The Karnataka High Court has held that it is perfectly lawful for the courts to record the compromise on the basis of the compromise petitions duly signed by the parties and tendered by their respective Advocates before the court, even without procuring the personal presence of the parties. Further, it was also held that conduct of the proceedings of the petitions filed under Section 13B of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 and Section 28 of the Special Marriage Act, 1954, for divorce by mutual consent can be conducted via videoconference. The high court further laid down a procedure which can be followed for acceptance of sureties in compliance with the condition in the orders of the criminal courts.
