  • ansYour query seems to reflect the problem faced by a very large number of young Indians who are caught between traditional values and personal choices.  


    The best alternative for filing a divorce is by the way of mutual consent on paying some permanent maintenance /alimony. Alternately you can file a case by filing a petition on either of the various grounds under the Marriage Law to avoid case against you in CAW Cell / DV Act / 125 CRPC - maintenance.


    Grounds for Divorce under the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 are as follows:


    Adultery / Cruelty / Desertion / Conversion to another religion / Mental Disorder / Leprosy / Venereal Disease / Renunciation / Not Heard Alive / No Resumption of Co-habitation.
