I and my ex-wife are Indian Citizens who got married in India and got the marriage registered in Chennai Sub-registrar office as per the Hindu Marriages Act.
We relocated to Singapore and became permanent residents of Singapore in February 2010. We got separated in September 2010. In 2013, my ex-wife filed for divorce on grounds of 3 years of permanent separation and irretreievable break-down of marriage (one of the criterias in Singapore Family Law) and I consented to her divorce request.. We both accepted Singapore as the jurisdiction for the divorce and completed the divorce proceedings in Singapore and the Divorce Decree is granted.
Can I get married in India? Can my ex-wife create any issues with it in the future?
I am told that there is a difference between getting divorced in USA and Singapore and while the USA divorce is not legally valid in India, the Singapore consent divorce is valid in India given that there is a reciprocating agreements between India and Singapore.
Is it still necessary for me to ratify the Singapore Court Order in India? Is it mandatory for my ex-wife to stage appearance in the Indian Court? She has been evasive as she has permanently settled in Singapore along with her family.
