I am a 29 years old female residing in Karachi, Pakistan. I applied for Khula from my ex husband in August 2012 but before the judgement of the
khula took place, he sent me a divorce deed on the 11th of September 2012. He also registered the divorce deed at the union council on the 24th of September 2012. We have a two years old son as well whose present custody is with me. I'm scheduled to get remarried now and want to keep my son with me.
The problem is, even after the completion of 90 days my ex-husband hasn't gone to the union council for the confirmation of the divorce and that's why I haven't received the divorce certificate issued by the union council. My ex-husband is blackmailing me urging that he will only go for the confirmation if I surrender my son's custody to him, which I don't want at any cost; because my ex husband is an alcoholic and my son is a minor aged only two. I have gotten the true copy of the divorce deed from the family court with the family court stamp on it.
As per Islamic law my 90 days Iddat period is over, so:
- Can I get remarried now?
- Will I loose the custody of my son after getting remarried?
