My wife and I were married in India in Nov 2006 as per Hindu traditions. We are both Indian citizens and work in USA. We filed for divorce in USA and obtained divorce on April 2009.
My wife later filed for divorce in India (Chennai) on May 2009 based on the grounds of cruelty of the Hindu Marriage Act. She requested no alimony/monetary compensation.
Since June 2009, I have so far received around 5 summons to appear in Court, but I chose to ignore it with the hopes of granting an ex-parte divorce. But each time the court sets a next hearing date one month further away. I'm concerned that this might drag on forever.
When can I expect to obtain a ex-parte divorce?
Thank you very much for the advice
