What is Consented Divorce?

As the name suggests, you will have to contest it. Indian laws in general recognizes cruelty (Physical & Mental), Desertion (Period varies from 2 to 3 years), Unsoundness of mind (of Incurable form), Impotency, renouncing the world, etc. Aggrieved party has to take one of the above grounds of divorce and will have to file the case in the Court of appropriate jurisdiction.

The party which files the case has to prove the case with support of ample evidences and documents. On successfully proving the case, divorce will be granted and divorce decree will be drawn up accordingly. The Court’s formal order in the end is known as the ‘decree’. After this either party may appeal in the High Court and then finally the Supreme Court. Normally the process in the Family Court would take anywhere between 2-3 years if contested vigorously.
