A:

Salaam Alaykum, 

For a talaq to be correct has to have the following 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.

Even if you miss out one of them, divorce isnt counted and the nikah is valid.

With thanks and regards,
