The Bangladeshi Family Law System operates in a way that helps people resolve issues arising from family relationship issues. Families can experience crisis, disagreement, loss, instability, and overall breakdown of the entire family unit. It takes understanding, compassion, integrity, and professional experience to manage and operate under these conditions. It can be emotional and stressful dealing with divorce, separation, and the breakdown of relationships and family units. Our family lawyers are experts in the field of family law and will assist you in a calm and understanding manner.
This area of family law encompasses several components and can include:
1. Marriage & Divorce
2. Domestic & Family Violence
3. Succession, inheritance, partition and distribution of inherited properties
4. Settlement of matrimonial disputes in general
5. Adoption, custody and guardianship of the child, conversion of religion etc.
One of the most common family law issues is marriage and divorce. In Bangladesh, a Muslim couple may seek divorce through the process of Talaq, which can be initiated by the husband. Alternatively, both parties can mutually agree to a divorce through a process called Khula. For non-Muslims, the process of divorce follows the Special Marriage Act of 1872. Our family lawyers can provide legal guidance on the divorce process in Bangladesh and help clients navigate the legal system to achieve the best possible outcome. The fees charged by the government for divorce registration in Bangladesh are usually between BDT 200 and 500, depending on the district.
Domestic and family violence is another crucial issue that falls under family law. Our family lawyers can provide legal representation and assistance to clients who have experienced domestic violence and help them obtain a restraining order against the perpetrator. The government does not charge any fees for filing a domestic violence case in Bangladesh.
Succession, inheritance, partition, and distribution of inherited properties are also significant areas of family law in Bangladesh. Inheritance laws in Bangladesh are based on religious laws and are specific to each religion. Our family lawyers can provide legal guidance on the inheritance laws in Bangladesh and assist clients in obtaining their rightful share of the inherited property. The fees charged by the government for inheritance registration in Bangladesh are usually between BDT 100 and 200, depending on the district.
Settlement of matrimonial disputes in general is another area of family law in Bangladesh. Our family lawyers can represent clients in court and negotiate settlements on their behalf. The government does not charge any fees for filing a matrimonial dispute case in Bangladesh.
Adoption, custody, and guardianship of the child, conversion of religion, property, financial arrangements, disputes, arbitration, etc., are other areas of family law that our family lawyers can handle. Our lawyers can provide legal guidance on the adoption process, child custody and guardianship, and property disputes. The government charges a fee of BDT 200 for adoption registration in Bangladesh.
The fees charged by our family lawyers in Bangladesh depend on the complexity of the case and the services required. Typically, lawyers charge an hourly rate, which can vary depending on their experience and expertise. The usual time required for a family law case in Bangladesh varies depending on the complexity of the case, the court's workload, and the parties involved. Therefore, it is challenging to estimate the time required for a family law case in Bangladesh.
In conclusion, family law issues can be complex and challenging, and having an experienced family lawyer is crucial to achieving the best possible outcome.
