My husband keeps coming to my office and harassing me at work in front of my employer. Can I file for a divorce under Hindu law?
Continuous harassment by your spouse may amount to mental cruelty in some cases, and may even be valid grounds for a divorce. However generally, actions such as creating hurdles relating to your professional life, or humiliating you in front of your colleagues or boss, need to be in addition to other actions such as instituting dishonest cases against you, etc.
However, there is no one strict formula for granting a divorce, and each order for divorce is granted based on the specific facts of your case. Therefore, depending on factors such as the extent of harassment, the mental trauma you have suffered, and the regularity of these occurrences, a divorce may be granted. For legal advice relevant for your experiences, please contact a lawyer.
