Muslim Divorce

Muslims divorcing in the United States may encounter unique challenges and circumstances that require culturally competent legal representation. Maliha is often asked to educate Judges and other lawyers regarding the nuances of these issues in Illinois and remains on the forefront of legal developments. The religious and cultural issues of Mehr, Talaq, family involvement, and personal property disputes regarding wedding presents are not unique to Muslim families, but it is important to retain a lawyer that understands the issues within a cultural and religious context while advocating within an otherwise secular legal system. Maliha has experience and a network of professionals that are well-versed in these issues, including religious leaders to help with mediation and therapists who are well-versed in the nuances and unique experiences of divorcing as a person of faith.
