There are so many things I have to presume you both are in Australia and presume that you are citizens there then your divorce proceedings are governed according to law there then hindu law is not applicable if you are contesting the case you can prove that his affidavit is false then i think divorce will not be granted

Dear, as per law your divorce should be as per Hindu law but there is condition that if you contested the divorce even if it is in Australia as per their law then that divorce will be valid in India. Only one sided divorce is not valid. But there are many points and judgments of supreme court of India, which could help you.
