2. The only form of divorce which can be recognised there is the traditional bare form. If a bare talaq divorce takes place in Azad Kashmir, it will be recognised in the UK only if:

If a bare talaq divorce takes place elsewhere in Pakistan or Bangladesh, it will not be recognised in the UK.

3. Relevant details will have to be included on the application form and the relevant documents provided.
4. It should be mentioned to your immigration solicitor and the application should reflect the circumstances correctly.
Prior to marriage, you should establish that the divorce is valid in the UK.
If the divorce is not valid in the UK, you would have to assess your avaiable options.
