However, the man filed for divorce from her in a court at Ontario in May 2015 and gave his parents’ address of India as the contact of his wife.The woman has alleged that her in-laws concealed the court notice from her for one year, making it easy for her husband to get an order in his favour on the ground of no reply from the spouse within one-year period specified by the court.

“We received the Canadian court’s notice on our address in a mail sent from Rohtak post office in May 2016, more than a year after it was issued. It was shocking since my daughter was staying with her in-laws on weekends when she came to Rohtak from Noida where she was working,” said the woman’s father, a city based doctor, who too requested anonymity.

The woman said by engaging a local lawyer, they wrote to the Superior Court of Justice in Ontario explaining the course of events in which they received the notice, following which the court allowed them to file their reply and contest the petition over phone from India.
