If you prove that you have fully cured before the marriage and you are not suffering same afterwards, she will not get null and void decree.


@ Ritu Sharma, Advocate


1. I would like to submit respectfully that as only a advocate can provide legal advice, likewise only a Medical Doctor can make a diagnosis of a disease. Even if the plaintiff is a medical proffessional, a third party medical advice can only provide an unbiased medical opinion. 


2. I would also like to state that the petitioners ( wife) claim that the husband has Schizophrenia is frivolous until proven by medical doctor. 


3. Furthemore, this LCI member belonging to common public assets:-

(a) That more than 121 million people worldwide suffer from depression. Authority:  https://www.who.int/mental_health/management/depression/definition/en/

(b) That Depression can be reliably cured under primary care.


4. In the light of the above, the undersigned asserts that a medical evaluation result proving the presence or absence of the disease, if any should be the starting point for any litigation. 


5. In the absence of a  medical report, there is no leg for litigation.



1.  Can you santize your medical report by removing  personally identifiable information and post to the forum for further analysis ? Since you are interested in saving your marriage, please try to consult a reputed Psychiatrist and obtain medical report for rebuttal. 


2. See @Dipender Kumars post - Try to obtain medical records which can prove Dipenders perspective, ie if you were cured or asymptomatic at the time of the marriage, then marriage cannot be nulled.
