 Indian Family Law

India has several religions, thus separate personal laws govern Hindus, Muslims, Christians , Sikhs etc. except those living in the state of Goa.  There is no uniform civil code in India.

However recent reforms have affected custody and guardianship laws, adoption law, succession law and laws about domestic violence and child marriage.

One has to be very careful when divorcing other than in an Indian court. Each case needs to be assessed on a case to case basis.

Indian Trust Law

Trust law in India is mainly codified in the Indian Trust Act 1882. Indian law does not recognise “double ownership” and a beneficiary of trust property is not the equitable owner of the property in Indian law.

As per the Indian Trust Act  1882 a trust can be created for any lawful purpose. A trust can be created  by deed, will or even  word of mouth. However trust of immovable property can be created only  by non-testamentary instrument signed by author  of trust and is registered or by will of author. Although Will is not required to be registered, it is desirable to be registered in India in order to avoid it to be challenged.
