If you want more money recovered with a legal, safe and fast manner, contact our law firm. Our practice consists of associates at Karachi. We have extensive experience in distress debt trading industries. Our attorneys regularly appear on behalf of clients in bankruptcy courts in Karachi.

Taking legal action to reclaim debt should be a last resort, and often the threat is enough to make your customers pay you. However, if your usual ways of recovering debt have failed, there are things to consider before beginning the legal process.

Consider some form of alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation or arbitration. Contracts may already specify how disputes should be resolved. Resolution procedures can make it easier to control costs and are often less confrontational than court proceedings.

Mediation is a simple, cheap method of resolving disputes. It can save you time and money and can assist all parties in reaching a mutually beneficial resolution. This can help maintain the business relationship once the dispute is settled.

Even if making a claim seems the only answer, you should consider your chances of winning. In many cases your claim may not be disputed. But in others, it could be difficult to prove the customer is at fault.

Remember that you can’t be certain of receiving the money owed – let alone any costs or expenses – if the person or company you’re taking action against has no assets or a history of bad debt. Credit reference agencies should be able to give you a credit rating for the defendant and details of any unpaid court judgments.

If you win the judgment, the customer is required to pay the sum claimed. If properly claimed, they are required to pay court fees and interest as well. If they do not pay, you must be prepared to take steps to enforce the judgment. For this client have to note that:

  • court fees are payable when you issue a claim and if you have to enforce the judgment
  • fees are payable if you lose or do not succeed in enforcing your judgment
  • you may have solicitor’s costs and other costs – if you win and succeed in enforcing the judgment, you may be able to claim these back from the defendant

You will have to pay court fees in advance. However, they can be recovered from the defendant if you win. If you lose or you do not succeed in enforcing your judgment you will not be able to reclaim those costs.

We advise both local and international companies on a full range of legal issues from non-contentious corporate and commercial matters, including major project work; establishing and conducting business in Karachi Pakistan, joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, employment matters, distributions and franchise arrangements.

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.

No Win No Fee, around the world

All over the world The ‘no win no fee’ system means claiming the compensation you deserve is risk-free.

No win no fee compensation claims were introduced to the UK in 1995 to help people get a fair hearing and access to justice, even if they couldn’t afford to pay for legal representation themselves.

In United Kingdom UK, If your claim is unsuccessful for some reason, you don’t pay a penny. Your solicitor simply does not get paid – no win no fee. Solicitors can still offer a no win no fee service, but claimants may be expected to contribute to their legal costs from any compensation they receive.

In Australia, the Law Firms offer this guarantee to alleviate any financial worry for litigant and his family during the course of litigation / case.

In UK No win, no fee lawsuits still exist but they are now far less attractive for both lawyers and clients. Previously, if claimants won their case, they kept any damages awarded in full. It was the losing side that paid the claimant’s legal costs plus an all important “success fee”.

If your claim is successful, many companies in UK make sure that client / litigant keep at least 75% of the compensation he is awarded.

The legal system is slightly different for those living in Scotland, where the solicitor’s fee which is deducted from clients compensation differs slightly. However, just like in England and Wales, if client don’t win, he don’t have to pay a penny.

In United Kingdom under the new arrangements, successful claimants still won’t pay any fees to cover lawyers’ costs. However, if you win, you – not the losing side – would have to pay a “success fee”, an uplift previously sought by lawyers from the opposing side. It covered their risk for taking on the case in case they lost and no fees were recoverable.
