In India, divorce laws have seen significant developments to facilitate a more efficient and just resolution of marital disputes. The Supreme Court has played a crucial role in shaping divorce laws, such as ruling on the 6-month waiting period, acknowledging changing marital dynamics, and prioritizing a practical, individual-focused approach to divorce.

The legal landscape in India allows the Supreme Court to exercise its plenary power under Article 142(1) of the Constitution to dissolve a marriage that has broken down irretrievably. This power enables the court to grant divorces without the parties having to wait the usual 6-18 months in a family court for a decree of divorce by mutual consent.

Different types of divorce are recognized in India, including mutual consent, contested, void, and bigamy divorces. Each type comes with specific grounds, procedures, and required documentation. Mr. Ishaan Garg can provide guidance and assistance throughout the divorce process, addressing common questions and ensuring a smoother resolution of the dispute.

For individuals seeking a divorce in India, understanding the various types of divorce available and the associated legal procedures is essential to navigate the process effectively.
