Dear Query, Under no matrimony laws the divorce can be granted within 1 year of marriage. As your brother had married in May 2017, 1 year will soon complete. It is advisable to sit and resolve differences with help of elderly members of both families. If still things dont work out, you can settle terms and go for mutual consent divorce. Same would take 6-7 months for entire proceedings.

Mental cruelty is the ground of divorce. If his wife constantly torture him then he make complaint in police station and file divorce case into family court. But keep in mind that there are lot of woman's protection laws available and she will misuses them.she also try to invole your whole family into legal cases of 498A,domestic violence, maintenance. You have to prepare for all legal tragedies. So kindly request to court for judicial separation and safety. Records all threats and keep all massages of her and submit into court as an evidence.and humbly request for divorce. Your family unity will won the case.good luck
