Hi, Could you please someone explain the proceding for exparte divorce. I feel my lawyer is cheating on me to get more and more money from me. I am out of India so I am not able to verify the actuals. my lawyer had filled divorce petetion in Jan,2005 end in Delhi Saket family court and first hearing was on 25th May,2015. I know the notice will not be served at the mentioned address of my wife as she is absconding and she is not staying the address where she was staying what I know.Lawyer is saying the court has directed to go for newspapaer publication. I am just surprised that how come in first hearing itself ? Can it happen? my Lawyer has already charged 11000 from me extra to pay letegation changes fee for my wife asaying DD need to be submitted in court in wife's name. Now He is saying that he need money to pay in court for paper publication. Can someone tell if we have to pay the same to court or we have to publish ourself and need to show the evidence to court.
Is there any means so that I can go to court and verify evertying there likes when was/is my date and status etc to make sure that my lawyer is not cheating on me?
Thanks in advance on response from you.
