Q: How long will it take for divorce settlement when the couple has lived together only 3 months after marriage and have been living separately for 2 years?
A: In the process for applying for Divorce with Settlement, it takes a period of six months after filing the consent application in the family court under section 13B of the Hindu Marriage Act.
Upon filing the application for divorce, a cooling period of six months is given to give an opportunity to the couples, who can change their minds in the cooling period. At the end of six months there is a conciliation of the couple and if they are still adamant then the order is passed accordingly.
Despite the requirement of law, divorce cases can be fought with grace and dignity without mud slinging.
