Court gave 4 months later date of divorce. How get it done quickly?

My daughter was married before three years. For the last more then one year, she is living with us. No one from her in laws has come forward for any talks. Actually her in laws are not educated and they always misbehave which is not tolerable. We have offered them to file petition u/s 13B for divorce by mutual consent but still they are not coming forward. We have now filed petition for divorce and the date fixed by Court is after four months. Can we ask for quick hearing of relief?

If the divorce proceedings are already in place, you can file an application for early hearing to get a shorter date. In the said application, you will have to state the reasons why you want an early hearing. The application will be considered by the Family Court and decided on merits.
