Dr Nik Noriani Nik Badlishah Legal Aid Fund

The Fund is created to assist Muslim women (residing in Malaysia) who approach the Telenisa Legal Clinic as clients, struggling to pay the filing fees for their cases at the Syariah Court. Where related, The Fund may also be disbursed for cases in the Civil Courts (e.g.: domestic violence and inheritance claims where there may be concurrent claims in the Syariah and Civil Courts related to the same facts).

Cases covered by The Fund include the following (please note that the list below is non-exhaustive):
i) Syariah civil matters particularly those under Islamic Family Laws, such as:
  • Divorce
  • Marriage (eg: wali hakim application)
  • Matrimonial property
  • Alimony
  • Mut’ah
  • Wife maintenance and arrears of maintenance
  • Child maintenance and arrears of maintenance
  • Custody
ii) Syariah criminal matters, such as:
  • Khalwat
  • Fasting
  • Prayers
iii) Inheritance matters.

Please spread the news on the availability of this Fund for it to benefit those in need. For your information, the maximum claim for the filing fees is RM500 per person. Clients interested are to contact us through Telenisa (+603 7960 8802) and for any further inquiries, please email us at
