A case for divorce is not filed in the Family Court

The proper forum for filing a divorce case is not the family court. The proper forum is the Arbitration or Union Council where the wife resides. Jurisdiction in family cases is where the wife resides at the time of filing of case.

It doesn't matter where the Nikah is contracted or where the husband resides. A case for divorce has to be filed in the jurisdiction where at the time of divorce wife resides. In cases of fake addresses divorce cases get dismissed on the basis of jurisdiction.

The procedure of divorce involves at least three hearings for reconciliation in which the statements of parties are also recorded. The entire case runs for 90 days and after that divorce certificates are issued to parties after due payment of requisite fee.
