The problem:

 The application aims to introduce all the rights of Saudi females in general and specifically their rights before Personal Status Courts (family legal matters), such as child custody, divorce and alimony lawsuits. The application facilitates the method of filing a judicial lawsuit by Saudi females themselves, as well as explaining all their Shariah and Regulatory rights.

The App provides the following:
1. Free legal information for women
2. Free consultations through the icon: "Free Legal Advise"
3. List of Independent lawyers that provides free consultations only through the icon: "Lawyers Directory"
