1. when the petitioner proves his case by leading his/her exparte evidence.

2. till the day when court presumes that there is knowledge about the pendency of divorce petition that can be once, twice, so many times even by other alternative mode i.e. publication etc.

3. yes the respondent or petitioner can appear through lawyer unless court order is passed.

4. as per section 10 of Hindu Marriage Act, court can grant legal seperation for a period of two years in case between these two years, marriage is not consumated then on filing of fresh petition court may grant divorce to either party as per section 13 of Hindu marriage Act.
