this takes place.  Divorce proceedings take place in the secular court, rather than before religious officials.  The parties can always get divorced via mutual consent.

In respect of children matters, priority in respect of residence usually goes to the mother, but this is a matter of custom rather than black letter law.

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

I contacted Brookman to ask for information regarding the validity of an international divorce court ruling. They were very quick in providing me with the right information. When I had another question a few months later around children matters I phoned them again and after taking some background information and contact details they booked me in for a free telephone consultation with 1 of their partners Talitha Brookman. She spent half an hour of her time explaining to me what I could expect and provided legal advice. All was free of charge. I would not hesitate to contact them again should any matter become more formal and have to go through court. The service has been quick, professional and very friendly.

Highly recommend this firm. Having searched around different firms for advice for some time, I had a free consultation with Henry Brookman. He was incredibly knowledgeable about my complex situation, gave straightforward advice and empowered me to understand exactly how I need to proceed.

I recently had a free initial consultation with Henry Brookman via video conference. He was considered and meticulous in his approach and gave me well thought through advice. He followed this up with a letter in writing summarising the advice he gave me. I would thoroughly recommend his services to anyone looking for legal representation in a divorce.
