Power of Attorney in Family Cases

Power of Attorney can be used in Family Cases. According to Section 18 of the West Pakistan Family Courts Act 1964, a pardanasheen lady can give power of attorney to her agent to appear on her behalf in the family court.

Every lady is deemed to be a pardanasheen lady unless proved contrary. Hence this provision of law empowers the women to appoint their attorneys that can represent them in the court proceedings before family judges in Pakistan.

In practice men also appoint their attorneys in cases where they are unable to attend court proceedings in person. The reason is that the general principles of civil law are applicable on family courts in Pakistan.
