Remarrying Husband After Divorce

Q:

AOA. I got married in 2012 in another country. When my husband moved to the US we had to get married again. Shortly after that I had filed for divorce in the US and wanted to also dissolve the nikkah in the other country. I was in university at the time and couldn't leave so I asked my husband to file the divorce there. Now after 4 years we have reconciled. Can I marry my husband again? Thanks for your help.

A:

Waalaykum Salaam,

From your query I get to understand that your Talaq was not worded out Islamically. Merely filling for your divorce does not actualize it, hence you are still Islamically married to one another.
