Similar to the 498A IPC case timeline available here, in this current post, I am sharing timelines and redacted petitions that I filed in the DV Case.
Take little pains to have them drafted for your cases.
Do NOT ask me word versions. Even if you ask, I will NOT give 😉

I did not file the absent petition.
I filed the absent petition and it got allowed. On next date, I was fully prepared to pose my final set of Cross examination questions to PW1 and end this stage. If permitted, getting ready to finish Oral Arguments and file written arguments as well.
Conducted Cross-examination of PW1/OP – Day 5
As expected, posed final set of Cross examination questions to PW1 and finished this stage. That’s when I understood and realized that, there are other PWs.. Hmm. I should have sought for and got List of Witnesses even before beginning the Cross of PW-1. Lesson (known, but forgotten) learnt. Hence, Arguments stage is few more dates away.
Here are the final set of Cross questions that I posed to PW-1 and few that I couldn’t ask.

Awaiting entry of PW-2
Awaiting entry of PW-2 ; Going to pray for close of Further evidence of Petitioner as last 4 hearing the party as well as Advocate was absent. Seems they are no more interested in the lis.
Still Awaiting entry of PW-2
