A person who marries under the Special Marriage Act and then converts to the partner’s religion is entitled to invoke the jurisdiction of a family court instead of personal law for dissolution of marriage, the Delhi High Court has ruled.

Termed as if you are not living with your husband from many years then it is known as Desertion and it is a ground for Divorce, you may file a case for divorce on that ground.

A divorce case lawyer will help you with the same. He has to get service of summon through paper publication and then only you may get the Divorce decree, by way of Exparte. if he hasn't turned up after paper publication too.
