Divorce and Khula Law in Karachi Pakistan

We being the best team of divorce lawyers in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Hyderabad and Thatta,  Pakistan explain our clients about the Divorce and Khula law and legal procedure in the court of Pakistan. There are several ways for establishing divorce under the Shariah in Karachi Pakistan, We being the best team of divorce lawyers in Karachi Pakistan :

Both the husband and the wife come to an agreement that they wish to separate through divorce, and the husband then pronounces one declaration of divorce upon his wife and if the couple do not reconcile before the waiting period of ‘iddah’ (three menstrual cycles of the wife), a divorce in the marriage will be established.

The husband alone wishes to divorce his wife; in such a case the husband has the right to declare a divorce upon his wife

The wife alone wishes to divorce her husband; and there are two ways for her to achieve this divorce or ‘khula’:

She requests her husband that she no longer wishes to remain in marriage with him; and the husband declares a divorce upon her.

If her husband is not willing to grant her a divorce, under the Paksitani Law the wife is well within her rights in Shariah to approach a Shariah Court and present her divorce case to the Shariah Judge. In all major cities in Pakistan including Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Hyderabad and Thatta  these duties are performed by the Family Judge. The Family Judge would then summon the husband and ask him to declare a divorce upon his wife and free her from the marriage. If the husband for any reason refuses, the Shariah / Family Judge has the right to declare a divorce between the husband and the wife in 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.

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.
