Dear Client,
You will need to file for Divorce in the Family Court or the District Court as the case may be on the ground of desertion, if she has deserted you without sufficient cause for a continuous period of 2 years, or divorce can be filed on the ground of cruelty, if during the subsistence of your married life together she has treated you with mental or physical cruelty.Divorce can be filed on various other grounds too as enumerated in section 13 of the Hindu Marriage At, 1955, if the parties are Hindu by religion.
