What is Mutual Divorce?

Mutual divorce, as the name suggests, happens when both parties agree to be peacefully divorced. The conditions prescribed by section 13B of the Hindu Marriage Act are that the husband and wife should live separately for atleast one year, which decides that they can not live together, and that both husband and wife accept that the marriage has collapsed altogether.

A Divorce with Mutual Consent is a relatively swift process in court; however, divorce may not be granted instantly. After filing for divorce, the court may ask the couple to reconcile their differences over six months and make the marriage work. Depending on the circumstances, this period may be reduced. If either party is overseas, the proceedings may be completed using video-conferencing software as well.
