I have been separated from my husband for a year, we have 3 kids together, I left the house when I was pregnant with my last. We didn't speak or see each other for months then I decided to have a sheikh talk to him. I was angry and at the time wanted a divorce. He filed for a legal divorce (non Islamic), which has been dismissed in the court for failure to follow up. We are in the process of a legal separation from my home country (again not Islamic). He agreed to the separation but signed the wrong form, I signed but it has not been finalized, I want to work things out but he's giving me mixed signals. We have not seen each other since the day I left.
Are we divorced in Islam (we are Sunni) since he didn't utter the words "I divorce you"? But when I ask him he says we're divorced.
