In India, there are various Laws which govern the principle of Divorce like Hindu Marriage Act-1955, Special Marriage Act-1956, Indian Divorce Act, Christian Marriage Act, etc. These laws basically deals with various aspects of divorce and most importantly laid down the grounds on which divorce can be sought by the spouses against each other. Under Indian Laws, divorce is generally divided in to two parts:
1) Mutual Consent Divorce: In Mutual consent Divorce, a joint Divorce petition is filed in the District Court containing all terms and conditions regarding settlement between Husband and wife. Statement is recorded by the Court. Subsequently, Court calls parties again after six months to get their statement recorded. After recording of statement, Court grants Decree of Divorce and by virtue of same marriage gets dissolved.
2) Contested Divorce: In such cases either of the spouses can file a petition for the dissolution of marriage amongst the grounds available to him/her under the law applicable to them and the petitioner (one who files the petition/case) has to prove his case. On successfully proving the charges and grounds, divorce decree is granted by the Court.

In divorce proceedings, the most complex and emotionally drenching issue is that of child custody. Children, young and at times infant have to bear the pain for no fault of theirs. Due to the extreme emotional attachment, both parents want to keep the custody of the children. In Indian set-up, such question is decided by the court of Guardian and Wards. Welfare of the children is the paramount consideration before the Court while deciding the question as to who is entitled to have the custody of children. Custody of children can be divided in to three parts:
1) Permanent Custody: After determining all issues, Court grants permanent custody of children to one of the party.
2) Interim Custody : During the pendancy of the case and otherwise, court can grant interim custody to one of the spouse. It is also possible that Court grants interim custody of children to the other parent at the times of vacations, holidays etc.
3) Visitation Rights: Every parent has inalienable right to meet and see his/her children. Even after winning the case of custody of children by one parent, other parent can not be denied the right to meet and see his/her children. In disposing of such cases, Court awards reasonable visitation right to the other parents and fix up the time and days for the meeting with his/ her children so that the emotional ties are not broken between the child and the other parent.
