Where is this case filed?
Khulla is filed wherever the wife resides, in matters where the woman is abroad, she may file Khulla through a representative, which we can assist our clients with from start to finish. The process of Khula usually lasts 1-6 months (until you obtain your Court order for Khula) after which you need to get your divorce certificate from the Union Council.
When filing a suit for dissolution of marriage, try to attach a copy of your nikahnama (marriage certificate) along with your CNIC. Ensure also that the latest information of both parties (the wife filing for dissolution of marriage as well as her husband whom she is seeking the khula from) are mentioned to ensure that the notices sent from the court are received.
What matters usually accompany dissolution of marriage?
When an individual looking to file a case for dissolution of marriage by way of khula, they can request for Alimony, Child Maintenance and Recovery of Dowry (Bridal Gifts), and Haq Mehr. When you are claiming maintenance, it is advised to add as much information as possible of your soon-to-be-ex spouse’s income.
When claiming recovery for Dowry, try to add a list of all the items along with a price for each item. If you received these gifts in front of a witness, then you can add their witness statement to this also. If you have matters pertaining to Child Custody, then that is a separate suit altogether.
