Punjab and Haryana High Court: In the case of Fatehabad Family Court in Haryana, the Punjab and Haryana High Court held that where the marriage is to be dissolved, it is not necessary to wait for six months. Justice Arun Moonga said in the verdict that the family court should not direct to wait for 6 months in every case.
The High Court said that the time of 6 months is for the possibility of reconciliation between the two parties. The High Court has directed the Fatehabad Family Court to hold the further hearing without giving it 6 months. The husband and wife, who filed the divorce petition, said in the High Court that the decision of the Fatehabad Family Court should be set aside.
Everyone has the right to live in his own way
The High Court said that waiting for six months in such cases would mean increasing the trouble between both the parties. Both the parties have decided not to live together anymore. Every person has the right to live in his own way. In such a situation, one cannot be asked to wait for 6 months unnecessarily. In such a situation, the family court should hear further, giving relaxation of this period.
