Application for Talaq from Husband:
Under Islamic Law a man can divorce his wife by pronouncing Talaq 3 times. Once accepted and pronounced then the wife will start her Iddath Period. The period of the Iddath lasts for 3 months. If the husband and the wife decide to go for mediation and reconcile then the marriage can continue. If the husband and the wife do not reconcile then the marriage will come to an end.
If the wife is expecting then she will have to wait until the child is born after which the iddath period will start.
-Islamic Divorce (Talaq)
-Dissolution of an Islamic Marriage by the wife. There are three types of Sharia Divorce following a wifes petition:
(a) Khula Divorce – Where the husband and the wife have consummated the marriage and the husband agrees to the divorce;
(b) Tafreeq Divorce – (Dissolution) – Where the husband and the wife have consummated the marriage but the husband refuses to give divorce.
(c ) Faskh Divorce (Annulment) When the marriage is a forced marriage and the marriage has not been consummated.
