Kolaka Religious Court Decision No. 244 of 2016: Irrevocable Divorce

The parties were married on 8 January 2007 and had one child aged 9. Their marriage had been harmonious until 2013, after which it had become quarrelsome because of the defendant's:

  1. frequent unwarranted jealousy and accusations that the plaintiff was having an extra-marital affair; and
  2. inability to provide the plaintiff with sufficient financial allowance.

Problems escalated in July 2015, which resulted in the parties separating. The plaintiff produced two witnesses who provided information that corroborated with her submissions. Despite the defendant's absence, the court, pursuant to art 19(f) of Government Regulation No. 9 of 1975, and art 116(f) of Compilation of Islamic Laws, acceded to the plaintiff's request for an irrevocable divorce (talak satu ba'in sughra) on the grounds of ongoing conflict.
