Child Custody in Karachi Pakistan

Child custody is a matter which is closely related to divorce law and many issues will inevitably be dealt with at the same time as a divorce. However, in many cases parents will come to their own informal arrangements. In any case, an agreement should be reached on the basis of what the parents mutually believe is best for the welfare of the children and, if possible, what their children want.

Child custody law of Pakistan determines who should be responsible for the care and charge of a child, after divorce or separation. In the majority of cases parents opt for joint custody, which enables the child to spend an equal amount of time with each parent. This option also allows both parents to participate in any decision making which may affect the child. However, if parents are unable to amicably decide what living arrangement is best for their child, the courts will decide on their behalf.

If there is a dispute, to reduce the potential stress and legal costs, the next step is mediation, which can be arranged through Child Custody Lawyers. The well trained team of lawyers in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Hyderabad and Thatta provide best legal services.

If mediation cannot resolve the dispute, the final stage is the courts. Again, in general the decision as to who is awarded custody is based on what is best for the welfare of the child/children.

If you have recently divorced or separated from you partner and want to find out about child custody, how child custody arrangements are made and what you can do in the event of a dispute, you are in the right place to find out. We understand how sensitive child custody issues can be.

However, we have tried to be as frank and objective as possible so it has some use for everyone and allows you to know exactly where you stand.

Divorce Family Law

Difference between Talaq and Khulla

Talaq is the Islamic term for divorce, which is commonly used in all Part of Pakistan including Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Hyderabad and Thatta. A talaq is used to end a contract of marriage the nikah, under the terms of Islamic sharia (which is also adopted under the Pakistani Laws). It should be noted that Talaq is a right given by a Husband and Wife can only exercise the right of Talaq if the same is granted to her in her Nikkahnama (Pakistani Marriage Contract). If the Husband gives Talaq he must also tender Haq Meher to his Wife, whereas if the Wife exercises her right of Talaq then she must relinquish her right to Haq Meher.

It is important to note that Shia and Sunni Muslims have different rules for performing a Talaq. Sunni practice requires no witnesses, and allows a husband to end a relationship by saying the triple talaq, whereas Shi’a scholars view the triple talaq (in one sitting or at one time) as a custom, forbidden by Holy Prophet Muhammad, but reinstated by Umar ibn al-Khattab, and thus  forbidden. Sunni scholars agree to the facts, but deem it halal (“lawful”) anyway.

Khula is the right of a woman in Islam to divorce and it means separation from her husband. After divorce, the husband is responsible for the education and maintenance of the children. The children live with the mother till the age of Hizanat which is seven years for son and age of puberty for daughters.

After the age of Hizanat, the children have the right to live with the father or the mother, and their opinion will be considered by the court but will not be taken as conclusive and decisive factor.
A woman seeks a Khula while a man seeks a Talaq. The Iddah period also allows for reconciliation for the husband and wife.

We do not run any fund raising program regularly, but  International and Local Donor agencies are always welcome for starting Human Rights and Woman rights Projects with our collaboration. We are not a N.G.O. (Non Government Organization) but we have dealt many divorce and human rights cases for deserving woman in Karachi, Pakistan without Professional Fees.

A woman can approach court for Khulla at any time after marriage, under the Family Law there is no limitation to file Divorce Case, even she can file a case for khulla on second day of marriage.

Sometimes ladies can not come to office of a Lawyer for discussing her case due to domestic problems, therefore, she can not get proper legal assistance rapidly. We on-line services to them. 

If you can not come our office then you can just email us the details of your case and sent required papers to us by courier services alongwith cross cheque or pay order of our professional fees. We will prepare your case, the draft is sent to client by email, after approval of the client the case is finalized for filing in the Court.

In this type of custody the minor live permanently with the one spouse either with the father or mother or with any other maternal or paternal relatives. This kind of custody is given the family court concern where the child is living. After the hearing and with the evidence of the witness court allow the permanently custody to anyone. As per law till the age of 7 of male child it is the right of mother to retain the custody of the child and if the ward is female then its age is puberty as prescribed in the Guardian & Wards Act 1890. But this is not final there are so many other grounds which are considered at the time of permanently custody. For example the welfare of the minors, Second Marriage of the mother/father, death of the mother, maintenance of the minors, character of the mother or father, wish of the minors, other female persons in the house of father etc.

2. Temporary Custody
This kind of custody in given under section 12 of the Guardian & Ward Act 1890 by the court to any spouse either father or mother till the decision of the permanently custody case. Generally this kind of custody is given to the mother as she is right of hizanat and under Islamic law the mother has right to get this kind of custody. However father can also applied for this kind of custody and father can also be given on the grounds in the absence of the mother, character, not fall under the hizanat etc.

3. Meeting Custody
It is the right of the parents to meet with the minor. Both father and mother applied for this meeting with the child.

Meeting can be held in the court or at the house of the any party, in the office of any counsel and any other suitable place. This meeting can be held after seven days, fifteen days or after one month as the court may think fit and proper. On the different occasion for example on the Eid days or in the vacations, the court can grant the meeting with the minor for more than one day.

4. Legal Custody
Legal custody of a child means having the right and the obligation to make decisions about a child’s upbringing. A parent with legal custody can make decisions about schooling, and medical care, etc. This kind of custody is award by the court after the proper hearing of the case and generally this is got under section 25 of the guardian and Ward Act 1890 and per court decision both the spouses are bound to retain as per court decision.

Changing of last name after the marriage

Changing of last name after the marriage

When you marry, you are free to keep your own family name or take your husband’s name, Give some careful thought to what name feels best for you. You can save yourself considerable time and trouble by making sure you are happy with your choice of name before you change any records. The name changing method is so simple. You have to take your nikahnama (Marriage Certificate) and your old original CNIC with the father name and go to the NADRA office. You will be issued new CNIC with your new family name and husband name instead of father name. And after the CNIC you can get your new passport also.

Changing of last name after the Divorce
The same procedure you have to adopt for changing your name and getting your CNIC & passport with your father name after your divorce. When you get divorce / Khulla from the court or your husband pronounce you divorce then it will be mandatory for you to change your name and have to get new CNIC and Passport with your old name and with your father name. For this you have to visit NADRA office for CNIC and Passport office for Passport along with court decree of divorce / divorce deed and NADRA confirmation certificate that you have got divorce or divorce has been given to you.

Changing of name in other cases
In other cases if you want to change your child name before 18 years/age of majority that will be easy. You have to give the affidavit and get new birth certificate and in this way you can also change your child name in the educational institutions. But after the age of 18 years it will be very difficult to change the name without any cogent reason. However if you have sufficient prove that the name has been written wrong then you can change your name but for this you have to file suit in the court. And upon the court decree you will be able to change the name in the relevant Govt. records.
