Time period for filing an appeal for Divorce proceeding
Appeal is 90 days from date of decision or receipt of hard copy ? We had applied for mutual divorce at the family court in Bandra in Mumbai on 15th January 2017 and the decision was given on 2nd September 2017 as "Uncontested--CONSENT". However, due to some misunderstanding between us and the lawyer, none of us had applied for a copy of the judgement. Once we realised the mistake, we applied for the copy on 15th November 2017 which we got on 4th January 2018. Now, I have been reading that the time for an appeal (for Hindu Marriage) is 90 days but it does not say from when. I would have assumed that it was from the date the decision was given (2nd September 2017), however looking at this thread, I'm no longer sure. Can someone please tell me whether the period of appeal is 90 days from when the decision is given (2nd September 2017) or from when the copy of judgement is received (4th January 2018)?
