Grandmother's right of visitation and Custody

In Pakistan the Guardianship law was enacted by British in the year 1890 which is known as the Guardians and Wards Act 1890. According to the provisions of Guardians and Wards Act, 1890 grandparents stand no where.

However, with the passage of time the superior courts of Pakistan have laid down principles that are followed by the Guardian Courts all over Pakistan. Pakistan is a society that has Islamic laws and typical Indian cultural values incorporated in its system which has impact on legal system as well.

In practice the grandparents do not easily get visitation rights and custody from the guardian courts in Pakistan especially when mother is alive and perfectly looking after the child. However, exceptional cases happen at times because of which grandparents get their rights from courts.

The primary thing which a guardian court has to see is to cater the welfare of minor. If under any circumstances it is proved that the welfare of minor is with the grandparents then the guardian judge has powers to pass orders accordingly.

Pre-Trial Reconciliation Proceedings

There is a wonderful concept of pre-trial reconciliation proceedings in Family Suits. As the name suggests it means reconciliation proceeding before the Trial. The benefit of this kind of proceeding is to end up the dispute before the trial if possible.

More than half of the family suits end up at this stage. The reason is that the judges, lawyers and parties try to end up the dispute at this stage if possible. This stage comes up after the filing of written statement by the defendant.

If reconciliation fail at this stage, the Family Court is bound to frame issue or decree the suit depending upon circumstances. A Family Judge is empowered to adjourn the matter to a future date if he/she sees any room for reconciliation at this stage.
