Family law in India is an interesting mix of theology and law. It attempts to strike a balance between tradition customs and modern trends, religious principles and just morals; and sacred emotions and legal rationale. But legal principles, norms and regulations have to be separated and codified. Family law in India is codified according to the different practices in different cultures and hence is a wide subject to practice and grasp on.
There is a huge array of central statutes regulating the everyday practices of family and a lawyer that has in depth understanding of the regulations becomes the top requirement. I am an advocate practicing mainly in the field of family law for over a period of two decades. Having worked in a total of 24 states of India I have acquired an experience of dealing with a wide range of clients with an even wider range of matters and concerns.
