1) file for divorce by mutual consent . 

2) 6 months mandatory cooling period is necessary . 

3) your husband can execute power of attorney in favour of family member . 

4) at time of second motion your husband can give give his consent for divorce to the family court through video conferencing facility

1. Well after two years from date of filing of mutual divorce petition the case will be dismissed. He shall have to come within one year from date of filing the case.
2. So proceed accordingly. In her absence the order will not be passed.

Both of you can apply for mutual consent divorce. If he is going abroad after 2 months then he may execute a Power of Attorney (POA) in favour of any of his relatives to appear in the court along with the lawyer he will engage. This is the only way in which divorce proceedings can reach a logical conclusion in the absence of your husband.

1) after filing of divorce petition if your husband does not appear in court or engage an advocate   court can grant you divorce decree . 

2) generally if party does not appear for more than 3 consecutive dates  after receipt of summons  court s grant divorce exparte on basis of your evidence

In mutual divorce no proof is required nor any allegations can be levelled.
 Unless your husband makes his presence recorded and gives  his consent on the date of final hearing no divorce would be granted.

Hi, it is better you have to  file a  petition for divorce on the ground of cruelty and ask your husband to appear before the court and give consent for the divorce so that the matter will be completed with in two months.

First of mall the grounds what you have stated may not be proper and supportive to the proposed divorce case.  This cannot be a reason or ground for divorce. Mere misunderstanding will not be accepted as a ground for divorce by court and the petition will be rejected. 
It is always better to go for mutual consent divorce in which no question of any other issues will be raised. If he is leaving India, ask him to return to India at least for one day for appearing before court for second motion so that the divorce can be granted, the video conferencing in divorce cases are generally not entertained due to the nature of the case.

If you unilaterally file for divorce and your husband does not turn up in the court you will get divorce.
