Divorcing in Malaysia

Hello everyone,

Reaching the decision to seek divorce can be hard. Filing the papers as an expat in Malaysia can be as taxing since a good grasp of legislations is needed and the process can prove to be tedious.

Where and how do you apply for a divorce in Malaysia? How long does it take for the process to be completed?

If the couple has children, which measures can be taken in order to protect their interests?

Which procedures should be completed so that the divorce is legally recognized in the country of origin?

How is divorce viewed in Malaysia?

Being away from one's home country and loved ones, what advice do have for staying strong emotionally and mentally in this situation?

Thanks for sharing your experience.



It's hard, I know. I'm also a foreign spouse away from all support and my husband is violent. I don't know what to advice you (I live in Singapore) but I wamt you to know that you deserve a better life. I think it's important, but extremely difficult, to let go of the anger, and the intention of hurting the other party. Support anyone you know that is also caught in similar situation, a disfunction relationship. You'll see light at the end of the tunnel.

Lots of love!!!
