A divorce is among the most traumatic occurences for any couple. To add to this, it can also be a long-winded and costly affair in India if the divorce is contested. Even couples that mutually agree to the divorce, however, must prove that they have been separated for a year before the courts consider their plea.
In India, as with most personal matters, rules for divorce are connected to religion. Divorce among Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs and Jains is governed by the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955, Muslims by the Dissolution of Muslim Marriages Act, 1939, Parsis by the Parsi Marriage and Divorce Act, 1936 and Christians by the Indian Divorce Act, 1869. All civil and inter-community marriages are governed by the Special Marriage Act, 1956.
You gave me the courage to stand up for myself and my son. I said things I never would have said without you there, and when I didn’t know what to say, you stepped in. What a world of difference. I’ve never had an IEP meeting go so well and where so much got accomplished. Thank you.
I had the opportunity to work with Indu for my legal needs. From the first point of contact, she was very informative and articulate. She had open communication throughout the entire process and explained all aspects clearly.
Your expertise was critical in resolving a serious dispute with our school district. It will be great to enjoy the summer knowing that our son will be in good hands this Fall. Thank you for your guidance! You helped us more than you can imagine. We're planning on calling you for every IEP meeting in the future.
