I had filed a divorce case against my wife on the grounds of cruelty and desertion; Notice is served and the case will be referred to mediation soon.
If the mediation is successful and mediation agreement (terms and conditions) will be prepared by Bangalore Mediation Center and passed to family court
what is the procedure after that
a) My lawyer says that the one time settlement amount needs to be paid at the the time of reporting the settement in the open court. what is the right time to pay the alimony amount ?
b) Under what section will the judge pass the divorce decree after reporting the settement ?
c) Will we have to wait for 6 months (since both have agreed to take divorce - will my divorce petition be converted to mutual consent ?)
or the judge based on the mediation agreement immediately pass a divorce decree ?
