Before embarking on the rules of engagement between a client and an attorney, it is essential to point out that the kingdom of Saudi Arabia does not have written legislation on family law. Being an Islam country, the judicial system bases its decision about family matters on the dictates of Islam rules and regulations (Alkhalawi, 2015). Generally, the Islam tradition favors men when it comes to a family dispute. In the country, men can unilaterally seek to divorce their wives and for a long time, the tradition did not require the man to notify the wife about the same (Alasmi, 2015). A man can divorce the wife without probable cause. However, the rules are more stringent on women. A woman must raise serious issues such as mistreatment for the court to grant them a divorce. Therefore, it is without a doubt that the system undermines the status of women in a marriage. Up until 2019 January, women did not have to be informed about a pending divorce matter (Alasmi, 2015). The court in 2019 made it a mandatory requirement to notify women about such matters. In this case, the status of women in the country might have informed the advocate’s act of engaging the client in the court instead of seeking an alternative private space.
