Thank you for your question

Please check the following link for your answer:


According to the Islamic laws, a marriage only takes place if a Nikah is recited. A court marriage is not counted as marriage in Islam.
Also, a virgin girl cannot marry without her father or paternal grandfather’s permission. Hence, if your Nikah did not meet the above mentioned conditions then it is invalid.

likewise, Divorce cannot be done by just signing papers. It has its own conditions:

1- You have to have two believing adults as your witness
2- The woman has to be clean of her menstrual period and also shouldn’t be pregnant
3- Proper Arabic words need to be uttered for the act to take place.
