Limit for skipping dates



Please apologize me as I posted this question under a wrong Sub-category on this forum.


My question falls under section 9 of HMA sub-category.


I have seen 8 dates being passed over by the trial judge for "framing the issues" spanning a period of more than six months.


I am surprised, although I do not have a right to question the Judge, how can he ignore so many dates only to frame the issues for the petition under section 9 HMA pending before him.


Is there any limit by law (in terms of the number of dates a Judge can skip over) within which he has to dispose off the question (framing the issues) in-hand?


Please remember section 21 HMA provides for a speedy trial to be completed within six months under the HMA.

Prolonging a case is not the desire of any judge or a court.It depends on the respective lawyers. Generally in family affairs considerable time is given to both the parties so that there could be some reconciliation between them.

@mrs choudhary......with refernce to your reply, wanted to know, even if either of the two win the RCR case, in case the wife filed RCR and husband defeats her RCR, and it is dismissed, in this case too, should the husband wait for a full year to file for divorce on RCR dismissal grounds?
