I'm handling such cases in Indian courts where divorce from the foreigners is being sought by Indian nationals. The Family Court in the present given case will proceed ex-parte against the respondent who is living in the foreign country as the service of summon through the Ministry of Law in India and Indian Embassy in her country takes very long time to get expedited and the email of the petitioner or his lawyer will be good ground for the Family Court to proceed against the respondent if no defense is received on the fixed date from her directly or through her lawyer.
The ex-parte recording of evidence of the Petitioner husband will be followed with the argument and final order for divorce by the Family Court. The decree of divorce issued by the Indian court shall be by all purposes valid in all countries in the world. The legalization by the Ministry of External Affairs, in India by affixing Apostil stamp on the certified copy of the judgment, order and decree of divorce issued by the District Court will be required.
