Introduction

In the event of divorce at a foreign court, the concerned people must make their divorce  recognized by the Moroccan legislation if the act of divorce comprises provisions having a  financial incidence or may be contrary to the public order. For such cases, there is a special  procedure of execution of the court's decisions, called “exequatur”, which makes the act of  divorce recognized by the Moroccan legislation.


Procedure
