Khula is possible without visiting Pakistan

According to section 18 of the West Pakistan Family Courts Act 1964 a pardanasheen lady can be represented through her attorney in the family court. According to the judgments of Superior Courts of Pakistan "every lady is presumed to be pardanasheen lady". Hence the interpretation of Section 18 of the Family Courts Act 1964 is that every lady can be represented through attorney in the family court.

There is no discrimination in law. Hence male litigants can also be represented through attorneys in the family courts of Pakistan. In practice mostly it happens that women are represented through their real brothers or fathers in the family courts.

Similarly if a person is residing outside Pakistan, it is not mandatory for such person to visit Pakistan. He/she can appoint an attorney and can be represented through that person in the Family Courts of Pakistan.

How to deal with Poor Investigation of Police?

It often happens that the police investigates a criminal case very poorly. The reason is that the investigation officer is the person on whom the entire investigation is dependent. It is easy for the offender and his supporters to bribe that person and get maximum favors from him in getting the poor investigation done.

In such like circumstances it is best to change the investigating officer and get the case re-investigated. Proper procedure of re-investigation is to file application before the senior officials of police. They usually replace the investigation officer and order for re-investigation of case.

If a criminal case is not properly investigated, it is hard to prove it in the court of law. Because the prosecution has to prove a criminal case beyond the shadow of any doubt. So if investigation is poor, the case has doubts and ultimately it results in poor decision.

Non Appearance of Husband in a Khula Case

If a husband does not appear in the Khula case, the case proceeds ex-parte against him and the wife ultimately gets Khula. It is best to contest the case if it is filed against the husband. Because that way he gets a chance to reconcile the marriage through court.

Another aspect is that if a wife demands any amount of recovery against the dower, dowry articles, maintenance, gifts or in any other way, she may get all of that in the ex-parte suit. The family judge has descretionary powers to give relief to the wife contesting the case.

So it is always best to contest and avail the opportunity of defending whenever a Khula case is filed against the husband.

Charges of a Family Case in Pakistan

There are no fixed charges of a family case in Pakistan. The reason is that there are variety of cases that can be filed in Family Courts, Arbitration/Union Councils and at various other forums. Similarly different cases are concluded in different times because of various reasons. So it is hard to quote a price of a family case without knowing exactly the time and effort which a lawyer has to put into it.

Generally speaking a good Family Lawyer charges between $1000 to $2000 per family case in Pakistan. A malpractice is that some people quote very low charges for a family case but when it proceeds, they impose hidden charges which are sometimes unbearable for those involved in such cases.

It is also better to pay good service charges to lawyers for availing quality services as family cases usually impact the persons involved for rest of their lives.

Divorce Processing Fee in Pakistan

Divorce processing fee varies from lawyer to lawyer and its dependent on many factors. Generally speaking a good lawyer charges $1500 to $2000 for processing a divorce case in Pakistan.

There are cheap lawyers as well as expensive lawyers working on divorce cases in Pakistan. The better the lawyer is, the better is his fee structure. For poor services, the fee structure is usually poor.

A saying is very famous in legal profession " It is better to request the opponent then hiring a cheap lawyer". So a cheap lawyer is never advisable for an important case of divorce no matter how simple it looks like.

A divorce process usually comprises of 3 dates of reconciliation at least. A good lawyer provides divorce certificate after the conclusion of divorce case.

Custody case against Khula case

When a wife files suit for dissolution of marriage on the grounds of Khula, it is unstoppable unless its reconciled successfully or withdrawn by wife.

Before filing a family suit of such nature a wife or her parents think on the matter for a considerable time before taking such important decision of going into litigation and spending huge amount on it. Hence to change their mind, a husband is left with very little option for saving his marriage.

Filing a custody case in such like circumstances is the best idea. The reason is that the children are the best bond between spouses. When a wife has a fear that on losing the custody case, she can lose her custody over children, she thinks over reconciling rather then ending marriage.

Divorce process in Lahore

Often it happens that the spouses come to a point whereby divorce is the only situation to which they have to pass by .. However a fact is that the mere pronouncement of divorce doesn't conclude it legally.

Legally the divorce process has to be adopted under the provisions of section 7 of the Muslim Family Laws Ordinance 1961. The process of divorce is almost same in whole of Pakistan.

Lahore is the provincial capital of Punjab province in Pakistan. It has one district, one arbitration council and many union councils. The divorce case is filed in the union council or arbitration council where the wife resides.

The process is of 90 days with at least 3 adjournments. If there is no reconciliation between spouses during the divorce case, it ends up in divorce and ultimately divorce certificate is issued.
