Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Aoa. I wanted to ask if a girl and guy are in a secret nikkah because girl was too dumb back then. And later the girl realized that guy is not good for her n she won’t ever stay happy with him plus her family would never accept him so she asked for divorce. He keeps asking her to talk to her family firstly she kept saying i can’t I know they would never accept u. But on much forcing I lied to him that i talked to my mom n she said no. It’s never happening because and i can’t force my family so please divorce me. He divorced me 3 times saying ‘i divorce u’. Is the divorce valid? Despite of the fact that I lied to him once?
Later I asked him then he said he divorced because I asked for it


Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wabarakatuhu,

Even though your husband based the divorces on the incorrect information which you gave to him, all the three Talaaqs issued by your husband will be valid. You are now out of his wedlock, and your Iddah has commenced when he uttered those words.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best

  الطَّلاَقُ مَرَّتَانِ فَإِمْسَاكٌ بِمَعْرُوفٍ أَوْ تَسْريح بِإِحْسَانٍ وَلاَ يَحِلُّ لَكُمْ أَن تَأْخُذُواْ مِمَّا آتَيْتُمُوهُنَّ شَيْئًا إِلاَّ أَن يَخَافَا أَلاَّ يُقِيمَا حُدُودَ اللَّهِ فَإِنْ خِفْتُمْ أَلاَّ يُقِيمَا حُدُودَ اللَّهِ فَلاَ جُنَاحَ عَلَيْهِمَا فِيمَا افْتَدَتْ بِهِ تِلْكَ حُدُودُ اللَّهِ فَلاَ تَعْتَدُوهَا وَمَن يَتَعَدَّ حُدُودَ اللَّهِ فَأُوْلَئِكَ هُمُ الظَّالِمُونَ (البقرة 229) 

وإذا قال لها: أنت طالق، فقوله لها: أنت طالق، يقع بالكلمًة بعينها الطلاق سواء البتة لا يحتاج فيها إلى نية.
