Cirebon Religious Court Decision No. 509 of 2014: Irrevocable Divorce Granted

The parties were married on 9 February 2005 but had no children. The plaintiff submitted that, by October 2009, the parties' marriage had become quarrelsome because the defendant:

  1. had failed to provide for his family;
  2. would physically beat the plaintiff.

Problems escalated and, by September 2013, the parties had separated after the defendant left the matrimonial home. Familial efforts to make the parties reconcile had been in vain and the plaintiff requested that the court grant him a revocable divorce (talak satu ba'in sughra).

On the grounds of ongoing conflict between the parties, the court, pursuant to art 39(2) of Law No. 1 of 1974, art 19(f) of Government Regulation No. 9 of 1975, and art 116(f) of the Compilation of Islamic Laws, acceded to the plaintiff's request.
