  1. I recently filed a khula case against my husband. He didn’t show up in any court’s dates. So, the court gave me the benefit of ex-parte. Now, my lawyer has filed another case against him for return of my clothing articles and dowry items. I’m doubtful that he might not respond to those notices also. My question is, in such cases what does the court do? How they make the husband to return back what is rightfully his wife’s property?

      1. Last year my sister in law filed khula .. we have received hearing notices but my brother was not in Pakistan to appear in court (covid travel restrictions),although he wanted to.. the question is khula done even if husband was not present or even given chance to give his verdict.Can we file second round of hearing?or is it done?no dissolution of nikkah from Union council has been filed from both parties.

    1. Khula is considered as right and after getting your statement in accordance with the plaint’s Ground the court will immediately pass the decree of the case is exparte but if the case is contesting by other party then there is procedure of mediation and after that the proceedings will come to its fate….

      The second suit need evidence admissible by court along with documentary evidence….
      Then the same will be decided accordingly

    2.

    3. Court May pass the decree of return the dowry articles and than that decree may send for execution

  2. I am in pakistan and my husband is in UK. I want khula and if my husband is willing to give khula on mutual consent even then I have to file a case or we can just sign a document of khula to avoid court hearings ? Thanks

    1. Please suggest.if the judge issue an order of khula but sign was not done of both wife and husband . In this case..sing is necessary on khula documents of both ..wife and hasband..?have confusing regarding previous month order issued by judge..

  3. Can a lady revok the order of khula which was granted in her suit of dissolution of marriage,
    After receiving decre now she and her ex husband is ready to join each other,
    In which provision she have right an application to restore the suit

  4. My daughter is 2 years old n my son is 1 year old …I want to take khula from husband as we have an extremely abusive relation….my question is that what does law say abt these infant custody could I want to live with my kids

    1. In khula case custody of children will not discuss but if your husband wants kids custody he have to file seprate case in guardian court. But in your situation your have more rights then your husband/ kids father. After khula you will have kids custody. Hizanat of kids in mother favour.

  5. i asked some question about my verbal divorce and ask some advice .i thankful that adviser quickly answered and give a good advice that what should i do next.

  6. Faiza applied for ka nikah hoa,mgr rukhsati nh hoi.admi talak nh Dyna chahta mgr faiza rukhsati sy pahly khula mang rai.court ny khula case ki pahli hearing mn admi Ko bulaya mgr admi nh gaya.kya hearing mn na janay py admi KO police pakar k ly jay gi?

  7. My wife filed suit for khulah but notice sent to wrong address and advertised in paper which has no circulation in city where i m residing. The facts given were baseless. Court given decree and now i have appealed for reconcilation. My wife nothing claimed. If my application is rejected or my wife not agreed for reconcilation then she can claim any thing dowery other things were not given by her parents.

  8. Hello there i just need to confirm if a lady filed an case of khula in family court and husband showed on every date and its been 3 months and man never showed into the union council and they wants to rejoin each other so is it halal or in other words is it possible if court issued decree

  9. Aoa my question is If wife filed a case of khula today. But now in evening everything is cleared between both parties. Aur ab wo notice nhi chahty k ghr tk ay. Aur case close krny ka bola ho lawyer se b. To ye janna hai k kya same day hi notice issue ho jata hai jis din file kiya jy case? Ya kuch din ya wqt lgty hain ?

    1. Ye lawyer per depend karta hai notice same day koie be send nie karta agar hu be jay tu koie faraq nie parta ap ke wife case withdraw kar layien gee. Its routine matter ap kay wakeel sahib handle kar layien gay. Jab case he wapis hu jay tu notice be khtam. Keep in mind family Court reconciliation ko zayda preference karti hai instead khula ya talaq ko. Thanks

  11. Assllam o Alaikum…
    My cousin get khula because of immoral behavior of her Husband’s Family even his husband to. After khula her husband is filing cases for child custody.. my cousin has daughter from him. As he didn’t considered her as his child, even didn’t ever paid any necessity. My cousin is a dentist and earning enough to take care of her daughter but she also want fullfil other marital needs and also a good person for her daughter. But here surroundings are psychological threatening that if she get second marriage license so the custody will be transfered to her Ex.
    So here I want to ask that:
    Q: is there any custody law which may prefere child custody to male?
    As he never ever considered her daughter but now he is false accusing for maintenance etc. Which are totally bogus..
    Q: if she get second marriage is it true that her daughter custody will be transfere to her Ex?
    Q: is there any custody issue which may her Ex can claim? Now a days he is threatening and disturbing her regarding custody and second marriage etc.. daughter age 2 years

  12. How many months does it take to finalise khula by the court? What about 7 years old daughter’s custody?will the mother have the custody if the father applies for it? Are there any conditions that mother need to fulfill to have the daughters custody?

  13. Asalamalaikum my husband is cheating me from so many years now he told me about his second wife he got married without my permission and even I didn’t know about it he always fight in front of my kids abuse me spitting on my face is normal routine I don’t have parents or siblings who can support me all I want from him just leave me in respectful manner but he threatened me that he will ruin my respect in court pls guide me

  16. I want to file a Khula and don’t know how ,im a foreigner and my husband and I always to fight,.im hoping you can help me .

  17. Aoa, my wife cheated on me since 2 years, she was already divorced n having 2 boy kids and now we have 1 more boy kid. Having 3 Boy kids now. 1st Boy age 10 years, 2nd boy age 7 years and 3rd boy age 3 years. How can i get three kids or last kid, age 3 years from that lady. I have all the evidence of her affairs and now she is not willing to stay with me. She said to get divorced or Khula by Court.
    Need your guidance on my son custody age 3 years, or is there any way to compromise for next.

  18. Hi. I have applied for khula but my husband took it on his ego that i asked for it. He is threatening to file a case against me for abuse and said that he will himself give me Talaq. I want to take Khula and not Talaq.
    My question is that can he give me Talaq after I have filled a Khula in court? If he does, will i get certificate of Khula or it will call Talaq?
    If its Talaq then does he need to pay Haq-Mehr or not?

  19. If wife wants to take Khula without rukhsati, as rukhsati is not done. And if Husband is in abroad, so can wife send him khulanama through WhatsApp? AUr kya ase hi wo sign kr k scan krwa k WhatsApp pe send kr skta? Is it possible?
    Or should they need to post it on his address through tcs?
    As husband is willing to sign on the papers. But he is not willing to send divorce ppr by his own, he said if you want khula then you can send papers to me , I’ll sign on it.
    Jin judge k pas case hai unho ne kaha k WhatsApp kr dein pprs ya post kr dein, it’s up to you.
