not islamically divoce

Question ID: 31624

If a husband and wife have not lived together for a period of 15 years, though by south african law divorced, but no islamic verbal divorce has taken place, what is the process of talaaq?
If it does take place, what is the duty of the exhusband towards the exwife and children, and maintaining them. If they havent lived together for that time period, has the talaaq automatically occured, or does it have to be done in a structured way with two witnesses?What can be done if the husband does not want to address this at all, or avoids this and does not take calls, but does not want to come back as a husband, and has someone else.

No Talaaq has taken place.
Talaaq has to be issued, witnesses not necessary. Go to your Jamiat, care line, crises centre.
