If the opposite party not appearing in court in spite of service of court notice to it, the court being satisfied, proceed ex-parte and decide the case in favour of the petitioner. Usually almost one year takes place even in such cases because the Family Court usually sent few summons to the respondent before substitute court notice service is ordered through newspaper publication all this takes 6-10 months time and after that few dates for recording the ex-parte evidence of the petitioner and only after that the order is passed followed by decree of the divorce.
If your husband not appearing in court seek the order for substituted service of notice to your husband by newspaper publication under order 5 rule 20 of the CPC.
