My daughter got married in chennai and would like to get divorce. Can she file the divorce at Nasik where she resides? If the regirtration of marriage done in chennai to be cancelled by separate procedure or automatically stands cancelled once court gives divorce?
The Question Is where is Her Husband.Whether He Is Co Operative For Divorce.If He is In Chennai Or Some Other Place He Could Insist the Jurisdiction..If he is Co Operative For Divorce It Could be Completed In 6 months by Appllying Mutual Consent Where Only Two Visits to Court by Both of Them Would be Required.
@Narasimha, As per the amendment in HMA, only the wife is given opportunity to file the matrimonial petitions from the place where she is residing at the time of filing the petition. Hence, Nasik has got jurisdiction.
DIVORCE CASE WILL BE FILED BY THE WIFE AT THE FOLLOWING PLACE Where marriage has taken place Where husband and wife started living soon after the marriage and prior to separation Where the respondent is residing Wife can also file a case from the place where she is residing after leaving matrimonial home.
