Contested Divorce

Contested Divorce in India: How-to Guide on Conditions, Procedure and Laws in India

Contested divorce happens when one spouse alleges the other of one of the few parameters ascertained by law and it is proven. As per law, one can’t get a divorce unless the other party is proven to be at fault, and own conduct is spotless. A bill is currently doing the rounds in parliament which notes the impracticability of the same.

The grounds on which divorce can be contested are:

  • Cruelty: It includes physical or mental torture inflicted by the spouse.
  • Adultery: Being faithful is important, and physical relations outside the wedding on part of one spouse can be a ground for divorce, if proven.
  • Desertion: Abandoning spouse without having a reasonable cause or excuse.
  • Religious Conversions
  • Mental Illness
