11105: Is a divorce done by the judge valid?


Is a divorce (talaaq) or annulment of marriage (faskh) done by a judge in a civil, non-sharee’ah court valid, in a case where the husband or wife approached the court which rules according to man-made laws to deal with the demand or request to end the marriage contract, because there is no Islamic qaadi?

Praise be to Allaah.
