Dear client, 


Service of summons or notice is mandatory in DV cases. Hence do not worry. Even presence of Respondent personally is not mandatory.

Dear sir,

The purpose of summons is to compel your attendance in a court of justice. Now, this attendance can be “in person” as well as “through Counsel”. Therefore, you need not to worry about staying back in india for such purpose. However, (as and when the trial proceeds further), there may be times when you are required to be present in person for a hearing, which obviously cannot be deferred with and you will be obliged to come back for a day or two. If your concern is that you will have to be present in the court at all times, during the entire proceedings then i would suggest you, not to worry.

Having said this, all this happens when you receive a summons in the first place which as of today you haven’t. Therefore, you are a free man. No summons can stop you from going abroad. You can happily join your work abroad along with our best wishes.
