According to the applicant, the marriage solemnized between

Kurukshetra and has lodged an F.I.R. for offences under Sections 323, 34,

406, 498A, 506 IPC with Police Station Kurukshetra University, District

Kurukshetra. Respondent no. 1 is putting in appearance in both the cases.

He has filed the divorce petition against the applicant as a pressure tactic.

The applicant being a young woman, taking care of minor son, aged about 7

years, who is School going, having no source of income, it is difficult for

her to go from her parental place to Ambala to attend the dates of hearing in

the Court there, therefore, the application be accepted.

Notice of the application was given to the respondent, who as per

office report has been duly served through his counsel in the trial Court but has

not turned up to offer a contest.

I have heard learned counsel for the applicant besides going

through the record.

The Apex Court in various judgments has observed that in

matrimonial disputes between the spouses convenience of wife should be

looked into. In that regard a reference can be made to authority Sumita Singh

Versus Kumar Sanjay and another, 2002 AIR(SC) 396 by a Division Bench

of Hon’ble Supreme Court.

In Bhartiben Ravibhai Rav Versus Ravibhai Govindbhai Rav,

2017(3) RCR(Civil) 369, the Apex Court had allowed application for transfer of

the divorce petition to a place where the wife was residing considering various

factors including the distance between the place where the wife was residing

and the place of sitting of the Court where divorce petition had been instituted

and the fact that the wife had filed two cases against her husband in the Court at

the place of her residence wherein the respondent had already put in

T.A. No. 1093 of 2018 3


In Apurva Versus Navtej Singh, 2017(2) Law Herald 966 by a

Co-ordinate Bench of this Court, it was observed that wherever the Courts are

called upon to consider the plea of transfer in matrimonial disputes, the Courts

have to take into consideration various factors like economic soundness of

either of the parties, the social strata of the spouses to which they belong and

behavioural pattern, standard of life antecedents of marriage. Generally it is the

wife’s convenience, which must be looked at by the Courts while deciding the

transfer application.

Keeping in view the contentions in the application and

submissions made by learned counsel for the applicant, in which I find merit,

in absence of any strong circumstance to the contrary, it would be proper and

appropriate if the application is accepted. The same is accordingly allowed.

The petition in question is ordered to be withdrawn from the Court of District

Judge (Family Court), Ambala and transferred to Family Court at Kurukshetra

for disposal in accordance with law.

The parties are directed to appear in the transferee Court on

25.4.2019. Copies of orders be sent to the Court of District Judge (Family

Court), Ambala as well as to the Family Court at Kurukshetra for

information and necessary compliance.
