I am a Husband who have filed for contested divorce 15 days ago and case was registered 7 days ago. Wife is staying at her parents home since last 2 months.
I checked case status on "ecourts" website and found out that summons is not yet sent. When I checked status of other contested divorce petiotions filed, in some of the cases summons was sent within 2-3 days of Registration Date, in some case on the same day as well.
I asked my lawyer about summons status and he asked me to come tomorrow to collect summons and said that I will have to post the summons myself.
1. Does court sends summons on it's own after petition is registered?
2. Do I have to post the summons myself?
3. Can my lawyer post the summons without asking me to visit him?
I also asked my lawyer whether the summons can be sent via email. He said only if summons by post fails then email can be used to send summons.
4. Is there any such requirement to send summons via email? What is the procedure to send summons via email?
I want the divorce process to be completed as soon as possible. What actions/precautions can I take so that summons is received by the wife with minimal delays?
