Question :

1) difference between divorce and separation in Pakistani Civil Law?
2) What should a husband do to get the document of separation?
3) what effect does separation has on marital status of husband and wife from Civil amd shariat perspective?


  1. There is no law of separation in Pakistani laws except for Christian under The Divorce Act 1869. So, there are no documents for such separation, however, if a wife is not willing to live with the husband, he may file a suit for restitution of conjugal rights before the Family court and that decree of court may be considered as proof of separation if you required the same for a foreign country.
