  1. According to Sharia and Pakistani laws, it is a valid mode of divorce pronouncement but Divorce shall not be effective until a husband inform the concerned Union Council.

    According to Section 7 of Muslim Family Law Ordinance, 1961 as mentioned below:-

    7. Talaq.– (1) Any man who wishes to divorce his wife shall, as soon as may be after the pronouncement of talaq in any form whatsoever, give the Chairman notice in writing of his having done so, and shall supply a copy thereof to the wife.

    (2) Whoever contravenes the provisions of sub-section (1) shall be punishable with simple imprisonment for a term which may extend to one year or with fine which may extend to five thousand rupees, or with both.

    So, A Husband may pronounce divorce in any form whatsoever but he is bound to inform the concerned Union Council / Arbitration Council for this action, otherwise, Talaq shall not be effective legally.

    If you want to get divorce certificate then you may submit the same notice copy (Whatsapp message) to concerned Union COuncil (i.e your union Council where you are currently residing).
    the Chairman Arbitration Council shall summon the Husband for verification and reconciliation and then after the expiry of 90 days, a talaq certificate shall be issued if reconciliation remained unsuccessful.
