My marriage did not last for more than 6months. False 498A was filed against me and my family, along with CrPc 125. For 498A we have got a later date. CrPc 125 still going on and nothing is finalised yet.
I have filed for a divorce on the basis of cruetly. After 4 dates, she appeared before the court and finally judge reffered for mediation.
I would like to know, what exactly happens during the mediation process? Anything important I should keep in mind. Thanks in Advance.
The first step towards divorce: Mediation
There will be a queue of people waiting for their turn, as you saw in the family court, your number [ not much difference will be left by the end of it, your name would have taken the form of a number] will be called out.
Now both of you go in.
Usually it will be a bench of 3 lawyers who act as mediators, at least 2 female lawyers will be there and 1 male lawyer.
They will ask you whats your story?
You tell yours, that youve been humiliated to such an extent that you do not wish to continue with her under any given circumstance and that accepting back is ruled out.
If she says she does not want to live with you etc, good for you. The mediators will write down both sides of the story and will ask you to sign, which of course wont have any value, but of evidence that mediation happened and that the process failed or passed.
The mediators will talk as if they are your well wishers [to be precise as if they are your parents].
Dont ever lose cool during mediation, tell each and everything is a polite manner even if the same question is asked a 100 times.
