Divorce filed ’12, NO hearing till July’15. HC says ‘as expeditiously as possible’. How many yrs is that ?

The slow, very slow movement of matrimonial legislation, the amount of NORMAL time taken to finish a case, are all be seen to be believed.

In this case The petitioner filed H.M.O.P.No.202 of 2012, before the learned Subordinate Judge, Pudukkottai, praying for divorce. Husband files counter in Aprl 13, but nothing much happens after that ! So wife runs to HC seeking remedy after approx three years !! All that the HC states is to dispose the case “..expeditiously as possible…” !! There is NO time limit set by the HC. Are there any penalties or other consequences for delay ? NONE seen from the order !!

I can’t understand how ppl still get married believing this system ??
