Hello sir,
The legal remedy for your sister is to first go ahead with a legal notice calling upon him to continue the marriage or filing a mutual consent of divorce petition. At the time of filing he can give power of attorney to any one of his relatives. When the matter gets referred for reconciliation we can sort out issues of maintenance of the child.

You can ask your sister to apply for divorce based on the available grounds such as desertion or other grounds and try to serve the notice. If he does not appear, an exparte order will be passed and she would be able to get divorce decree.
