Where is your friend residing? She needs to file divorce case in family court to get divorce decree to remarry. I am practicing in Family Court in Ahmedabad. You may contact me if your friend is in Ahmedabad.

As she is not staying with her husband more than three years by law she can claim divorce by law. She just have to prove before Court than her husband is not with her more than three years by that she can easily get divorce.
