Does anyone know how long it takes to get the certificate for decree nisi made absolute?

I have been granted the decree nisi more than 3 months ago, and now my lawyer has already filed the application to make the decree nisi absolute. I have asked the lawyer how long normally it takes to get the certificate, she said this is depends on Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN), it could take up to 1 or 2 months, and even 4-5 months.

Can anyone share from your experiences, how long you wait to get the certificate for decree nisi made absolute? Is there any way to expedite it?

'Bourkey' is right.. very fast.. I was served single petition by my ex wife. On my first hearing, in the high court itself, "we" converted it to a joint petition. It became first and only hearing.. got the certificate 4 months later posted from her lawyers.

As for fees, scout around for quotations. Around RM3,500 - RM5,000. I don't know the actual amount. She paid for everything. I just wash off hands only.

Can the other party file a petition during the 3 months period on decree nisi and do I still get absolute after 3 months?

Please advise.

Any party can file for changes due to unforeseen circumstances. This 3 months is the grace period for cooling off before the divorce is made absolute. The other party can even file to strike it off if she/he did not attend the last hearing.

Your case, was there child custody involved? Or the other spouse is a foreigner? Was there legal representation for the other party?

Can even file for variations even when a Decree Nisi Absolute has been granted years ago.

The divorce is absolute, some Terms and Conditions are not. It is in Family Laws.
