Advantages of mutual divorce
Divorce by Mutual consent saves time, money and energy for both,
Leaves no room for unnecessary quarrel and most importantly avoid washing your dirty linen in public.
The Conditions required under section 13B of the Hindu Marriage Act are as follows:
(i) Husband and wife have been living separately for a period of one year or more,
(ii) That they are unable to live together,
(iii) And that both husband and wife have mutually agreed that the marriage has totally collapsed, hence marriage should be dissolved.
Steps in Court Procedure (13 B)
In all there are two court appearances in a mutual divorce
1. First A joint petition signed by both parties is filed in court. Secondly In the first motion statement of both parties are recorded and then signed on paper before the Honourable Court.
2. Thirdly The 6 month period is given for reconciliation, (the honourable court gives a chance to the couple to change their mind)
3. Fourthly 6 months after the first motion or at the end of the reconcile period if both parties still don't agree to come together. Then the parties may appear for the second motion for the final hearing.
4. Divorce decree will be granted as the Honourable Court may deem fit.
(a) A petition is to be presented jointly by the parties to the marriage.
(b) The parties have been living separately for a period not less than one year. It is doubtful whether it was intended by the legislators that the parties have lived separately by mutual consent or by force of circumstances or situation.
But it does not seem necessary for the court to go into that matter provided the condition of separate living under the same roof of matrimonial home or in separate residence by the parties is satisfied. Unless the consent of any of the parties to such petition is vitiated by coercion, fraud or undue influence, the court ought not travel beyond the statutory condition of its jurisdiction.
(c) The parties have failed for any reason whatsoever to live together. In other' words, no reconciliation or adjustment is possible between them.
(d) The parties have freely consented to the agreement of dissolution of marriage.
