..::Muslim Family Laws Ordinance…Application in or outside Pakistan

..::Muslim citizens of Pakistan.. reside in or outside Pakistan..::Muslim Family Laws Ordinance will apply on them

:Muslim Family Laws in Pakistan

“Citizens” of Pakistan‑Ordinance applies to all Muslims “residing” in Pakistan and Pakistani citizens elsewhere.

The Family Laws Ordinance of 1961 applies to all Muslims residing in Pakistan and to all citizens of Pakistan wherever they may be residing, whether in Pakistan or at any place outside Pakistan. This interpretation would not be against the well-­recognised principles of law because the Private International Law regarding divorce is that the law of the domicile of the husband, which is to be presumed to be the law of the domicile of the wife, is applicable to a divorce.
