    So, now i decided to get divorce from her . so plz guide me that if i get divorce in india without her proceedings ,is that decree of divorce is valid in Canada?
    is that ex-parte divorce decree is valid for my immigration to Canada ?

    A divorce obtained in a country other than Canada is a valid and effective divorce in Canada as long as one of the spouses had a “real and substantial connection” with the country granting the divorce. The Canadian Divorce Act requires that the person getting the foreign divorce has been “ordinarily resident” in the country granting the divorce. This means that the foreign country has been his or her place of usual residence for at least one year immediately before starting the divorce proceedings. However, you can file a divorce petition in India on the ground of adultery and an ex parte decree can be attained. Thereafter, you can enforce that judgment in Canada and immigration will not be affected.

    It is better advised that you may consult with an appropriate Attorney who can give a proper guidance in this regard.
