Marriage certificate for second marriage without divorce decree
I am Muslim and I have given three talak notices in three consecutive months last year via my lawyer to my first wife and she filed 498A against me and our case is in court.
meanwhile I recently got married in my village and applied for the marriage certificate to the local panchayat with Nikahnaama.
The Panchayat people and Talati are saying that you will not get the marriage certificate until your divorce case is over and I have to present the settlement or divorce decree to them in order to obtain the marriage certificate.
Now my question is that if I can legally marry a second time then why I cannot receive the legal marriage certificate so that my second wife can change her name and I can also have legal documents providing that she is my current wife and I can apply for joint account in Bank and change our both passports as well.
Please let me know what should I do and how can I obtain a legal marriage certificate?
