Divorce Judgement Validity
We were married in a Church in Kerala. We are both working in Kuwait. My spouse filed for divorce in Kuwait (basis of cruelty mentioned) and I willingly did not contest nor make an appeal. Is the judgement valid in Kerala.
Decree passed by a Foreign Court has either to be executed under Section 44A or a fresh suit has to be filed for its enforcement. A foreign divorce decree is considered to be conclusive under Section 14 of the Civil Procedure Code if it passes the test under Section 13 of the said Code.
