What are the mediation procedures in Divorce cases:
Background:Wife files for Divorce u/s 13 (on grounds of cruelty). Husband submits a counterclaim (u/s 23 a HMA) agreeing her plea (to accept divorce) if wife agrees to pull off the criminal cases against him & his family.Wife doesnot agree to this and next date of hearing is scheduled a week after.
The case is likely to be referred to mediation center. Please guide the subject on the proceedings during mediation center.
-Who all will be attending the mediation?Husband & wife alone. Can any relative join the mediation. What if the other person is not willing to involve a third person (excluding the mediator).
Frequency of hearing dates: The subject resides 1000 kms away & so cannot attend the hearing so frequently. Is there any guidelines on the frequency of hearing dates, duration of mediation proceedings etc
-If during mediation, the opposite party tries to harass/humiliate the subject, what should he do. He has no help in that city (except his counsel). Can subject be physically assaulted in court premises??
