For getting mutual divorce you will have to file first motion joint petition under section 13(b1) thereafter after elapsing of 6 months you will have to file second motion

But now after the judgment of supreme Court if both the petitioners are living separately from the m last 18 months then the above-mentioned 6 months period will not be applicable upon them

Mutual divorce can be done in two stages first motion and second motion, and both the motions would take around 7 months but now the supreme court has waiving off the statutory period of six month and now one can get the mutual divorce in a month.

It can be done before six months also if the party moves an application for waiver of six months cooling-off period
Then it can done within 15 days or a month depends upon the discretion of the court

in Hindu Law the divorce will be done in 2 steps i.e First motion and second motion

You have to file divorce mutually court order on that then again you have to move to the court for second motion now a days immediately after completion of first motion
