Time to decide suit for dissolution of marriage

Suit for dissolution of marriage is filed under the provisions of section 2 of The Dissolution of Muslim Marriages Act, 1939. There are certain grounds mentioned in that section according to which the suit may be dissolved. 

However, when it comes to the procedure, the family courts are bound to follow the provisions of The Family Courts Act, 1964 and The Family Court Rules, 1965. The time period for deciding a suit for dissolution of marriage is mentioned in the following section of The Family Courts Act, 1964.

12-A. Certain cases to be disposed of within a specified period.— Notwithstanding anything contained hereinbefore, a suit for dissolution of marriage shall finally be disposed of within a period of four months from its institution:
         Provided that where an appeal lies against the dissolution of marriage, such appeal shall be disposed of within four months.]

Hence the family courts are liable to decide Khula matters within the period of 4 months as mentioned in section 12-A of the Family Courts Act, 1964.
