In my friends case, a case has been filed in another state family court by her husband (from his paternal state, not where the couple stayed for 14 years). However somehow she got a lawyer in the state (husband paternal state), husband family have relationship with bar association of the state, hence the hearing dates are scheduled on short notice (first hearing 26/07 - "Apperence of parties", second hearing on 10/08 - "exparte evidence").
However we are not sure if our local lawyer actually visited or are bar association ppl playing some trick as the next hearing is in short period (even during covid times, secondly the wife is staying in same house after marriage for 14 years which is in different state and she is a working women, house is in husband name which he left year back) and hearing says "exparte evidence"
Not sure what does this "exparte evidence" mean? Is it ex-parte? If yes then not sure did our lawyer actually go to court or is bar association playing trick here.
Please help with your advice on how to deal?
it is for a mother in another state, who is getting this divorce notice under indian divorce act 10, case type OP after marriage of 14 years.
