Married in India. Husband US Citizen. Girl Indian Citizen. Divorce filed in US. Is divorce valid?
Husband: US Citizen by birth
Wife: Indian Citizen by birth. Got Provisional Green Card after marriage (which is not valid now, since she has not revisited US after returning to India.
Court Marriage on 27 April 2015.
Marriage as per Indian rituals on 16 Oct 2016. (Girl was in India during this period)
Girl went to USA after marriage in November 2016
Lived together for about 6 months. Girl returned to India in 2017.
Divorce plaint filed recently by Husband in USA (in proper Jurisdiction) (with consent of wife, though it is not a joint application)
Grounds of Divorce as mentioned in Plaint :
Relationship between plaintiff and defendant has broken down irretrievably for a period of at least 6 months, pursuant to Domestic Relations Law Section 170 (7)
1. Is USA Court divorce decree valid in India?
2. Does one have to file a plaint in Indian Court to get US decree confirmed?
3. If both parties are representing themselves in US Courts, then can there be any reason for US Court divorce decree not being valid in India?
