What to Do If You’re Not Sure Your Spouse Is Ready for Divorce

This may sound odd but it does happen. Both husband and wife may not be in talking terms for years. Or they may be physically separated for many years. And they simply do not communicate anymore. Until either the husband or the wife decided to end the marriage by proposing for a divorce. So, what to do if you’re not sure your spouse is ready for divorce?

In such circumstances, it is important to first decide whether if divorce is a necessary step to take. If you are definitely certain about taking this step, it is best to first approach your spouse and communicate with him or her to propose on the divorce. This is crucial to ensure that both parties can come to an agreement if possible before you engage a divorce lawyer to file for the divorce on a mutual basis to save time and cost for divorce. This is also known as a joint petition for divorce.

On the other hand, if you and your spouse are not in talking terms or if both of you are separated for years, it is advisable to engage a divorce lawyer first to propose the divorce terms on your behalf. This is to ensure that your divorce lawyer is able to reach settlement in between you and your spouse in order to file for a joint petition for divorce which is usually faster and more affordable.

In the event if a mutual divorce term cannot be reached or if there is no mutual consent to the divorce, do not worry. You may still be able to get a divorce by way of filing a single petition for divorce in Malaysia. Essentially, parties are still required to go through marriage counselling with the Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN) first before one can file for divorce under the law though there are exceptions available.

In short, it is advisable to first seek for divorce settlement through a divorce lawyer to initiate a joint petition for divorce in Malaysia. This is not only to save time but it is also affordable since filing a single petition for divorce is generally more costly and requires more time to complete due to the complexity of the procedure.
