If you decided to part ways, then a petition for dissolution of marriage can be filed under S.13 of the hindu marriage act before the court of the competent jurisdiction. The grounds of dissolution can be various viz., cruelty, desertion, adultery, suffering from venereal disease, suffering from leprosy, renounced the world, converted to another religion, unsound mind, not heard for seven years or more. If your husband is not interested, then the matter may be contested. But, during the course of the trial, the parties try to arrive at a settlement due to displeasure incurred in the court proceedings.

In one case which i handled, the husband was reluctant to divorce, however, we are using different means through which now husband agreed to dissolve.
