You have been rightly advised. A divorce petition cannot be filed prior to expiry of one year of separation. An appropriate opinion is possible in such cases only after perusing all necessary documents. The local lawyer is better placed to guide you.

About filing of case after one year is true. but i may guide you properly after meeting with the girl and after seeing your friends snaps and documents of marriage. but i can assure you she will get divorce withing one or two years.

good luck.
