My wife filed a divorce petition stating MENTAL cruelty as the ground. My marriage is one year old and she lived with me only for five months and for the last several months she is with her parents. Attempts to talk to her or her parents resulted in only me and my family getting insulted for no reason. She is claiming the normal misunderstandings and some arguments we had as torture. I am ready to give her divorce on mutual consent as I cant live with her after such unacceptable behavior, but the girl's family is arrogant and not ready to talk anything with us. Just because they are being adamant does not mean we are at fault.
When I talked to my lawyer , he was saying if the girl says mental cruelty in the court then the court will not ask for proof and divorce will be granted on her favour even if I defend the allegations against me. What I wanted to know is
1. is my lawyer correct in saying that no proof is required if girl claims MENTAL cruelty? should not they prove it in the court?Does not the court takes the circumstances under consideration?
2. Lawyer is saying not to contest as any how the divorce will be granted to the girl easily as the court has soft corner for women. My question is , Me and my family were the one who got abused and the girl's family can easily get away accusing us falsely?
I agree if I do not want to live with her contesting is waste of money and time. But I am willing to sacrifice these things to clear my name out of allegations as I am truly innocent.
Please advice on the above questions and let me know if there are any law to bring the girl and her family to justice and prevent the girl getting away easily after screwing my life.
