Respected Learned experts,
My friend and his wife filed a div petition on mutualconcnt. Settlement was agreed as lumpsum settlement and 30% was already paid during filing of the petition. The original divorce petition which he filed was then kept unpressed.
Now his wife didn't appear in the court for the hearing after 6 months. He is completely clueless. Only her lawyer appears and takes time for appearence. My question is that is it possible to reopen the original petition which is kept unpressed and ask the court to pass an exparte order in favour of him?
