Family Law: Lawyer Laila Rana

The South Asian community is a broad and diverse community that varies not only by ethnicity, geographies, history, culture, religion and immigration generations; rather, is further stratified through a Western/Eastern interactive experience. When it comes to divorce, the experiences of South Asian women and families are vastly diverse. In order to acknowledge and better understand the implications that South Asian women must face when it comes to divorce, it is vital that we recognize that relationship violence, alienation, and stigma exists in all communities in different facets; and issues of race, class, immigration, language, finances, resources and gender always play a key role.

To talk about these issues and to answer the questions our listeners had, Lawyer Laila Rana steps into RedFM Studios and chats with Sameer Kaushal.
