BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – Saudi courts will be notifying women on divorce rulings via text message, the UAE-based The National publication reported on Sunday.

According to the publication, Saudi Justice Minister Sheikh Waleed bin Mohammed Al Samaani said the text message system will help make legal proceedings in divorce more transparent.

“It’s a simple solution to the problem of women sometimes not being aware of the legal procedures that are taking place in the divorce,” Abdulla bin Ateeq, a divorce lawyer in Saudi Arabia told The National.

As per Saudi law, a man can file for divorce by making a verbal statement of intent and getting the divorce verified by a court; however, the woman’s consent is not required.
