I filed divorce petition in Aug 2010, girl filed for sec24 in 1st hearing, I filed its reply. Matter suspended, Judge tried conciliation 2 -3times himself, then case went for court's mediation cell where we wasted 2-3 months & negative report came back. Judge again behaved as annoyed coz the couple were not coming to some solution, gave a long date 6 months away for next hearing.
I noticed now that girl side has not submitted reply to my original divorce petition til now. By the next court date it will be approx 1 yr since I submitted divorce petition. Its all mess as far as sec24 & divorce reply is concerned, he has put case for evidence from petitioner's side.... how & when we will submit rejoinder etc?
Somebody told me that if girl side has not submitted reply to my divorce petition within a stipulated time period, they forgo the right to defend? Is it so.... how 2 proceed further from this point to the best of my favour!
