Joint Petition 

When to submit a Joint  Petition?

If both of you can agree on all issues, ie, custody of children, access to the children, maintenance for spouse and children, and division of your joint assets, you can file a joint petition. The Joint Petition is the fastest and easiest way to get divorce in Malaysia. 

We provide fixed legal fees for Joint Petition which is much less than the Single Petition.

A Joint Petition is governed by Section 52 of the Law Reform (Marriage and Divorce) Act 1976. 

Q & A

How much is the legal fees?

We provide fixed legal fees for Joint Petition. Generally, a joint petition's legal fee is cheaper than a single petition's (without mutual consent). 

How long does it take for a divorce matter to be completed?

Generally, a joint petition divorce matter takes 6 to 9 months to be completed. The actual time needed for may vary in each and every single case depending on the following factors:

1. The date of hearing granted by the court (whether its early or late).
2. The complexity of the case.
3. A unilateral petition divorce (without mutual consent) matter takes more time to be completed. The divorce matter could take more time if it is contested.
