Tanjung Karang Religious Court Decision No. 980 of 2016: Irrevocable Divorce Granted

The parties were married on 4 November 2012 and had one child. The plaintiff submitted that the parties' marriage had become quarrelsome by 2013 because the defendant:

  1. rarely returned home;
  2. had not disclosed his many debts to the plaintiff; and
  3. had been unnecessarily suspicious of the plaintiff for no apparent reason.

The parties had subsequently been separated since 18 March 2015, during which time the defendant had not provided the plaintiff with any financial support. The plaintiff submitted that she had concluded she had no other option but to irrevocably divorce the defendant (talak satu ba'in sughro).

Despite the defendant's absence, the court, pursuant to art 39(2) of Law No. 1 of 1974 on Marriage, 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 on the grounds of ongoing conflict.
