Am I eligible for civils services examination ?
Respected sir, I am a civil services aspirant. I got married in 2015. My wife make false allegations and put up dowry harassment case on me. The court summoned me , but I didn't attend in front of court due to some personnel reasons. So the court considered me as an "x party" and granted divorce in favour of my wife. I paid the alimony also.
My doubt is that am I eligible for civil services examination ? Will it show any negative impact on me at the time of interview and enquiry ?

1) you are eligible for civil services exams .
2) there is no criminal case pending against you .
3) court has only granted divorce to wife as you did not contest the false case filed by wife
The exparti divorce proceedings is over and you are no more married,so nothing can come you way.gi ahead with persuing your dream .
The proceedings in court was a civil nature case ànd your non attendance caused to decide exparti divorce against you .no criminal charges.
You can continue with your civil service examination.
This is a civil dispute and hence the case is alos a civil one.
Being party to a civil suit like dissolution of marriage is not damaging as far as eligibility to a government job is concerned and hence you have got nothing to worry.
So prepare yourself and appear in the examination without any doubt for fear.
The exparte divorce decree granted by court shall be governed by civil laws.
Civil laws do not stand on the way to hamper the career prospects.
This will not make any impact to your civil services aspirations, hence you can prepare well, attend the examinations come out successfully.
Respected Lawyers, Thanks for clearing my doubts. I have some other doubts which are disturbing my mind. They are
(1) the court sent me the notices to attend the court on a particular date citing that "petionar pitioned dowry related allegations against you and you are the respondent to respond the allegations " but I didn't attend in front of the court due to some personal reasons.
Here my doubt is "as a respondent i didn't responded to the court..will it means I admitted the allegations in the view of court
(2)How can I furnish my details in my application to uppsc, divorced or married or single ?
If I mention as divorced, the interview panel will question about the happened issue and they may point out me as mistake is mine, even though I did not do mistake. "How can I justify myself in front of interviewers."
if i mention married it means I am not disclosing the happened issue in my life which may create problems in future.

1) you should in your UPSC application mention you are divorced
2) you can mention to interview panel that you did not want long messy legal battle hence did not contest the divorce proceedings
3) do not mention that you are married
4) as you do not have any criminal record and no FIR is registered you can appear for the exams
1. For a divorce case there may be lot of alegations, however it is not necessary that they have to be true.
For dowry related offences there is criminal law as per which this is an offence and if proved, the accused will be convicted and sentenced to undergo punishment which may be imprisonment also.
Thus the releif sought in the civil divorce case is dissolution of marriage and not to punish you for the offence.
Therefore you need not be worried on that aspect.
The interview panel have no business to interfere in your personal affairs, they cannot ask you such questions.
