INDIAN DIVORCE LAWS

INDIAN DIVORCE LAWS

Our company, deals with Divorce Laws which is governed under different laws for different religions i.e. Hindu, Sikh, Muslims, Christians, Parsi etc. In India, rules for divorce are connected to religion and they are concerned with their own personal laws namely Divorce amongst Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs and Jains are governed by the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955, and divorce amongst Muslims are administered by Dissolution of Muslim Marriages Act, 1939, Parsis by the Parsi Marriage and Divorce Act, 1936 and Christians by the Indian Divorce Act, 1869. All civil and inter-community marriages are governed by the Special Marriage Act, 1956. In India, Divorce petitions can be filed under two categories namely Divorce by Mutual Consent in which both the husband and wife mutually agree to dissolve the marriage and in Contested divorce either the husband or the wife could file for dissolution of marriage against each other. The duration of a divorce by mutual consent, varies from six to eighteen months, depending on the decision of the court and as per Section 13 (B) of Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 and Section 28 of the Special Marriage Act, 1954, the couple should be living separately for at least one year before divorce proceedings. For the petition to be accepted, the couple should be separated for over a year or two years (as per the relevant act) and should be able to prove that they have not been able to live together. It is, to be noted that, living separately does not necessarily mean living in different locations; the couple only needs to provide that they have not been living as husband and wife during this time period. The reasons for divorce in contested divorce (though some are not applicable in all religions) are namely Cruelty, Adultery, Desertion, Conversion, Mental Disorder, Communicable Disease, Renunciation of the World, Presumption of Death.
