Hindu Marriage Dissolution And Property Dispute : An Analysis Of The Role Of Courts

By Jivitesh Sisodia, Amity Law School, Patna.*


This article, titled "Hindu Marriage Dissolution and Property Dispute: Analyzing the Role of the Court", delves into the complexities of resolving property disputes in Hindu marriage dissolution cases. The Hindu Marriage Act of 1955 governs the legal framework for these cases in India, and disputes can arise when a couple divorces or a family member passes away. Property disputes can be particularly challenging in Hindu dissolution cases due to the emotional and financial implications involved. The court plays a crucial role in determining how property should be divided in these cases. The court considers various factors, such as the financial and personal circumstances of the parties involved, their contributions to the acquisition of the property, and the needs of any children involved. However, there are also challenges associated with court involvement in property disputes. Delays and increased costs are common, and the court's decisions may not always be satisfactory to both parties. As a result, alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation or arbitration may offer potential benefits. These methods can be less costly and time-consuming, and they can give parties more control over their disputes' outcomes. The article concludes by highlighting the importance of identifying best practices for resolving property disputes in Hindu marriage dissolution cases. Seeking legal advice and support can help parties navigate these complex issues and reach a fair and satisfactory resolution. Further research on this topic can also help identify effective strategies for resolving property disputes.
