quesGot proper relief as prayed for. Now again filed case outside india.

a divorce was ordered in tamil nadu, two yrs before by the application filed by wife, in sub court of tamil nadu, order accordingly prayed for. Again wife filed petition in Singapore court for recovery of dowry. is it possible to file a case against husband in Singapore or not? What is the proper jurisdiction for the above case if it is extra territorial or not? Please clarify my doubt.

  • ansAfter divorce in India , no relation of husband and wife exists. Thus, subsequent petition is baseless. Courts at Singapore recognise Decrees passed by Indian courts. The alleged matter may be contested appropriately.
