To file reply to your divorce petition the time presctibed in statute is 30 days.........there are ways people avoid and delay this...but in a situation where the reply has not come forth for over two years ask ur counsel to move an appliction under Order 8 Rule 10 and seek an ex-party decree of divorce.


but the facts mentioned in your question are quite in you got married in dec.2011??? legally seperated..and that too since Nov.2007??? are you kidding???...what do you mean by this???????// and finally you file a divorce petition in 2010????...please correct your facts dude.....


hi sir

my mean she filed all case in nov 2007 from that day we are seperate.not get divorce till 


There is no hard and fast rule for the time limit for a Divorce case .You cant even go for mutual consent Divorce as she is not ready for it . 


No one knows how much time it takes but it does takes time for sure..Though the provision of MCD is there for sppeding it up but its only applicable when both the parties agree to it..


Brother Rajesh,

in indian judiciary the matters concerning the matrimonial cases are considered causiously. Courts are inclied to dispose off the matter in speedy because a possibility of reunion after consilation are aspired.

So time is not prescribed.

I wish someone could predict the time in courts.

If she still do not want divorce, enjoy life.
