Venerated sir,
As per law of Hindu Marriage Act and Family Court Act you should appear during the time of second motion and file written deposition on oath before the court then second motion will be completed under law. Then after, court will pass divorce after second motion. It is mandatory. Minimum time for passing decree is 1 month. Feel free to call for more information and give your valuable feedback. M
