Hi, my partner and I really need help. I am an Australian citizen and my partner is an Indian citizen. Basically, he has been wanting to divorce his Indian wife for more than 5 years, but she keeps refusing to sign any divorce papers. He was forced into the marriage by his parents. They had children and he really did try to make it work, but they are just really not compatible and he can't accept the harsh way she deals with their children, or that she always argues with his parents, and the many times she has threatened suicide if he leaves her (and did actually attempt it once or twice). The whole situation is so sad. His parents love me and want us to get married and want to see their son happy. Nobody deserves this drama in their life. We both met each other, fell in love and now really want to get married but obviously can't until he gets a divorce. Since he is unable to do it in India, could he possibly get the divorce done if he comes to Australia while she remains in India? Would he need her signature or anything from her? The only problem is that they were married in India within the Hindu marriage act, but never registered it and never received any marriage certificate. So would it still be possible for him to divorce this woman in Australia if he doesn't have a marriage certificate in the first place?
