Advocate, Greater Noida
Yes she can file a petition again in view of the change in circumstances. The court might just order the husband to support her financially given her medically sensitive state.
under the circumstances explained by you, it is not possible to claim any more than what she has already taken as part of full and final settlement. however, your earlier divorce order needs to be scrutinized.
