3. Divorce & Matrimonial Disputes Law Practice- (Supreme Court of India, Delhi High Court, Allahabad High Court, District Courts of Delhi & NCR, District Courts of various other States)

 

The Firm`s Divorce law practice is headed by Mr Tripathi who has a success rate of in excess of 90% in matters of divorce cases. He has to his credit more than 400 divorce cases successfully handled for his clients in Delhi and NCR and also takes great pride in having saved more than 100 marriages in Delhi and NCR in the past 12 years of divorce law practice through effective mediation, counselling and reconciliation efforts.

 

Divorce Law is one of Mr Tripathi`s forte, and in such cases he begins by offering consultations in matters of matrimonial discords. 1 hour may not seem like a lot, but it is sufficient time for him to obtain an overview of the situation, and render advice to assist in determining what the next step ought to be in case a client is looking for a divorce, or is not sure, or is in fact wanting to reconcile and save his/ her marriage.  

Marital discord can be a traumatizing experience. Hence the firm follows a policy of saving marriages, as far as possible. All conciliation options are exhausted and numerous tries are made for re-conciliation by mediation, and only in cases where Mr Tripathi finally opines that the marriage is better off dissolved after having made serious efforts in saving it, do we resort to divorce. We aim to amicably resolve family issues through the use of mediation and negotiation wherever possible. We employ strong negotiation techniques. It is in the interest of all involved if the parties reach an amicable settlement.

Many personal issues can be brought up during divorce proceedings, and we aim to resolve these, whether by agreement or litigation. We settle cases on our clients` behalf by negotiating from a position of strength and skill.

Out of the 400+ divorce cases that have been dealt with by the firm in the last 12 years, over 90% of them have been settled amicably by mutual consent whether within days of hire of the Firm`s services or sometimes even after more than a year of a contested divorce which later is converted into a Divorce by Mutual Consent once the parties arrive at an amicable settlement.

In matters of divorce litigation, Mr Tripathi is often called upon in the most difficult of cases, where there is no precedent, or in cases where the previous lawyer had done a very average job and the client is looking for a change and decides to hire the best divorce lawyer in town. Once such case was when Mr Tripathi was hired to obtain a divorce in a matter of Divorce by Mutual Consent on-line through video conference and teleconference where one spouse was located in Panama City in Panama and the other in Toronto in Canada while the Divorce proceedings lay in the district court at Tis Hazari, which Mr Tripathi successfully handled in the year 2006.Mr Tripathi is one of the first and foremost Lawyer`s in India to have had success in a case of such nature.

Mr Tripathi also provides advice on pre divorce planning and strategies helping clients protect their wealth and property from becoming targets of exaggerated alimony and maintenance suits and further in preventing harassment and difficulties that clients may face in the event of cases filed against them by their estranged spouse u/s 489A of IPC read with sec 3/4 of Dowry Prohibition Act or in cases of Domestic Violence.
