What is the cooling off period?

Cooling off period is the time given by the Court to the husband and wife after filing of the petition to obtain uncontested divorce to make up their minds and to decide if they want to continue with the divorce proceedings. This period is intentionally given to the parties by the Court to maintain the sanctity of marriages and to prevent any divorce which was initiated on grounds of a heated argument or dispute.

This cooling off period can be waived off by the Court if it finds it appropriate in accordance with the scenario of the case in hand.
