Husband absconded leaving the wife, 1 year old girl child. Wife didn't approached any legal agency as she was told by her mother-in-law that her son will return back. After 1 year the mother-in-law died. The absconded person didn't came back even for his mother's ceremony. Police refused to accept the missing complaint given after one year. The wife moved to her parental house with the child. There was no legal divorce papers or documents proving his absconding except an affidavit declared by her, signed by a notarary for the purpose of obtaining ration card / gas connection.
Now 11 years have passed away, the wife wants to pursue a new life with a person who is ready to accept her along with the child. What are all the procedures to get her the divorce papers to get married with the another person. Pls guide. The woman was not much educated and in weak economic status. Thanks.
