Divorce by Joint Petition & its requirement 

.

In our article today, we would like to share about the preliminary requirements for applying Divorce by way of Joint Petition in Malaysia.

.

The first requirement

.

The husband and wife must be married with one another for more than two (2) years.

.

Second requirement

.

Although the parties do not need to provide the reason(s) that lead to the breakdown of their marriage, however, a consensus must be reached between the parties in relation to the custody, control and care of their child (or children); alimony (if any), and the distribution of their marital asset(s).

.

In summary, these are the questions that the parties need to discuss before looking for a divorce lawyer:-

.

  • Who the child going to live with in the future?
  • What kind of circumstances the other party has the right to visit or access their child
  • Before the child attains the age of majority, who has the power to make the decision(s) in relation to the child’s education, religion, and asset.
  • How to distribute the parties’ matrimonial properties?
  • Who will be paying the child’s daily expenses, education fees, and medical fees?
  • Does the husband need to pay alimony to the wife after divorce?

.

When both parties have come to a consensus in relation to the questions above, their divorce lawyer would insert all the agreed terms into the Court Order, so to prevent the parties from having a dispute after the divorce.

.

Documents that are needed for applying for divorce (by Joint Petition): 

.

  • photocopy of the husband’s and wife’s IC
  • photocopy of the marriage certificate
  • photocopy of the child’s identification document (birth certificate/MyKid
  • Relevant documents of their matrimonial asset(s)
  • photostat of medical report issued by a general practitioner (in relation to the health condition of the children)

.

If the parties cannot come to an agreement, and one of the party still intend to divorce, he/she would have to file a Unilateral Petition in the High Court.
