I myself is an ex-merchant navy guy from TS Chankaya. Is your case of mutual consent or contested divorce? It is not necessary to be present for each and every hearing but depends on stage of the case.

Yes you can definitely work but you will have to manage your court dates according to your job, I think which in your profession is not possible.
I need to understand firstly whether it is a mutual consent divorce petition or it is divorce petition on other grounds.
