    What is Family Law?

    India is a land of diversity – of different religions, beliefs and faiths. Currently in the absence of Uniform Civil Code, aspects relating to family such as marriage, divorce, adoption, inheritance, succession, etc., are regulated and governed by different sets of personal laws such as Hindu Marriage Act 1955, Muslim personal laws, Parsi Marriage & Divorce Act 1869, Special Marriage Act 1954, Guardians & Wards Act 1890, Hindu Adoptions and Maintenance Act 1956, Hindu Minority and Guardianship Act 1956, Hindu Succession Act 1956, Indian Succession Act 1925, Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act 2000, Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Divorce) Act, 1986.
