You should visit your in-laws’ house to take back your wife. If she is refusing to come back and showing her willingness to stay at her parental home. Then you should file a civil suit for the restitution of conjugal rights.
You can file a suit under Section 9 of the Hindu Marriage Act for the restitution of conjugal rights. It is necessary for you to prove that your wife has disassociated you and is not willing to resume your union.
In the matrimonial discord not necessary to send a legal notice. You should exercise your legal rights provided under the statutory law. Section 9 of the Hindu Marriage Act provides a remedy to the aggrieved spouse whose partner is living apart without any sufficient reason.
