Is it permissible to authorise someone else (in the same country as you) to carry out a divorce on your behalf?


Is it permissible for a man to give someone else authorisation for divorce (i.e. giving permission to them to execute a divorce on his behalf) even if that man is present in the same in country ?


There is nothing from the legislation which prevents giving authorisation for divorce, even if the man (who is authorising the divorce) is present in the same country.
