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.
