Dear Sir/madam,

As per the general legal procedure, the courts gives the respondent a call 3 times i.e. 3 opportunities to present himself/herself before the court and make submissions. After which the court declares the case one sided and gives the decision in the favour of the other party – which is called Ex-parte Order. No time can be specified but the time required in completing 3 consecutive (non-appearance) hearings will be the approximate  time to wrap up the case.

If RCR does not happen or is not entertained by the other party then it becomes a valid ground for Divorce.
