It was conducted qualitatively through a descriptive-comparative approach with primary data obtained from informants including four judges using observation, in-depth interviews, and documentation techniques, subsequently analyzed using an inductive analysis model. Meanwhile, secondary data were retrieved from decision documents. The results showed that the judge decided Case Number 14/Pdt.G/2019/PA.Bitg in fâsakh and Case Number 17/Pdt.G/2019/PA.Bitg in ṭalâq ba‘in sughra through the consideration of the subsidiary petitum. These decisions were observed to have legal consequences on hadhânah and the right of mutual inheritance between children and parents.
