  1. No.

  2. Why the wife is traveling to USA to defend herself before a USA Court when even the Husband never set foot on USA soil! All these defy standard domicile (International Conventions) logics to me?

  3. Under both the Indian and English private international law there are four general rules in respect of domicile: No person can be without a domicile; No person can have simultaneously two domiciles; Domicile denotes the connection of a person with a territorial system of law; and the presumption is in favour of continuance of an existing domicile.
