n the knowledge of second marriage, first wife went under sever depression and had regular panic attacks and blood pressure spikes for 5 days. on fifth day she tried to take lot of medince in her hand for suiside. on this husband agreed to sing on the 3 talaq paper and did not give verbal talaq but signed on the 3 talaq paper. when signing he was under pressure for either to sign or go for public humiliation. Is the talaq done in this way is valid though he had no intention to do the talaq

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب حامداومصليا

The utterance of three clear Talaqs will occur even if the husband is forced to say it or it was signed and written by him.

However, if the husband does not sign on any written document or he fails to give clear consent for the court to go ahead with the divorce, but the court divorces on his behalf of his wife against his will, then this does not constitute a valid Islamic divorce.

So in your case three Talaq has occurred.

ويقع طلاق كل زوج اذاكان بالغا عاقلاسواء كان حراأوعبداطائعاأومكرهاكذا في الجوهرة النيرة....واذا قال الرجل لامرأته أنت طالق ولايعلم معنى قوله أنت طالق فانه يقع الطلاق الخ

(الفتاوى العلمكيرية ج.1 ص.353 رشيدية)

كذالك كل كتاب لم يكتبه بخطه ولم يمله بنفسه لايقع به الطلاق اذالم يقر انه كتابه

(الدرالمختارمع ردالمحتار ج.3 ص.247, مطلب في الطلاق بالكتابة ,سعيد)

And Allah knows best
