Scanned or photo copy of Vakalatnama will not be accepted by the court, instead file  memo undertaking to file a vakalat in the next hearing.

 Scaned or photo copy of vakalatnama  if bears original signature of client than it is acceptable  but in family courts under the provisions of Family Court Act 1984 appearance of Advocate /counsel is barred.see sec 13 of Family Court act 1984

 13. Right to legal representation.

Good information! It tends me think more properly because I got to know about the procedure of this court just by this article. Even I see the gratitude in the nature of this blogger and australian writings au share wonderful material. So thanks for this information and also I request you “Sumita” to keep posting these kinds of articles.
