Female Citizen Wins All Her Financial Rights Related To Marriage And Divorce
The Personal Status Section of the Cassation Court cancelled the verdict of the Court of Appeals that deprived a female citizen of all her financial rights related to marriage and divorce. The court instead issued irrevocable divorce and obliged the husband to pay the woman all her financial rights related to marriage and divorce. Details of the case as presented by defense lawyer, Attorney Haya Al-Saqar Al-Dowaisari, revealed the woman filed for divorce and demanded that she retains all her rights. The lawyer affirmed the woman was legally married but the husband had the habit of beating and insulting her. The husband caused material and moral damages to the woman as he stopped supporting her needs which prompted her to file the lawsuit against him. Al-Saqer affirmed the verdict of the Appeals Court mistakenly did injustice to her client as the fault was with the husband. She presented medical reports showing injuries she suffered at the hands of the husband.
