Legal  Opinion

1. It appears that you have some miscommunication with your Lawyer. Either change the lawyer or take proper guidence from him.

Decree for Restitution of Conjugal rights is usually for one year and gives ann opportunity to husband and wife to reconcile. If court feels there is scope fo reconciliation it may even ask the parties to meet a marriage counsellor. However once the RCR period is over and still husband and wife wish to seek divorce you should go to court and ask for it.

 Restitution of conjugal rights. — 7 [***] When either the husband or the wife has, without reasonable excuse, withdrawn from the society of the other, the aggrieved party may apply, by petition to the district court, for restitution of conjugal rights and the court, on being satisfied of the truth of the statements made in such petition and that there is no legal ground why the application should not be granted, may decree restitution of conjugal rights accordingly. 8 [ Explanation. —Where a question arises whether there has been reasonable excuse for withdrawal from the society, the burden of proving reasonable excuse shall be on the person who has withdrawn from the society.] 9
