Dear M'am,

There is no point in continuing such a relationship. There are a number of grounds under Section 13 of HMA to apply for divorce. You can file petition for divorce on the grounds of cruelty, no resumption of co-habitation and desertion. Since both of you are in favour of divorce then please consider the option of divorce by mutual consent too. A related issue is to obtain court orders for custody of the child and alimony. Consult some good lawyer in your area.

I have specialization in multi-jurisdictional divorce and international child custody battles. Please feel free to contact me by email: [email protected]
