Divorce:

Divorce is complicated, no matter how much money you have. No matter how well the parties cooperate, it might take long time to resolve such issues.

No matter whether the marriage has been dissolved through talaq, khula or judicial divorce, it is vital that legal procedures be properly followed. Failure to do so can raise doubts about the effectiveness of the divorce and lead to serious legal problems, such as a case of bigamy and zina against a woman who later remarries, or difficulties in settling issues related to the divorce such as past maintenance or claiming deferred haqmehr. The paternity of children can also be disputed.

Our Family Lawyers can be engaged on short notice and on flexible terms as we understand the complex nature of the claim and emotions.

Maintenance:

As per Pakistani and Islamic law it is the duty of the father to provide for maintenance of his child. In the event of divorce or separation, it is likely that fathers discontinue maintenance of their children. In such circumstance the mother of the Child can apply to the court to have the father pay for the child’s necessary expenses and needs. Maintenance orders are passed within delay and the amount is collected strictly as a collection of revenue or tax.
