Yes, Family Courts are receiving filings though not regularly working. Daily 20 cases will be taken up on priority basis. Once registered new case summons/notices will be issued to the other side. it will take 60 days to be served. You may peruse different circulars on the High Court  web site.

The address of the family courts is as follows'

Dear Ma'am, 

The courts will accept the petition but will not hear the matter on priority as it does not fall under the category of "urgent" matters. It is advisable that you file the petition now. The court would issue summons to the husband and by the time he files his reply you can expect the situation to get better. 

Best wishes.
