What is the difference between an uncontested divorce and a contested divorce?

When you and your spouse agree on all of the outstanding issues from your separation, you will have an uncontested divorce. Essentially, this means that both of you have agreed on everything – parenting arrangements, child support, spousal support, and how to divide your property, assets, debts, and pensions.

If your divorce is uncontested, you will probably never have to appear in court. A court staff member and a judge will handle your divorce ‘behind the scenes’.

If you are divorcing, this means that you do not agree on some or all of the issues that resulted from the separation. The divorce process begins when one spouse files a Petition for Divorce and the other spouse files an Answer. Answer shows that the other spouse disagrees with something requested in the divorce. The spouse who files the divorce petition is called the petitioner. It is the other spouse who responds.

NADRA Divorce Certificate 

 The husband may divorce his lawfully wedded wife through a Deed of Khula Divorce, which can be prepared based on Triple Divorce being declared before a witness. Khula may only be sought from the husband if the wife’s right to divorce has been deleted or is not authorized in her marriage contract, known as “Nikkanama”.

Accordingly, in most cases, our litigation department will assist the wife in completing a Khula application with the court based on the following law and ordinance:

  • The Dissolution of Muslim Marriages Act of 1939
  • The Muslim Family Law Ordinance of 1961
  • (West Pakistan) Muslim Personal Law (Shariat) Application Act 1962
  • (West Pakistan) Family Courts Act 1964
  • The offense of Zina (Enforcement of Hudood) Ordinance 1979
  • Law of Evidence (Qanun-e-Shahadat) Order 1984
  • Enforcement of Sharia Act 1991
  • Dowry and Bridal Gifts (Restriction) Act 1976
  • Prohibition (Enforcement of Hudood) Order 1979
  • Offense of Qazf (Enforcement of Hudood ) Order 1979
  • Execution of Punishment of Whipping Ordinance 1979


The husband is the one who has the authority to divorce his wife, though he can delegate that authority to a third party. In that case, the divorce could be declared by the person who was delegated such power. “Talaq-e-Tafweez” divorce refers to the delegation of power called “Tafweez” to the wife by the husband, thereby empowering her to divorce herself. In accordance with Sections 7 and 8 of the Muslim Family Laws Ordinance (VIII of 1961) 2013 CLC 1625.
