Abstract

This thesis is intended to deal with the conflict problems of recognition of foreign divorces and related issues in the English, Scots and Iraqi conflict of laws. The structure of this thesis is as follows. Chapter 1 outlines the general questions which have a connection with the present thesis subject. Chapters 2 and 3 will examine the jurisdictional and choice of law aspects in divorce cases. Chapters 4 and 5 will deal with the questions of recognition and non-recognition of foreign divorces. Chapter 6 and 7 will consider the effect of recognition of foreign divorces on capacity to marry and financial relief. A review of findings, and recommendations for change, are contained in the conclusion. The main purposes of this thesis are; (1)- A study of divorce conflicts rules in different legal systems, serving to identify the problems and defects (particularly 'limping marriages') which justify the making of change. (2)- To provide a work of reference for the Iraqi lawyer, since it is believed this thesis is the first work of this kind dealing with divorce conflict of laws in Iraq.
