We provide legal services for real estate issues / disputes in India. Over the years we have maintained network of lawyers / advocates who assist in property related matter all over in India. We understand the needs of people on the intricacies of today's property industry. Not every person has the same requirements or understanding of the Indian legal process.

* Divorce

We undertake all kinds of litigation pertaining to the divorce. In India, there are various Laws which govern the principle of Divorce like Hindu Marriage Act-1955, Special Marriage Act-1956, Indian Divorce Act, Christian Marriage Act, etc. These laws basically deals with various aspects of divorce and most importantly laid down the grounds on which divorce can be sought by the spouses against each other. " Under Indian Laws, divorce is generally divided in to two parts: Mutual Consent Divorce; & Contested Divorce.

* Prenuptial agreement
Validity of a Prenuptial Agreement in India, Execution of the Agreement in India before marriage, Non-Disclosure Agreement at the time of Divorce

* Child Custody

In divorce proceedings, the most complex and emotionally drenching issue is that of child custody. Children, young and at times infant have to bear the pain for no fault of theirs. Due to the extreme emotional attachment, both parents want to keep the custody of the children. In Indian set-up, such question is decided by the court of Guardian and Wards. Welfare of the children is the paramount consideration before the Court while deciding the question as to who is entitled to have the custody of children. Custody of children can be divided in to three parts: Permanent Custody; Interim Custody; and Visitation Rights.

* Maintenance

This is an integral part of all matrimonial proceedings. Application for maintenance can be moved by either of the spouse who does not have the sufficient means to maintain him/her self. Maintenance can also be classified in to two parts: Interim Maintenance; and Permanent Maintenance.

* Annulment of Marriage

A petition for the annulment of marriage is moved on certain grounds specified in various matrimonial laws. Once a petitioner is successful in proving its case, marriage is declared null and void. Resultant, the court considers that the marriage has not taken place at all and the tag of the 'divorcee' is not attached. Annulment of marriage is very important in the scheme of matrimonial laws as there is no point in carrying the burden of divorce in cases where marriage has been solemnized on the strength of fraud or where the marriage is solemnized despite the fact that the responding spouse was already married.

* Restitution of Conjugal Rights

It is another important remedy provided by law to the spouses. In cases, where one party leave the company and society of the other spouse, then a case for restitution of conjugal rights can be filed in the Court. The Court directs the defaulting spouse to join the company of the other spouse unless there is a strong reason justifying such withdrawal. This remedy is often used strategically in fighting matrimonial cases.

- Criminal Law

Criminal law deals with the penal consequences that arise from criminal offenses in violation of the penal code of the country. As a result in contrast to civil laws where private parties bring claim against each other, in criminal law it is mostly the State which brings about an action against the offending party. An expert criminal lawyer is aware not only of the legal provisions of criminal law but also the peculiarities that go hand in hand with this field of law such as right to speedy trial of the accused, prohibition against double jeopardy, prohibition against self incrimination, prohibition against unreasonable search and seizures, also as opposed to civil law where the standard of proof is preponderance of probability, the standard of proof in criminal law is proof beyond reasonable doubt.

- Civil Law

The most important field of Indian civil law services in India is injunction in civil laws. The scope of injunction is very wide and injunction suits are filed before the courts seeking the restraint against a party from doing any apprehended act which may cause loss or damage to the person approaching the court who is called Plaintiff. Injunction can also be filed against any party for performing any kind of act which he is under obligation to do but has failed to perform. The main types of Injunctions filed in the Indian civil courts are Mandatory Injunction, Permanent Injunction. We provide all kinds of services related to filing, defending and contesting civil injunctions before all courts at all levels with full confidence.
