Search on Google: Understanding the Intricacies: How Can a Husband Navigate Through Matrimonial Dispute and Custody Applications in Chandigarh’s District Court?
1. I am currently residing in Chandigarh and have been married for seven years. My wife and I have been having irreconcilable differences for the past two years, and we have a five-year-old son. We both are financially independent, but she has been the primary caregiver of our son. Now, we’re considering divorce and I am worried about the custody of our son. Can you explain the basic principles that the Chandigarh District Court uses to determine child custody in a divorce case?
2. As I understand, the court’s decision is based on the best interest of the child. But how does the court define this ‘best interest’? What factors will be considered in our case given that my wife has been the primary caregiver but I also have been actively involved in our son’s upbringing?
5. In case the court grants custody to my wife, what rights will I have as a non-custodial parent? Can I still be involved in major decisions related to my son’s upbringing?
6. Lastly, how long does the whole process of divorce and custody determination typically take in Chandigarh District Court? Are there any ways to expedite this process?
