Online Divorce an Analytical Study of Jordan’s E-Transaction and Personal Status Laws

Published on: 2019-04-09


The study took place to assess the legal position on online divorce in Jordan as well as the country’s E-transaction and Personal Status Laws. That spread of the Internet and different kinds of services made possible by it has enabled users to take different legal actions, including divorce, through the Internet whether they accord with Jordan’s E-transaction and Personal Status Laws or not. The research concluded that Jordanian legislators have recognized this kind of divorce in legislation despite the contradiction between Jordan’s E-transaction and Personal Status Laws. The researcher recommends to Jordan’s legislators to amend the Personal Status Law to fix this contradiction.
