Divorce through Video Conferencing

hmm, that sounds interesting. While there are thousands of divorces being filed in India stating reasons such as adultery, incompatibility or even that wife doesn’t cook, this was a landmark achievement for our courts. We know that Indian courts takes years to settle a case with more than fifteen hearings. However, in this case, the husband works abroad and had requested the court to allow him to appear for the hearings through VC or Video Conferencing, considering the expense of coming down to India every month. The court approved this request.

Interestingly, a divorce case was handled through VC by a Chennai court last year.

Although the news about people getting divorce due to many reasons (some of them strange) is sad, this measure by the court should be welcomed. Its good to know that courts are living up to the technology around !.


  1. Wow rilly so soon muslims might be allowed to give talak over voice chat!

  3. Sounds interesting…

  4. I think this is yet another example of how not only has technology advanced throughout all stages of our lives but how divorce has advanced as well. Divorce used to be something many people never even spoke about and now it’s so common that people are doing it by video conference. I work for http://www.firstwivesworld.com, it is an online community for women navigating through the various stages of divorce and life thereafter. I learn a little more each day and the stigma of divorce is being lifted a little more each day.

    Just my two cents
