Are family courts open in chennai/chengalpettu region now ?

Recently i sent a notice regarding my intention to my wife's father and my wife addressed to my in law's address.

Now i wanted to file a divorce petition , but lawyer is saying that divorce related family courts are yet to open in chennai /chengalpattu region.

Basically i lived near Nanganallur region , he said - i can apply only to tambaram or alandur or chengalpattu family courts ? And courts are still closed .


Is that correct ? He says my living address was outside chennai family high court jurisdiction ?

What documents do i need keep it ready for divorce petition filing on grounds of cruelty ?

Can someone share your thoughts.



only for urgent purposes


No ,if it is critical or urgent matter only


Looking to file a divorce petition  ?


Will i be allowed to do that now ? or is there any electronic options available for this ?
