I got married in April 2009 and only after 3 months of marriage we filed a joint petition for divorce by mutual consent in a district court in India. All the financial settlement was done before filing the petition and was presented as a part of petition filing. We have been living separately since then.
Now, almost 7 months have passed from the date of filing the petition and the case will be up for hearing in the court. Our decisions have not changed and we still want a divorce. We both want a divorce decree.
The problem is that i'm working abroad in Australia and cannot come to India for the hearing under any circumstances. Is this fine? Will a decree be granted in my absence? I can provide my employment letters as a evidence that i'm working abroad.
Do i have to send any kind of letter to the court saying that i won't be present for the hearing but my stand has not changed & i still want a divorce? Will this work?
Is there any possibility that in my absence the opposite party(Wife side) can file any other case against me before the court?
