Will my wife take everything if we get divorced?

I am not working to raise of the children. If I get divorced, where will I go?

Many questions and many fears come to the mind of the man and the woman when the problems increase between them.

We do not intend by this article to help couples get divorced. We merely intend to make them aware of their rights and duties before the law, so that when they make a decision, they are consciously taking it.

Does the divorce really entitles the wife to everything and what are the wife’s rights after the divorce?

We first need to distinguish between the four types of divorce:

Khula’

Revocable divorce during theIddahor ordinary divorce

Revocable divorce by waiver of matrimonial rights

Irrevocable divorcewith new contract and new dowry

Khula’:

Khulatakes place via a lawsuit filed by the wife before the court, and she waives away her deferred dowry, the consideration for iddah, and the consideration for consummating the marriage. The list of movables AKA the list, if any remains the right of the wife.

What is meant by the consideration for iddah, the consideration for consummating the marriage and the deferred dowry?

The consideration for iddahis the sum that the divorcer pays upon the divorce, and it is for each month the months of the iddah, usually three months, except in case of pregnancy.

The consideration for consummating the marriage is an amount paid by the divorcer that ranges between two to ten years from the alimony determined by the court and determined according to the period of marriage.

The two types of considerations are determined by the court based upon the social level, the husband’s income, and other criteria.

The last thing which is the deferred dowry is the deferred dowry declared in the marriage certificate that the spouses agreed upon at the time of the marriage.

Revocable divorce by waiver of matrimonial rights:

The revocable divorce by waiver of matrimonial rights is an ordinary divorce that is agreed upon between the two spouses and the wife waives away the consideration for iddah, the consideration for consummating the marriage and her deferred dowry. As for the list of movables, if any, it has to be agreed upon separately as it is a civil right and has nothing to do with the family law where the wife can claim it after the divorce by waiver of matrimonial rights.

Revocable divorce during the Iddah or ordinary divorce:

Revocable divorce is the divorce that takes place between the spouses at the Maazoun and in this type of divorce; the wife has the right to claim her consideration for iddah, her consideration for consummating the marriage and her deferred dowry.In this case, those mentioned considerations are agreed upon between the two parties
