Lawsuits for mutual divorce don't last long as they are processed faster in comparison to a irremedial divorce.
Mutual divorce, as the name implies, is when both parties wish to separate amicably. The conditions required under section 13B of the Hindu Marriage Act are that the husband and wife should be living separately for a period of one year or longer, that they are unable to live together, and that both husband and wife have mutually agreed that the marriage has totally collapsed. A Divorce with Mutual Consent is a relatively swift process in court; however, divorce may not be granted instantly. After filing for divorce, the court may ask the couple to reconcile their differences over six months and make the marriage work. Depending on the circumstances, this period may be reduced. If either party is overseas, the proceedings may be completed using video-conferencing software as well.
