For Petitioner(s) : Mr. Shantanu Bansal for Mr. Peush Nag
For Respondent(s) :
HON’BLE MR. JUSTICE M.N.BHANDARI
By this writ petition, a challenge is made to the order dated
4th May, 2017.
Learned counsel submits that after ex-pate proceedings on
the application under Section 25 of the Guardian and Wards Act,
the matter was finally heard. At that stage, an order has been
passed for presence of the son to find out his desire. It is taking
into consideration his age. The son is residing with the mother for
(2 of 2)
last 14 years thus he would not recognise the petitioner. In those
circumstances, desire of the son would be as an empty formality.
The petitioner should have been given visiting right before calling
son so that he may give proper desire. In view of the above,
impugned order deserves to be set aside.
I have considered the submission made by learned counsel
for the petitioner and perused the record.
I find no illegality in the impugned order. The child at the age
of 15 years is considered to be matured enough to make his
opinion as to whether he wants to reside with mother or father. If
petitioner had no opportunity to visit the son, he was at liberty to
make an application to seek visiting right which can be filed even
Taking into consideration the aforesaid, I do not find any
illegality in the impugned order. While dismissing the writ petition,
liberty is given to the petitioner to make an application for visiting
