Hi, I obtained US ex-parte divorce a couple of years to which my wife in India refused to reply to accept jurisdiction. She continues to live in India and now after 2 years she is willing to settle for mutual divorce. I do not want to start another mutual consent divorce in India. No pending criminal cases filed by either side.
1. I would like to know if I can have her accept my US divorce in court so that we do not have to again file a mutual consent divorce in India and can have the 6 month mandatory waiting period waived ?
2. If the answer to #1 is yes, do I have to be physically present in India for her to accept the US divorce through court procedures ?
