Aceh Shari'a Court Decision No. 41 of 2008

The appellant sought to challenge the decision of the Banda Aceh Shari'a Court (lower court), which had granted the respondent an irrevocable divorce (talak satu ba'in shughra).

While the Court slightly amended the formulation of the lower court's decision, for all intents and purposes, it did not alter the effect of the decision. It affirmed the decision to grant an irrevocable divorce, as well as the decision to place one of the parties' children in the care of the respondent. The other three children were free to choose with which parent they would live, while the appellant was ordered to pay child maintenance on a monthly basis until the children were of age.
