Hi, My name is Pardeep. I just want to discuss I am an Australian resident my question is that if I get divorce in Australia do i need to get divorce again in India as well?
Whether your marriage took place in India as per Indian laws, Hindu religious rites and caste customs?, if so this issue is very sensitive.
You can apply for divorce in Australia, conduct the proceedings by summoning her for the trial proceedings. On receipt of summons either she may contest or agree for mutual consent divorce, the resultant divorce or dissolution of marriage by a decree of divorce made in Australia is valid in India, you need not apply for divorce again in India after that, but if the divorce was granted 'exparte' by a court in Australia, it may not be valid in India, and as per Indian laws you both will still remain couple married to each other.In such a circumstance you may have to apply for divorce again in India for getting your marriage dissolved as per law.
Try and look for an amicable solution with her through mutual consent itself.
