This study examines the economic provision on women post-divorce, especially in the case of contested divorce (cerai gugat). Hypothesis from this research is, when a woman files a divorce case, most of the times she does not get her economic rights. If anything, in the document of judge’s verdicts, normatively women get her rights; however, at the level of execution, the verdicts are not implemented as they should be. From this background, this study is intended to explore further to what extent the women gain their economic rights after divorce, and what resources they have to struggle for it.
