498a case & mutual consent divorce
I was married in 2010 in an force situation with my wife. Till then we lived together but separate rooms. Later in 2012 my wife had filed 498A (A1-myself, A2-my mom). In 2013, it was called for Court and till today it was postponing. Now my wife had come to an understanding seeking 4laks for withdrawl of 498A and for Mutual Divorce. Now the problem is paying the money. My lawyer is insisting to deposit cash and take a FDR on name of bothside lawyers. But im in suspicion that if in future, my wife turns against and the money is blocked in lawyers account.
My father-in-law & wife are very cruel persons and may change their moods time to time and are very very harrassing persons.
Q1. So is there any such way to keep the cash in a gentle mans hand who is agreaable by the both parties and upon the divorce papers in his hand, he will release the cash on other hand. or Is it essential to give the cash/FDR to lawyers.. Pls suggest.
Q2. Any important points to add in MOU and ncessary steps to aviod revoking of the case in future or harrasing for more money or to not dis-obeying the Mutual consent Divorce.
Q3. Are there any special steps to be followed to get Mutual Consent divorce as early as possible. i.e 3months.
Your kind information will be very helpful to save my life as my father-in-law may apply some politician force on my Lawer and may convince him to overtake me.
Pls guide me Sir. Thank you
