A court should officially inform both the man and the woman about the divorce order issued by it, according to the latest regulations issued by the Ministry of Justice of Saudi Arabia. The new regulations were sent to the judges in all the courts in the Kingdom after the approval of Justice Minister Abdullah Al-Asheikh. The court should also deliver a copy of the order to the divorcing husband and the divorced wife. Another ruling in the divorce regulations is that a husband, who intends to take back his former wife, should submit the original document used in the divorce. This is also applicable in cases of women who are being prohibited from marrying by their male relatives. The new regulations also said that the court should verify if a debtor has movable and immovable properties before jailing him. The judges should also order for inquiries regarding his properties with due consideration of the information supplied by the creditors.
The judges have also been directed to use precise and candid language without resorting to embellishment while issuing judgments.
