Saudi women to receive text messages when divorced

A new measure which has been approved by the Justice Ministry is that Saudi women will be notified by the court through a text message when they get divorced.

This came into effect from Sunday. The regulation is to curb cases of men secretly ending their marriages without informing their wives. Now through this provision, the women will be notified and they will also be able to view documents relating to the termination of their marriage contract through the Ministry’s website.
