Environmental Laws and Policies in Pakistan

Top Law Firms in Karachi PakistanWe are one of the Pakistan’s leading environmental law firms. Unlike many firms, we have a standalone environment group – not a team that is an add-on to a real estate, planning or energy practice.

Our approach is practical and commercial.  We help our clients assess risk and avoid problems. Where they do have problems, we help solve them. Where damage is inevitable, we strive to limit it, with particular emphasis on protecting reputation and, when necessary, individuals.

We usually work with our clients to avoid litigation. But when we can’t avoid it, our combination of in-depth commercial understanding and criminal advocacy know-how makes us a formidable force. We also have an experience of the appeals system and judicial review.

In non-contentious areas, our environment lawyers do a wide variety of ‘pure’ environmental work, as well as advising on risk assessment and apportionment in corporate, property and financing transactions. They also work closely with our specialists in the areas of planning, energy and International law.

Our clients include European and US investors in the Pakistan, government departments and agencies, local authorities, banks, investment funds, landowners, utility operators, property companies, landfill operators, professional bodies and companies from many other sectors, including manufacturing, waste, chemicals, construction, house building, rail, mining, quarrying, oil and energy.

You can Contact Us for detailed consultation.

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.
