Yes as per severety as per doctor certificate it is one of the grounds of divorce. PTSD does not always last forever, even without treatment. Sometimes the effects of PTSD will go away after a few months. Sometimes they may last for years – or longer. Most people who have PTSD will slowly get better, but many people will have problems that do not go away.

Thanks for your reply.. PTSD could be recurring in nature, defense/police/enforcement personnel could be an example of recurring PTSD. In such cases will law tend to soften, considering duty bound occupation?

Your query is related to a ground for divorce or enrolment in military/ para-military service ?

My query is pertaining to grounds for divorce, however trying to understand scenario(s) holistically.

Dr J C Vashista (Lawyer)     30 December 2021

PTSD is not a ground for divorce.
