Query regarding delay in first date of hearing in divorce petition

My friend has applied for a divorce in September and the procedure has not started yet. When will the letter come home? He has been married for about 10yrs and they don't have kids. He is not happy with his wife. He wants to get separated from her. When will they be given the first date for the divorce to start? It's been 5mths now.

Dear client, today all family courts and jfmc are crowded with the cases.standing in a case also takes one year in all courts or more than that period, please note that your advocate must perceive the case, do not expect you will receive letter automatically.please mention from how many years do they are living separately.

If the case is filed in September then your friend should go and check with the department if there ande any objections pending, if so then the objections are suppose to be removed and then you will get the court room no and then the notice will be issued to the other Side.
Thank you
