Thanks for your question.


If shereceived a marriage certificate and the marriage was legal in Albania then it will be recognised by UK law. There is no requirement to have the marriage registered in the UK if she was married in Albania.


This means that she is married for UK law purposes and would therefore have to obtain a divorce before she is able to marry in the UK, if indeed that is what she wishes to do.
