Girl looking for her own suitor

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I would like to know if a divorcee needs a wali for her second nikah or is it allowed for her to make nikah without a wali or the walis permission?


A: It is shameful and against the Sunnah for a girl to look for her own suitor and get married without the consent of her parents or guardians.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
