Divorced in USA - Register in India - Hindu Marriage Act
« on: February 28, 2017, 01:07:34 PM »
Hi,
We got divorced recently in US,by mutual consent and want to register the same in India under Section 13B of the Hindu Marriage Act.
A little background
- US marriage in Jan 2016. Divorce in Feb 2017
- Indian Hindu marriage in Feb  2016
- Divorce court in US - State of Utah

Questions:
How long does it take to obtain a registered divorce in India with divorce papers attached as copy from US?
Should either or both of us should be present in India?
Would there be necessity of any signatures on the legal papers that will be submitted to the court?Can this be done by hiring a layer online?
What is the cost for lawyer / process?

Thanks in advance

Apologies for delayed reply.

Short answer - Both places

We got married in USA first in Jan of 2016. Then we traveled to India and had the Hindu wedding in Feb 2016

I have Marriage certificates both from USA and India. Also the divorce granted by USA court.

Please advice.

Thanks,
Sam

How long does it take to obtain a registered divorce in India with divorce papers attached as copy from US?
Ans: As you have registered your marriage in India then again you have to file a divorce petition on mutual consent for cancel out the registration. It is compulsory

Should either or both of us should be present in India?
Ans: Yes

Would there be necessity of any signatures on the legal papers that will be submitted to the court?Can this be done by hiring a layer online?
Ans: No, it is not possible. Being a lawyer I can help you out drafting or finalizing the petition. But you have to keep lawyer with you when filing the petitions before district judge or before the family court.

What is the cost for lawyer / process?
Ans: I cannot say this in the open forum. It varies from lawyer to lawyer.
