What is simplest and quickest way to get divorce in India? || M & M Law Partners

The simplest and quickest way to get a divorce in India is through mutual consent under Section 13-B of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955. Here are the basic steps involved:

1.Mutual Consent: Both spouses must agree to the divorce. They should mutually decide on matters like alimony, child custody, and division of assets.
2.Petition: A joint petition for divorce should be filed in the family court by both parties. This petition states the desire for divorce by mutual consent.
3.Cooling-off Period: After filing the petition, there's a mandatory waiting period of six months. This period is meant to give both parties time to reconsider their decision.
4.Second Motion: After the cooling-off period, both parties need to appear before the court again and reconfirm their mutual consent for divorce.
5.Decree of Divorce: If the court is satisfied with the consent and all legal formalities, a decree of divorce is granted.
