One form of Aceh’s privileges is that it reinforces customary law and is formalized through regulation so that to occupy a position in a certain customary institution, they must have formal requirements and with these formal conditions, they do not necessarily understand customary law. This paper is intended to explain the efforts made by formal customary institutions, which have limited customary law capacity, in resolving cases so that the situation will recover (restorative justice). Data for this article were obtained through direct observation in the field of resolving cases handled by traditional institutions within the Gayo community known as Sarak Opat. The results of the study show that in dispute resolution, formal customary institutions always involve non-formal institutions that do not sit in formal adat institutions, because non-formal institutions have a better understanding of customary law than formal customary institutions. It is recommended that the regulations that have been drafted should consider the flexibility of customary law for the formal requirements of people sitting in the sarak opat institution as formal adat institutions.
