I am a Hindu and got my divorce by mutual consent through Lok Adalat few years back. Will the lok adalat divorce decree be considered legally valid. I am planning for my second marriage with a person who is a Hindu. I would like to know the documents required for registering the marriage and will the marriage have to be registered under Hindu marriage act or Special marriage act? Thanks.
A Lok Adalat decree/order is a well recognized decree in itself. It is similar to a general magistrate court’s order, there is no difference. If the decree says divorce granted then officially you are single, to get married.
Hindu marriage Act is valid and applicable for all the hindus getting married.
The necessary documents to be presented before the Registrar are :-
- Residential Proof (Voter Card / Driving License etc.) of both the parties.
- Date of Birth Proof (X th or XII th Examination Certificate) of Marrying Persons).
- Passport Size Photographs - four each of Marrying Persons.
- As per the facts of your case mentioned above – Certified copy of Decree of Divorce.
- Two Witnesses
