Abstract
This article attempted to examine the utilization of remittances forthe well-being of households
at the origin. We conducted this study in District Bagh of Pakistan administered Kashmir. We
engaged epistemological cannons in the positivistic tradition of quantitative research design.
Moreover, we applied the cross-sectional research method. We collected data from (N=200)
familieson the household level. The families were identified and enumerated by employing a
snowball sampling technique. An interview schedule was designed to collect the data. Hence, the
data were collected, checked, and analyzed.Findings of Chi-Square analysis revealed remittances
as a major source of income for households. We, thus, found that remittances significantly
improved the socioeconomic conditions of families. Primarily, families utilize remittances either
to develop or promote existing businesses. Similarly, remittances are spent to repay the debts,
spend on the construction, and maintenance of houses. In the same fashion, remittances were
used to improve the family livelihood, health, and education of the children. Moreover, financial
status improved social status by purchasing vehicles and participating in social events. It is
therefore concluded that families utilized remittances for the sake of the wellbeing of families at
the origin.

Key words: Migration. Remittances, wellbeing, Household, Culture, Income
