Aceh Shari'a Court Decision No. 27 of 2009

The appellant had requested an additional examination be conducted by the Banda Aceh Shari'a Court (lower court) before the Court handed down its judgment. Content this had taken place, while dismissing the appeal and thereby affirming the lower court's decision to grant the respondent an irrevocable divorce (talak satu bain sughra), the Court noted the following:

  1. the child maintenance fees for the parties' two children deemed appropriate by the lower court were unclear in quantum; and
  2. so too were the maskan (accommodation) and kiswah (clothing) allowances afforded by the appellant to the respondent.

Accordingly, the Court ordered the appellant, pursuant to art 41(c) of Law No. 1 of 1974 on Marriage, and art 149 of the Compilation of Islamic Laws, to pay to the respondent at least IDR 750,000 per child until the children reached 21 years of age, and IDR 3 million for maskan and kiswah.
