You dont have to wait for him to return to India. Your sister can file for divorce. If he does not come, your sister can get a divorce by setting her husband exparte. If you dont know his abroad address, you can send the court notices to the address in India. If you need any further advice/assistance kindly contact me.

Hello, When your sister has proper ground on which a divorce can be sought, then the fact that her husband is staying in abroad and refusing to come here doesn't have any bearing on your case. you can still file the case stating both his local address and foreign address. Only when you file mutual consent divorce does you need both persons to come to court while filling. Your sister's husband has the option of appearing through another person by giving a power. Hence, Husband staying abroad isn't a hindrance at all.
