My wife filed for divorce while 498A and MC cases are pending. I've received the Divorce summons and didn't attend the 1st hearing due to health issues. Planning to attend and file the counter in next hearing. My lawyer was saying if I don't attend the hearing, magistrate might give exparte order and it might impact my 498A. Same allegations from 498A was mentioned in the divorce petition and requested divorce based on cruelty and dissertation. What would be the best option whether to get exparte divorce or respond with counter by denying the allegations and agree for divorce? Experts please advise.
