As the petitioner it is usually you who would apply for the decree absolute. She can apply to the court to prevent the granting of the DA. That said, the court in previous cases very often is supportive of the granting of a DA. The power to delay decree absolute “is an exercise of discretion of the trial judge but that exercise of discretion weights the granting of the decree absolute against the special circumstances very heavily in favour of the grant. I hope that this makes sense. Please rate positive.
