MAIN COST, WHICH IS EXPENSIVE IS ADV FEE.

IF YOU PREPARE IT BY YOUESELF AND ATTEND COURT IN PERSON IT COSTS PRACTICALLY NOTHING.SAY ABOUT RS 250/-.

please change your lawyer otherwise he will entrily take your properties all with out getting divorce.Do you remember one Gentleman has got divorce at 85 years old. That is your life to just kill your wife take 14 years of jail come back and start new life. if not marry another girl and go to jail for 3 years after come back you can live with yoru second wife.

 

This is practical in india. if you believe court and lawyers and judges remember recently 17 judges are dismissed in U.P., Its proved all judges are not working hard. Instead of paying for divorce you can pay for murder case or you can pay for adultry case. Atleast meaningful divorce case is endless, if your wife does not want to give you divorce, if she lives with ohter person you have to produce her relationship video to the judges after several times of view he will pass it to the lawyers then all will view and call for your wife and check whether the body in the video is same with your wife. if not they do a insert test.

 

Bull sh*t donot believe indian court and lawyers and judges everybody is the theif. supreme court shouting with all, no one will listen.

National average for professional fees for filing divorce suit is @ 0 for METRO WIFE 


"BUT TO FIGHT A DIVORCE CASE AN EXPERIENCED LAWYER IS MUST  ISN'T IT? "

Take: Yes, what a HUSBAND needs to contest Divorce is not honesty but PASSION for men's cause.

On an average and current statistics suggests that:-

If husband files a case it takes around 5-7 years in court

If wife files a case it takes around 3-4 years in court

(whether he/she has a lawyer or not)

And If it goes in appeal then additional 2-3 years minimum

 

 

Females are entitled for free legal aid if they ask for. also they are exempted from any fees.

 

For Males, if annual income is very low (probably less than 20 k) they are also eligible for free legal aid (legal sevices authorities)

 

 

 

But it is not manadatory that one appoints a lawyer.

 

 

Proceeding fees are minimal, contact the registrar/Public information office in family court. They are appointed to help people and cater to enquiries.

 

 

If you file any affidavit on your own, either carry original+xerox of your pan card/driving/bsnl/light bills and xerox. and attach it your affidavit (just one is enough if you are making more than one affidavit on that day)

 

Self identification is allowed,
Else carry a relative/friend and ask him to sign as witness for affidavit (and that person has to carry his docs as above to identify himself)

 

If you don't want above ask any lawyer there. the oath commissioner notes it as 'identified by person to whome I know'  but lawyer (and oath commissioner) may expect a few hundred bucks atleast for that signature.


To make any affidavit, there are no other charges.

 

 

Lawyers have contacts inside, but you can also talk to all those people (like bailiff and bench clerk etc)

 

But drafting of divorce petition is a skill (although not a very rocket science)

 

Better draft your petition on your initially and keep it as a draft, go through the internet, visit the court for a few times and get a feels of it.

 

All above is not as easy as it looks (well it shouldn't even look easy actually. otherwise thre would not have been lawyers. but it is a grim reality that every profession has dark sheeps)

 

Go through the info 'how to select a lawyer'. speak to at least 10 lawyers. tell the scenarios in different fashion or inselective mannaer as well as the same scenarios and check their answers.

 

May be, for that you have to shell out a few bucks.


OR go through references. Tell your objectives and priorities.

 

 

Or atleast go through LCI and other websites thoroughly and then decide.

 

 

10k is too less amount to expect any service from a GOOD lawyer!!!

 

Initial consultation fees, periodic consutation fees, fees for drafting each application, proceesing fees in court (very minimal 50/-), fixed fees for each hearing date (it may drag for atleast 2-3 years) , if need to go for appeals/revisions/injunctions/stay  to appellate court those costs extra.


Everything which is paid during trial goes from the client's pocket (everything!!  :) )


Also don't expect lawyers to finish of the case quickly/or expedite the case (it depends on the other party also)

 

If you are a culprit in reality (let's assume) but going to court as petitioner, lawyers have to spend extra enenrgy to make you look like a victim ....so it costs more.

 

If you are not victim nor culprit and whole suit is trivial, still it may cost more as thay would spend more energy to make you look as a grave victim.

 

If you are a real victim, them beware of other party's lawyer .... he may buy up your lawyer!! So it may cost you more if you want to avoid your lawyer getting bought!!
