Divorce & Child Custody Law Firm

Divorce is the process of formally terminating a marriage or marital union. A successful divorce allows the parties to remarry. A divorce proceeding can be initiated by either spouse and is followed by discussion and proceeding on alimony, child custody, distribution of assets etc. Child custody refers to the responsibility given to a parent to look after a child’s well-being, if the child is a minor, i.e. below 18 years of age. The parent in whom the custodial right is vested is supposed to look after the financial security, maintenance of the child with regard to proper lifestyle, healthcare, emotional, physical and medical development. Custody of children in India are decided in accordance with the Hindu Minority and Guardianship Act, 1956 together with the Guardians and Wards Act, 1890 and Indian Divorce Act.
