Republic of Ireland Law Questions Answered by Experts
No, your second marriage will not be recognised in Ireland, as polygamous marriages are not recognised under Irish law. Your second wife will not be able to apply for a spousal visa.
I understand . but will this be Okay .. If my first wife will come to Ireland and I will have Spouse Visa nd my Second wife will be on Entrepreneur visa will this effect . or consider as illigle as my both marriage is valid which was held outside ireland . in the country where polygamous marriages allowed,
i have read this case online can you study and advice how they approved his case ...
I am really confuse b.c some places it is mentioned it is okay as long as it was marriage outside where polygamous marriage were allowed ,
need your support .in this ...
Yyour second wife is certainly free to Ireland independently of you, on an entrepreneur visa. Your marriage will not be recognised here - you will be "strangers in law".
The case that you mention was a case where the husband was asking the Irish state to recognise his polygamous marriage for the purposes of an immigration decision, and to grant immigration permission for a second wife to join him here as his spouse. The High Court has stated on a number of occasions that Ireland should recognise foreign marriages as long as they are considered valid in the country where they took place - with the exception of polygamous marriages.
However, none of this will prevent your second wife from being granted immigration permission on her own, independent, basis. Your relationship with her child will not be recognised.
All this means is that, for the purposes of a residency or visa application, and for any other legal purpose in Ireland, yoru second marriage will not be recognised in Ireland. This will not prevent your second wife from making an independent application for residency, and there is certainly nothing to prevent you from living as a family. However this will be considered a private arrangement and it will not be recognised in law.
it is good but if irish Government will know that my Second wife is marrried by islamic Relgion and living with me will this effect or count as a criminal law...
where we did not request any benefits by Irish government...
This will not be a criminal matter unless you attempt to marry your wife under the civil laws here (that would be bigamy). If your second wife simply comes to join your household, with an independent immigration permission, of her own free will, and if you do not attempt to have her recognised as your spouse for any purpose, then you will not be committing any crime.
Please rate my answer positively so that I may get paid.
all is good accept the worse thing My second wife's child will not be recognized by me ... is there any solution for this in irish law... ?
