Is it necessary for both the spouses to attend the court hearing for divorce?

If it’s a case of divorce by mutual consent, it is necessary for both the partners to appear in the court for the recording of their statements. In some rare cases, when the attendee is out of country or seriously diseased, the court of law allows his/her power or attorney for representation in the court but it depends only upon the discretion of court.
