Divorce Law

New MessageDivorce Law (modified 0 times) Kelly
I have been married since October 2004 and I found out that my husband is loving with his colleague currently. He always going out earlier morning at around 6am and back at midnight. Instead of that, my husband always claim that he need to outstation on weekend but actually he is going to company with the gal. We have discussed on this before but he claim that he looking for other gal is because I am not good enough. I am the one that forcing him to looking for another gal in his life.
Since I can't stand with him as he always late come back and not caring of me, I would like to apply for divorce.
But I am very confussing on what is the divorce law in Malaysia.
Kindly pls revert as I really need your help on this.

You can only divorce after 2 years of marriage, either by mutual consent or if one of you sues the other for divorce. You may wish to separate now, or enter into a deed of separation as to the terms of the divorce which you will file after 2 years.

Another option is annulment of the marriage, on the grounds of non-consumation (i.e. you did not sleep together after the marriage) but from your letter I do think this option is open to you.

There are other aspects which need to be considered; what are the assets involved, I assume you have not had (will not have) any children so custody is not an issue, is he providing you with maintenance etc

There are too many questions that need to be asked to ascertain your position in law. You should go and see a lawyer

Kelly, there are a lot of considerations to be taken into account : -

When was the property bought? In whose name? Who actually paid? Did you live there as a couple? What other properties are there? What other expenses did you have during the marriage? Who paid? It doesn't matter who sues for divorce, the principles of property division remain the same whether it is the husband or the wife who petitions for divorce. Like I said earlier, there are too many questions that need to be asked so you should consult a lawyer to get informed advice.
