"FAMILY KANOON" which means "family law" and is a branch of the legal system that deals with issues relating to family relationships / personal laws such as marriage, divorce, child custody, alimony, adoption, etc.

Divorce and family disputes rank among the most challenging experiences one can face, requiring not just legal expertise, but also a compassionate approach that respects the emotional aspects of these situations. At Family Kanoon, we dedicate ourselves to guiding you through the intricate maze of family law with sensitivity and legal acumen.

In India, family kanoon / family law is a complex blend of religious personal laws, secular laws, and customary practices. Here's a brief overview:

1. Personal Laws

These are based on the religion of the person, and they govern aspects like marriage, divorce, mutual divorce, adoption, child custody, inheritance, etc. For instance:

- Hindu Law

Governs individuals who are Hindus, Buddhists, Jains, or Sikhs. It includes the Hindu Marriage Act, the Hindu Succession Act, the Hindu Minority and Guardianship Act, etc.

- Muslim Law

Governs individuals who follow Islam. It deals with issues like marriage (Nikah), divorce (Talaq), inheritance, etc.

- Christian Law

For individuals who follow Christianity. It includes the Indian Christian Marriage Act and the Indian Divorce Act.

- Parsi Law

Governs the Parsi community in India. It deals with marriage and divorce according to Parsi customs.

2. Special Marriage Act, 1954

For individuals who want to marry outside their religion or for those who do not want to marry under any religious customs.

3. Indian Divorce Act, 1869

Governs divorce matters for Christians in India.

4. Guardians and Wards Act, 1890

A secular law relating to the appointment and responsibilities of guardians.

5. Adoption

Hindu Law permits formal adoption, and it has provisions for it. However, Muslims, Christians, and Parsis do not have a personal law allowing formal adoption. They can, however, take a child in 'guardianship' under the Guardians and Wards Act.

6. Maintenance and Alimony

This is provided under both personal laws and the Code of Criminal Procedure.

7. Domestic Violence

The Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005 provides for the rights of women to be protected from domestic violence and to receive compensation in case of abuse.

Each personal law has its provisions. However, in general, courts in India prioritize the welfare of the child when deciding on custody arrangements.
