Cirebon Religious Court Decision No. 797 of 2014: Irrevocable Divorce Granted

The parties were married on 2 December 2013 but had no children. The plaintiff submitted that, since March 2014, the parties' marriage had become quarrelsome. This was because the defendant:

  1. had failed to provide for his family; and
  2. often came home in the middle of the night for no apparent reason.

Problems escalated and, by April 2014, the parties had separated. Familial efforts to make the parties reconcile had been in vain and the plaintiff requested that the Court grant her an irrevocable divorce (talak satu ba'in sughra).

Despite the defendant's absence from court, on the grounds of ongoing conflict between the parties, the court acceded to the plaintiff's request, pursuant to art 19(f) of Government Regulation No. 9 of 1975, and art 116(f) of the Compilation of Islamic Laws.
