go to the court personally.

collect the summons by hand.

After presenting a case before the court, the court will examine and verify all the details and once satisfied about its maintainability, it will be numbered and the process for summons to the defendant/respondent will be ordered to be issued. This alone will take atleast four to five working days and after that the processing section will send the notice by post or through Ameen, it will take another 10 to15 days, your wife has filed it on 26.12.2013 only, wait for another 15 days from today.

if u want to start the proceeding early, 

check out the next date fixed, 

appear in the court and file VP.

the case will start.

no need to keep waiting for the summons - u can appear without physically getting the summons.

unless you want to prolong the case and your headache, you can go there personally and get the copyof summons.



Hi All, Thanks for quick advise. we have received the legal notice on 23.12.2013 asking divorce from my wife's lawyer and filed Divorce case on 26.12.2013 and my lawyer given reply telling false allegations and accepting divorce and my lawyer also filed Divorce on 2.1.2014 .
