Ours arrange marriage took place in May 2013 with some false information by the middleman, we never think about a background check on her family. Just after the 2nd day of marriage, she had started to create a daily mess in our life. After observing her nature we have made inquiry about her family in her maternal village and realized that the family does not bear a good character and not of co-operative nature with other people and real relatives as well. My in-laws wanted me to get separated from my parents and live separately. Her behavior towards me was rude and unsupportive. Her parents always support her for creating a mess.Her brother threatens me and has sent the message to my cell also.From the day she entered our house, she continuously threatened me and my parents that she will file a dowry/dv complaints and see them if she has been asked for anything like household tasks. On telling these to her parents, they also responded the same.I have tried all means of settling it but did not work out, I remained silent knowing the truth and was just trying, in vain, to adjust between marriage but things were getting worst day-by-day. We have a daughter also born after 9 months.After 1.5 years of unsuccessful marriage and continuous trails of compromise, it becomes difficult for me to live with her and helplessly I gave up. I had filed a complaint against her and her parents in her maternal village panchayat, with the hope that it will solve the matter. I also told her about the complaint that You have forced me to do all this. (Closed as she never appeared in the hearing beacuase everyone knows about her in her own maternal village).
On day forth of the complaint, in my absense, she has locked herself in the room and started crying. Within minutes her parents came with police saying that my parents have beaten her and tried to kill her for dowry. (These fake allegation has been proved later when I had made an inquiry by deputy Commissioner, against the police personnel who came that day). In fact, she has beaten my mother and put fake allegation on us for dowry and domestic violence in court.(still going on) Police has asked her to leave the home on her own and she left.She has also given same complaint in our panchayat for DV. (Closed without any conclusion). As she has not listned to panchayat and file a complaint in state women commision shimla for DV (closed, as in bwtween she has filed two more cases in session court for DV and maintenance (providing @2500/month for both her and daughter as per court). After she has filed 5 fake cases with only motive to mentally torture us I have filed the case for Judicial Separation/Divorce on the ground of Cruelty,in session court. (going on from 2+ years).Her advocate has left their case after knowing the reality.They have hired another one who has sent me a new summon to provide separate maintenance to daughter (already providing).Please guide me on how to proceed further.

She was working as web-designer earlier but now at home holding the technical qualification. Due to her wrongdoing, I was under depression and left one job and has been fired from other due to no performance.
We tried to settle it down by involving other middlemen. But they are so cheap that nobody wanted to talk to them. Whenever she has filed a case in any court/women cell, she has never disclosed about ongoing cases. During the hearing, I intimated the courts about the same. Due to this reason cases were closed as explained in above question, except maintenance/DV in civil court and RCR case in session court from her side. Both the courts are asking them to provide witnesses. But she is not providing any witness to the court from last six months. Due to which the cases are dragging only with hearing dates on every second month.Police have also admitted that no violence was there. I am sure that they have not explained the full details to the new lawyer that she is already getting maintenance.
I do not know about courts processes and waiting only. Our counsel is good and per him let the courts decide their fate ethically as I have not committed any crime.
