decree nisi absolute
How long it takes to make the decree nisi absolute?

New Messagedecree nisi absolute (modified 0 times) Mike
Is anyone knows that how long it takes to get the certificate for decree nisi made absolute?

I have been granted the decree nisi since > 3 months ago, and now my lawyer already filed the application to make the decree nisi absolute. I have asked the lawyer how long normally it takes to get the certificate, she said this is depends on Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN), it could take up to 1 or 2 months, and even 4-5 months.

Can anyone share from your experiences, how long you wait to get the certificate for decree nisi made absolute? Is there any way can expedite it?

Thank you

It has nothing to do with JPN.
Once there is no objection for 3 months, you or your lawyer can get the absolute certificate from the court admin in 4 working days.

I think your lawyer is lazy, that's why giving excuses about JPN.

Thanks vkpc for your prompt response.

Yes, my lawyer keep avoiding my calls and mails, seem like the lawyer is really lazy.

I have been suffered for so long to get the divorce settled, just hope i can get the absolute certificate asap.

Can you please guide me what is the procedure, or who or where can I get the certificate by myself? The court admin you are refering is from where? What are the document i need to prepare?

Thanks again!!

Since you don't know the format of the absolute dekri nisi, you may need to go twice.
When you reach the Shah Alam High Court, ask for the filing counter for High Court.

At the filing counters, ask for the format of the absolute dekri nisi.
If they ask about your lawyer, say your lawyer too busy, asked you to come do yourself.

Get the format, ask them how many copies they need including all the CTCs. (Certified True Copies)
Also ask about the fees.
Go home a prepare the Absolute Dekri Nisi on a PC based on that format and print out the copies needed.
Follow exactly every capital, underline and boldings.

At the bottom of the Dekri should be your name and address in the place of the law firm's name and address.

Go back to the Court filing counter and pass to them and pay the fees. (should be less than RM 50)
Tell them you will come back to collect the sealed (stamped) copy and CTCs in 4 days time.

vkpc. thanks a lot for the information.

I will go to the court to get this done by myself then. But my lawyer said she has already submitted the application, can I still go to apply again? Will the court reject my application?

Already few weeks since she said she has submitted the application, now she told me she is still waiting JPN to send her the copy.

Where you act in your own interests as an unrepresented litigant after having a lawyer on the record, you ought to inform the court and your lawyer of what you are doing. If you don't then your ill informed unskilled attempt at achieving what you want to achieve will not only embarass you it will also absolve your lawyer of any misconduct from failing to serve you properly.

Do so at your own peril. Discharge your lawyer first. At least then your liability as an unrepresented litigant will count for good when sekeing leave to undo what you have screwed up on your own.

Now perhaps you will understand why Nasi Kandar and Nasi Padang to get your attention. Procedure is one thing. It is the substative law that matters in the end.

Why not? Anybody can go get a CTC copy of the decree by paying for it.
Your wife also can get another copy from the court admin if she needs to marry again.

Will the court reject my application?
The court is not longer involved, it is only registrar (admin) work now.
