Khula is when a married woman initiates divorce proceedings. This is usually done for valid reasons such as immoral behaviour, mistreatment from the husband, or if he doesn’t provide maintenance.

A woman is advised to abstain from seeking khula on baseless reasons and to exert necessary efforts to maintain a harmonious and peaceful relationship with her spouse with mutual respect and love. In the unfortunate case that the marriage becomes irreconcilable and the husband doesn’t issue talaq, she may apply for Khula.

For more information on the procedure, please download the application form below.

Please do not apply without reading the procedures of Khula, and be aware that a divorce is not guaranteed once the application is approved. Please note that a Khula case takes on average 6-9 months, and there is no ‘fast-track’ method.

Please do not make any payments before the application is approved.
