Signing Indian Divorce Papers from Switzerland

Hi All,
I and my spouse (both Indians, married in India).
I reside in Switzerland currently and my spouse in India.

My legal counsel has recommended to file separation papers in India and needs my signature.

Is there a way to sign those papers from Switzerland without having to travel to India? Are there any provisions from the consulate / embassy?

Thanks for any inputs.

Re: Signing Indian Divorce Papers from Switzerland

Welcome to EF n..z...r.

rather unfortunate first post.

You can sign all legal papers needed in any Indian court - but - you have to get them 'Apostilled'.

The process is as follows:

1. Ask you lawyer to send you a copy of the papers. this can be a soft copy which you can print here on any normal A4 paper (It does not have to be the green legal paper used by courts in India)

2. Go to a Public Notary (Notaire) - he will ask you sign IN HIS PRESCENCE, check your identity paper - and certify that you are the person whose signature appears on the document. (Cost 20-50CHF)

3. Now you have to go to the 'chancellery' - this is an officer - part of the cantonal administration - who will put an official seal on the document. This is the 'Apostille'. (Cost 30 chf approx)

You can now post this document for submission to the court in India.

Hope you are able to resolve your separation smoothly.
Best eishes.
