• How to file for divorce?

I am born and brought up in Mumbai. Married to a businessman in Kerala. I have been married for 8 years. For the last 5 years i remained silent knowing my husband's extra marital affair. I cannot take it any more. I am tired of being a slave under house arrest. I have left him and come to Vasai from Kerala. I need to file for a divorce.

You can file for divorce on the grounds of mental cruelty, harassment and adultery in family court at bandra. However, in India, various personal laws are applicable to various communities. It would have been better if you would have mentioned the community that you belong to.

Albeit; assuming the family court would grant divorce based on these grounds. As you are local in Mumbai, you may contact me should you require further guidance.

Thanks.

You may approach a local lawyer with instructions to file a divorce suit on your behalf in a competent court, on grounds of cruelty and harassment.
