Divorce under Pressure

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Is Talaq (divorce) given in writing under the pressure of the first wife valid or not without any witnesses?

A: The first wife may have put pressure on the husband to divorce the second but the final decision was his. It is valid even if there are no witnesses. If a husband is ‘forced’ to give the wife a divorce and he does so, the divorce will be valid and binding (Raddul Muhtaar V10 P459).
