Other than in the following circumstances, an advocate can represent a member of the family:
1. An advocate is not permitted to appear in any case in which the result will advantage him or her financially. An advocate, for instance, cannot represent a person in a suit to divide Joint Family Property in which he or she has a portion.
2. An advocate is not permitted to appear in a case in which he or she is or may be a testimony. For instance, an advocate cannot testify in a case in which one of his family members is charged with assaulting another.
3. An advocate may not practise in a court where the judge is a father, grandfather, son, grandson, uncle, brother, nephew, first cousin, husband, wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, brother-in-law, daughter-in-law, or sister-in-law.
If the advocate does not follow these guidelines, disciplinary action may be taken against him or her.
So, he wll be his wife's legal counsel.
