Why Overseas Pakistanis need legal help?

Overseas Pakistanis are facing various problems in communicating to their lawyers in Pakistan with regard to their family and property disputes and require an efficient and accessible platform for this purpose. Similarly, the law offices in Pakistan have no proper mechanism available to ensure the fair proceedings of the overseas Pakistanis.

In Pakistan’s economy, contribution by our overseas Pakistanis is of great importance and when overseas Pakistanis are contributing more than the state’s expectations then it is a responsibility of the state to protect their interest reserves in Pakistan whether it’s a property, business or family. But unfortunately, the state is failed to ensure proper protection due to lack of resources and interest of the stakeholders.

Another core factor as to why overseas Pakistanis need legal help is due to being defrauded by the residents and frankly said most of them are relatives who know the weakness of overseas residents.

Importance of Legal Services for Overseas Pakistanis

Legal services for overseas Pakistanis are of most important because when the state fails to ensure protection to the business, properties and families of Pakistanis living abroad then they must need a legal way by approaching the court of law for seeking redressal of their grievance. In current era, Government and stakeholders are being pressurized by the overseas community and several steps has been initiated to provide them legal protection and grievance redressal mechanism.

  • Divorce
  • Child Custody
  • Inheritance Disputes
  • Second Marriage
  • Child & Wife Maintenance

We are experienced to deal with the divorce matters of overseas Pakistanis while residing abroad. According to the dissolution of Muslim Marriages Act and Muslim Family Law Ordinance there is a certain way for divorce by the husband and khula by the wife.

If husband is residing abroad and wishes to divorce his wife residing in Pakistan then he must appoint his special attorney who will proceed on his behalf. For more details you may contact us.

If wife is residing abroad and wishes to obtain separation from her spouse living inside or outside Pakistan then she will need to file a lawsuit for dissolution of marriage before the family court and in this regard, she also needs to appoint a special attorney who will represent her in court as well as arbitration council. If you need more information, you may contact us.

After separation, a core concern between the spouses is a custody of their child or visitation rights of either parent. According to the family laws of Pakistan, either husband or wife may retain the custody of child but right of custody shall be either decided by the mutual consent of both the spouses or by the competent court of law. If the matter comes before the court, then the court prefers a welfare of child beyond the financial status of either spouse.

Inheritance dispute is a mostly concern of our overseas Pakistanis which may arise after the death of parents. That comes with respect to inheritance rights into the immoveable property and succession in the moveable property. Task for issuance of certificate for both has been assigned to the NADRA and if there comes any objection, the competent court will have jurisdiction to decide the same.

Such disputes arise when husband intends to contract a second marriage and wife apprehends with this concern. Although Islam doesn’t refrain from contracting second marriage but there come certain obligations upon husband. Family law of Pakistan prescribed a proper procedure for issuance of second marriage permission from Union Council which have its own merits and ingredients.

According to the Sharia and Family laws of Pakistan, husband is under obligation to financially support his wife and child. And the family courts in Pakistan are quite conscious about such disputes. It is to be noted that husband/father cannot avoid the payment of maintenance in any manner whatsoever and if the court requires husband/father can order to be detained in case of non-payment.
