Divorce process

Under Sharia law, the couple first has to register the divorce case at the Moral and Family Guidance Section at the court. A counselor will then meet the couple and discuss their problems.

If the couple chooses to go through with the divorce, they are given a period of three months to work on their issues (this is known as the Ida’a period). If there has been no reconciliation after the Ida’a period, the couple can go through with the divorce process and file the papers in the court.

    Hello. This can be kind of an “unconventional” question , but have some other visitors asked you how have the menu bar to look such as you’ve gotten it? I also have a blog and am really planning to modify around the theme, however I’m frightened to death to wreck havoc on it for concern of the search engines punishing me. I’m extremely a new comer to all of this …so i am simply not optimistic just how to try to to it all yet. I’ll just keep working on it one day at a time Thanks for any help you can offer here
