A Pre-trial Conference is conducted by the Registrar or the Deputy Registrar who will give appropriate directions to file the necessary documents such as affidavits and other documents in Court to prepare for the Hearing of your case. You can download the relevant forms required for filing from our website here.
If there is a possibility of settlement, your case will be referred back to mediation on another date.
You will only be given a Hearing date after you and your spouse have complied with all directions of the Court. In some cases, the Court may order or advise parties to appoint hakam (arbitrators).
Family Support Programmes and Activities
The Court may order or advise parties and/or their children to attend counselling or participate in a family support programme or activity to address or resolve any relationship issues between the parties and their children.
