• Divorce without mutual understanding

My sister married a government employee and having 3 kids, 2 boys and 1 girl, girl is the eldest and 25 years old and having mental disorder. Boys are 19 and 15 respectively. My sister and her husband have some personnel issues and leaving separately from last 4 years. Last year she received  divorce notices from her husband and she did not acknowledged it. Now my brother in law married another lady and leaving together. Is there any law in India that if any person can remarriage if there is no response from divorce notice. What is the next step for my sister to get her legal benefits from his husband to look after her children?

Hi, issuance of notice it self can't be called as divorce and you have to verify whether you have received notice or summons from the court. if court has grant an divorce he has every right to remarriage.

mere issue of notice for divorce does not amount to divorce . you are still legally wedded wife . if your husband has married during subsistence of earlier   marriage  then said marriage would be illegal . you can file case of bigamy against him
