Does signing a divorce paper count as divorce?
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
If a husband receives an official form from the court on which is written the words “I divorce my wife” and he signs it, is that counted as a divorce?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.
Yes, this is a divorce if the name of the wife is written on the form.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
It is not a condition of divorce that the wife should know or that she should be divorced face-to-face
A woman who was thrice-divorced (three talaaqs) married another man, with the intention of asking for divorce. Can she ask for divorce now?
