Ex parte divorce and dowry matter

Hi, I got married in 2014. My husband gave me totally wrong information about his job and qualification. Then he gave me an ex-parte divorce in 2015 but did not return my belongings and 10 Lakh money till now. I filed a case now. Can I get it?

Hello,

You will have to challenge the judgement in appeal. Challenging ex parte divorce now is difficult you should have strong reason for not challenging the judgement.

Yes, I have strong reasons for his qualification and job. But I want to get back my dowry money, ornaments, furniture, utensils. Is it possible or not? Kindly tell me.

As per your concerns!

The time limit to set aside the exparte divorce decree by the same court which passed the decree is 30 days and if you are going for an appeal, then it is 90 days to file an appeal against the decree. However, appeal in the high court against the decree by filing condone delay petition under section 5 of the Limitations Act along with the appeal. An appeal may be allowed by the High court.

Hope it is helpful
