Registration of Marriage in India which is already registered in foreign country
I am a muslim indian male have taken Moroccan citizen as my second wife. (My 1st marriage is happily intact).
My second marriage was registered abroad and our marriage contract/certificate issued by foreign country is already counter attested by Indian Consulate in that country. My second wife has got spouse visa (Entry Visa X) to India based on that marriage contract and she is currently in India.
I need to register this marriage in India to get her local identity card and oci in future after 2 years.
Need guidance whether my foreign marriage contract would be registered directly with state marriage registrar or i have to do marriage again under (Shariya law- Nikahnama) and then register it with state marriage authority.
I know polygamy marriage cannot be solemnised under Special Marriage Act, but is there any restriction to register already solemnised marriage under SMA ? What shall be timeline for it ?
With the above case kindly recommend even if any such additional registration necessary and what documents we can make for wife in India.
I request that, someone who has already dealt with similar matter to kindly take up my case.
