Types of Divorce in India

Un-Contested Divorce with Mutual Consent in India.

Mutual consent means that both the parties agree for peaceful separation. Mutual Consent Divorce is a simple way of coming out of the marriage and dissolve it legally.

How Long Does It Take?
Although, this procedure is much easier and quicker than the tedious contested divorce process, yet, it doesn’t happen at the drop of a hat. It still is a legal proceeding that consumes time. The process ends up in 2 hearings also referred to as “motions”.  The law prescribes a mandatory cooling period of 6 months to be observed between the two motions, hoping for any chance that the couple might withdraw the idea of divorce. 

Can the Mandatory Period of 6 Months in Mutual Divorce be Waived off?
In a recent Judgment, Amardeep Singh Vs. Harveen Kaur in civil appeal no. 11158 2017, the Hon’ble Apex court made an exception by waiving off the period of 6 months in a mutual divorce petition observing that the history of litigation and umpteen failed attempts of reconciliation over the course suggest that biding down parties by law for another six months will only hamper the interest of justice.

Following conditions for a divorce by mutual consent have to be met as per the Section 13B of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955

  • Married for at least 1 year on the date of filing.
  • Living separately for at least 1 year.
