You may discuss in confidence for mature deliberations with your own counsel on your matter.

The query also hints that you need to be properly informed for which your counsel can also hlep you.

You may take help of elders of your family, competent and experienced well wishers, seasoned PIP’s, helpgroups for spouses (husband or wife) , community leaders, NGO’s, experienced colleagues, associations, religious scholars/leaders, trade association leaders,  etc   etc to resolve the matter if any, and/or find a very able LOCAL counsel specializing in concerned filed of law e.g; Family/Civil  matters as in your case, and well versed with LOCAL applicable rules, precedence, latest judgments etc …. and worth his/her salt, can advise you and even help you.

Avoid IT’s and entities loitering at various online portals to allure and fleece unsuspecting/innocent/hapless  querists many of which advertise with pictures of sick and old indivisuals and claim to be some Lawyer ( infact a Liar) and flaunt unknown firms as Law Firms ( Infact Liar’s firms) ….and are good for nothing Mufatkhora’s ( Freemongers) looking for bakra/shikar…


Online discussions are not substitute to in person discussions with a very able counsel of unshakable repute and integrity specializing in concerned field of law.

There are such very able counsels at each location.

Check for such counsels at LOCAL e.g;, Family/Civil courts, HC, SC … Such counsels can draft so as to suit your long term interest.

You can also try for FREE legal aid from legal Aid center (DLSA) that is usually within LOCAL courts compex preferably from a counsel specializing in Family/Civil matters.


Such Counsel are a white crow and it's futile to look or search for them
