Quran 65.1

O Prophet, when you [Muslims] divorce women, divorce them for [the commencement of] their waiting period and keep count of the waiting period, and fear Allah, your Lord. Do not turn them out of their [husbands’] houses, nor should they [themselves] leave [during that period] unless they are committing a clear immorality. And those are the limits [set by] Allah . And whoever transgresses the limits of Allah has certainly wronged himself. You know not; perhaps Allah will bring about after that a [different] matter.


It is for us to discuss your matter briefly and to provide you with a general overview. There will be no review of documents during the free first consultation.

Yes, there will be charges but rest assured our charges are reasonable.

We will try our best to accommodate your financial needs. We offer fixed fee arrangements and even instalment payments for our services. 

However, if you are truly unable to afford the services of our lawyers, we will recommend that you approach the legal aid bureau or law society pro bono services to see if you qualify.

In situations such as this, you must bring 2 male witnesses and there is a specific procedure when doing so. For the womenfolk, there is a need to proceed via cerai taklik or fasakh. In our experience, cases like these often take very long in court as parties don’t know how to do substituted service or move on to the next stage. You may also watch one of our videos on the problems you may face here.

The Court can make an order for a hakam to be appointed. It is not necessary for this to be a consent order.

Generally, it may take between four months to a year.

You may appeal to the Appeals Board within a month from the date on which the Order was made.

Yes, but it will have an impact on the iddah period.

You may proceed to the Syariah Court and obtain a Certificate of Revocation. It is best to check with the court as sometimes there may be a need for you to remarry.

Quran 65.2

And when they have [nearly] fulfilled their term, either retain them according to acceptable terms or part with them according to acceptable terms. And bring to witness two just men from among you and establish the testimony for [the acceptance of] Allah . That is instructed to whoever should believe in Allah and the Last day. And whoever fears Allah – He will make for him a way out
