I have registered my marriage but I never have any customary marriage, wedding dinner and honeymoon. My husband has consulted his lawyer who said that the divorce can only take place after two years of marriage registration. I would like to know about the process of the divorce and the time it will take. Is there any exception that the divorce can take place before the completion of first two years? I did not see him since early this year and I just want to get out of this marriage as soon as possible. We do not have any car and house. How much will the lawyer fee cost? Can someone recommend a good lawyer?

Thanks.

I just came across some readings about marriage annulment. Is it applicable in Malaysia? I have consulted a few lawyers but they said that I can only file for divorce two years after the ROM date. I have been waiting for one year now. The marriage is not consummated. Can someone enlighten me or recommend me any lawyers who handle annulment cases?

Thanks.

70. A marriage which takes place after the appointed date shall
be voidable on the following grounds only, that is to say:

(a) that the marriage has not been consummated owing to the
incapacity of either party to consummate it;
(b) that the marriage has not been consummated owing to the
wilful refusal of the respondent to consummate it;

This means that

If your husband does not want to have sex with you, then you can apply to the High Court for an annulment.
If your husband cannot have sex with you b'cos something wrong with him and he never had sex with you, then you can apply to the High Court for an annulment.

If you did not want to have sex with your husband, then you cannot apply to the High Court for an annulment because you are the petitioner, not the respondent.
If you did not want to have sex with your husband, the only way to get an annulment is to ask your husband to apply to the High Court for an annulment.
If your husband refuse, then you cannot do anything.

If both of u agree to divorce,after 2 years go for joint petition( each person pay half)which will cost u around RM3-4k and within 3 months settle. If one person not agree, then go for single petition and both bear their own legal fees. Might take up to 2 years.
