My story in brief:
My wife filed divroce petition with cruelty as the ground on 11.11.2011.I denied all the allegations as they are straightforwardly false and baseless but as I too want divorce I stated in the response petition that I had no objection to divorce.They at first wanted MCD but strangely filed this petition.I tried to contact them through my lawyer and they wanted to covert the case to MCD but when the joint petition was prepared and signed by me she did not sign readily.Finally, after much deliberation she signed the petititon.The court authorities told that as the hearing had already started it can only be filed on any 'on day' and both parties are to be present in the court room.The next hearing day is on 30.03.2012.
My questions to the experts are:
Will the divorce case be converted to MCD on the next hearing day?Please note that 6months have not passed from the date of filing the divorce case.
Will it get dismissed as saying that the petition was filed as 'constructive collussion with the respondent'?Some ld. member of this forum mentioned this and as a layman I need some more light on this.
If it gets converted to MCD how long will it take for the decree to be passed?My lawyer says it may be 6months from the date of filing the divorce case i.e. 11.11.2011 or from the date of conversion.It depends on the judge.
I had the opportunity of getting thoughtful and worthy suggestions and replies in this hard time and hope for the same.
Thanks in advance,
