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.
