The Court shall then record the joint statement of the parties and pass a First Motion Order giving time of 6 month to the parties to resolve their dispute,however in case the parties are unable to resolve the issues within the stipulated time, the Court shall pass a decree of Divorce. 

You may initiate the process of Mutual Divorce by reaching out to a lawyer who will file the petition on your behalf.
