Abstract

The purpose of this study is to analyze the solution of divorce cases among the people of Aceh and to study the best practices that can be learned from Malaysia in order to create a model of a divorce case that can be practised in Aceh. This qualitative study used the interview method which was conducted in Aceh and Malaysia to learn how similar cases were resolved in Malaysia, while the secondary data was obtained through a library study. The study concludes that the Customary Court has jurisdiction to resolve divorce cases, involving either registered or unregistered marriage. However, the Customary Court failed to distinguish between criminal and civil trial cases, which led to all cases of divorce claims being processed and subsequently allowed, but the decision was only a fine. However, the Syariah court resolved divorce cases involving only registered marriages as well as cases which impose imprisonment. This study proposes the need to create a Comprehensive Divorce Case Settlement (PKPK) model which shows that divorce cases in the Customary Court can be brought before the Syariah Court by the leader of the village who is entrusted to resolve the matter.
