If the divorce is filed in a USA court and court grants the divorce, is it considered as one divorce such that the husband and wife can re-marry or is it 3 talaaq that they can not re-marry. Please reply ASAP. jazakAllahu Khairan
If the husband instituted divorce through court and it was granted, it will
be regarded as only one Talaaq-e-Raj’ee. The husband can revoke the divorce
within the Iddat period.
If he did not revoke it, the Talaaq will be changed to Talaaq-e-Baain. In
such a situation, a reperformance of Nikah will be necessary. If the wife
instituted the divorce through Court, it will not constitute Talaaq.
