Can I have this done if i visit a union council in Lahore even though his city of birth is Karachi? Also I tried calling adv Awais for help but he was very dismissive and not helpful at all.

    • Dear, we are sorry if our attorney didn’t guide you in a good matter. Mainly it’s the afflux of court work which is why Mr. Awais was unable to give you proper time.
      Coming to your matter, MR Rehan you have to contact your concerned Karachi union council to get a union certificate. Other union councils don’t have jurisdiction on these matters. You can give authority to one of your relative based in Karachi to get this certificate.
