Experienced Muslim Divorce Lawyer in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island, NY

uit-elkaar-gaan-hoe-werkt-het1Filing for a divorce in New York is no easy matter if you follow the Muslim faith. Not only do state divorce laws apply, but proceedings must be in accordance with Shariah, or Islamic law.  Complications can arise, especially when one couple contends the union was consecrated in another country while the other opposes the marriage’s validity. Contesting divorce cases based on Shariah teachings in an American court can get very tricky. On the one hand, you’ll have a judge who wants to follow state law and on the other, you’ll have the Muslim couple who wants their marriage to be dissolved in accordance with Islamic law.

Several provisions of the marriage contract will come into play during divorce proceedings, including the Islamic divorce certificate, civil court order and dowries, along with traditional proceeding details such as alimony, child support, and property division. Enlisting the support of an experienced Muslim divorce attorney is critical to ensuring the case runs as quickly and smoothly as possible.
