I just realised that the question was incomplete. So I left NZ in 2019, my husband then started sending me legal notice to come back to marriage as I left him without reason. In response to that I had to file a divorce case, in India, based on grounds of cruelty. He is denying in the court that he never pleaded guilty and never abused me (because he got discharged without conviction). My question is:
Does he have a right to deny all the legal proceedings that happened in NZ in the Indian court because he was discharged without conviction (hiding that he pleaded guilty)? Is there any help that I can get from NZ court giving me more details of the case (as the case summary I have hides many details and does not mention about him pleading guilty)?
Customer
He still lives and works in NZ

Under New Zealand law it is necessary to plead guilty before you can apply for a discharge without conviction. While the discharge means he has no criminal record, he cannot deny that he pleaded guilty. If your sim is to get divorced you could apply in the New Zealand family court because the only grounds are separation for two years. He cannot force you to return to the marriage
