How We May Assist You

1. Registration Of Marriage

In today’s transnational and globalized world, it has become quotidian to meet people from diverse cultural backgrounds and countries, which might sometimes develop such connections where we want to spend our lives together by getting into a social union

We, at India Law Offices have assisted various clients in solemnization and registration of marriages between two individuals of different nationalities in India. The Special Marriage Act, 1954 is an Act of the Parliament of India which allows solemnization of a marriage between individuals from various countries and cultures irrespective of religion or faith followed by either of them. Our team has assisted various foreign clients in hassle-free registration of marriage, obtaining the marriage certificate and in fulfilling the underlying requirements for the same, for example obtaining an NOC from the concerned embassy from India, etc.

2. Cross-Border Divorce

There are often instances when couples get married in India, under Indian law, and shift overseas to begin their marital life. But when such marriages do not last and disputes occur, both parties, or either one of them, seek divorce. The opposite is also possible – when NRIs marry abroad in accordance with foreign laws but one of the parties’ files for divorce in India. This creates confusion as to which law will prevail in case of a divorce proceeding and whether decrees passed by one jurisdiction are applicable to another. Divorces are always a tricky matter, and even more so when they occur cross-border, in different jurisdictions and under different laws. Getting married in one jurisdiction and seeking divorce in another can often lead to procedural ambiguities. Therefore, our team at India Law Offices is well aware of all the procedures wherein such ambiguities can be avoided and has assisted various clients in getting their foreign divorce i.e divorce granted by a foreign court, recognized by the Indian Courts of the competent jurisdiction, which has eventually led to cancellation of marriage certificate.

3. Adoption

All inter-country adoptions, whether it is an adoption of an orphan or an abandon, or a surrendered child, or adoption of a relative’s child, can be done only as per the provisions of the Juvenile Justice Act, 2015 and Adoption Regulation Act, 2017 (framed by CARA). These provisions give effect to the Hague Convention on adoption, to which India is a contracting party & therefore, India is obligated to adhere to its conditions. Our lawyers at India Law Offices LLP, are well acquainted with the necessary procedures and regulation and have assisted clients in successful legal adoptions.
