Divorce instruction according to Quran, Surah 65:1-6.

AnswerIn Islam, there is something called Al-Esma which is the right to divorce. Only one spouse could have this and its usually the husband unless she asks for it when they marry. whoever has Al-Esma can divorce by saying the word, I divorce you. Saying it a million times at the same time all counts as one "divorce" attempt. After that, a certain amount of time have to pass (months) before signing the legal papers and go different ways. This time is giving to reconsider. If they decided to go through with the divorce then it becomes final. they can't marry each other again after until she marries another man and devorces again. If they decide not to go through with the devorce, they can choose to stay married. But they only have two chances to take each other back and resume the marrage. If it happens twice, the third time is final whether they like it or not.

After they devorce, The husband pays allomony for the wife only if she's pregnant or they have kids (if she wanted his money I guess she should've stayed married to the guy lol). Also, the assets are not divided between them, whatever you bring in to the marrage you take with you and what you earn during is yours. I guess this system is best to keep the spouses rights during the marriage and also give the marriage every chance to succeed and think long and hard before getting a devorce.

What is marriage legal separtion?

According to Christianity, once you're married, you're married for life. Christianity doesn't recognize or condone divorce, so if you marry, divorce, and remarry, according to Christianity it is adultery. However, the law is more reasonable than Christianity and does recognize divorce (not in all countries though). So the law will recognize that you are separated and your official status for tax and other purposes will legally be "Single", but the Catholic religion says you're still married.

How do you file for a divorce in the US by the Islamic way?

This question is contradictory. By definition, US law is not the same as Islamic law. To have your marriage recognised in the US, you must be able to be declared as married according to US law. Similarly, your divorce must be recognised under US law, whose requirements are separate to those of Islamic law.Divorce law obviously varies from state to state, but at a minimum you will have to contact your local registry office and ask them for a certificate of divorce. You will be able to submit evidence of your divorce under Islamic law as part of that request, but you will still most likely have to fill out a form.

Filed married on income tax but only common law do you need a divorce because you have broken up?

Many people misunderstand what a common law marriage is. The conventional wisdom is that it is just a polite term for shacking up together. Few states recognize common law marriages. If you happen to be a resident of one of those states and you meet the state's requirements for a common law marriage, you are legally married just as much as if you had gone before a preacher or a justice of the peace and said "I do." A common law marriage is not just a temporary living arrangement until you get bored with it and decide to split up. It is a legally binding marriage. And there is no such thing as a common law divorce. If you have actually entered into a common law marriage in a state where it is recognized, you stay married until you get a divorce decree from a judge. If you break up and don't get a divorce, you will be committing bigamy if you get married again and your new marriage will be null and void. For tax purposes, you can file as married only if you are in a legally recognized marriage (including a legally recognized common law marriage). If you didn't enter into the marriage in a state where common law marriage is recognized, you cannot file as married even if you happen to think of yourself as married (or common law married). If you were not legally married (common law or otherwise), you need to amend the tax returns where you filed as married. If you had a legal common law marriage, then the only way to end it is with a divorce and you need to keep filing as a married person (either jointly or separately) until you have such a divorce.
