Can I give divorce to my husband if he lives outside India?

Hi, I am looking for advice in a divorce situation, My husband is not in India as he wanted to work outside India. From almost a year, we are not in touch and there was no communication between us for the abroad job as I didn't want him to go but he left somehow with the help of his family. A few days back he called and abused us badly, I was under pressure of my family to not to separate but now they are okay. What should I do?? Thanks

Definitely you can file divorce petition on your grounds. Now you have one more ground that he abused you badly through call which shows that he don't want to live with you. So many other grounds will be added looking to your situation. For more details contact.
