The Marriage Counselling Programme is compulsory, and aims to provide these married couples with a safe and neutral platform to discuss their marriage and understand the impact of divorce.
The programme is for married couples contemplating divorce, couples with marital or relationship problems, or divorcing couples referred by the Syariah Court.
For couples who decide to proceed with divorce and have at least one child below 21 years old, a counsellor will facilitate the Parenting Programme with them. The Parenting Plan prepares the parents for their post-divorce journey, while prioritising their children’s interests. It helps to bring closure to their marriage and re-focus their attention on raising their children.
Individuals will be required to submit their application for divorce or marriage counselling to Syariah Court before attending the Marriage Counselling Programme.
