Got Mutual Consent Divorce decree in USA. But Passport Office asking to get decree from India
After 1.5 years of living separately, my wife filed for Mutual Consent Divorce from New Jersey, USA and got the judgement in Aug 2022. We both still live in New Jersey. I applied for fresh passport trying to remove Spouse Name. I had provided US Divorce decree/ judgement. But Passport application had kept on hold mentioning to provide the Indian Divorce decree as we got married in India. Got to know if the divorce is mutual with no civil/ criminal cases and if both parties are residing in New Jersey, then that Divorce decree will be valid in India too.
- How/ What to tell the Passport about the same?
- How to get Indian Divorce judgement within 1 or 2 months or less period? We both cannot attend India Courts at the same time for sure.
