Divorce Agreement and Settlement in Malaysia
(Updated in June 2022)
Going through the divorce process can be daunting and exhausting. This could be due to the reason that either party is willing to compromise or unwilling to “surrender”.
You might also come across questions such as:
- Who should have the custody of my children?
- What is the fair amount I should pay for maintenance for my children / wife?
- How do we divide our matrimonial assets?
For a joint petition divorce, both parties must agreed on all the essential terms before you seek or hire a divorce lawyer in Malaysia.
If there is no agreement on any term, the only option left is to file a single divorce petition in Malaysia and both will have to submit to the High Court of Malaysia to decide on the outcome of the case.
More often than not, this will cause extreme stress to the both parties going through divorce having to expose the “ugly truth” in the Court. This is because you need to prove your ground for divorce. In other words, you need at least a reason to divorce. Commonly, one of the spouse may allege the unreasonable behaviour of the other party as the reason for divorce.
Moreover, a contested single petition can go on for 12 months or more depending on the complexity and issues in dispute between married couple. Not only it’ll consume more time, but you can expect a more expensive legal fees as well.
