There is a set procedure to law for filing a petition or an application and before which Court or Forum or competent authority. Section 21 of Hindu Marriage Act provides that all proceedings under this Act shall be regulated as far as may be, by Code of Civil Procedure. In case High Court of the concerned State has framed rules pertaining to any matter under the Act, those rules shall come into application for regulating the procedure for disposal of petitions or applications under the Act.A matrimonial petition is a petition which deals with matters relating to matrimony. There is no statutory definition for the term ‘matrimony’. Matrimony means relating to marriage. Therefore, any petition which deals with ancillary or incidental matters related to marriage is called matrimonial petitions.
