quesWife left soon after marriage. When can i file divorce?

My wife left the matrimonial home after 1 week of marriage and is not wiling to come back. After how much time can i file for divorce?

  • ansAssuming you are Hindus,
    Section 14 of the Hindu Marriage Act provides that no divorce petition can be filed within the period of 1 year of marriage.
    So you would have to wait for 1 year to pass before you could file for divorce.
