I have recevied the summons and the court has asked me or a lawyer representing me to be present.
If i have to show my salary slips, can i show lesser salaries? is there anyway the court can find out about my salary? my employer is ready to help me to give lesser salary, salary slips.
You do not have to produce your salary slips or salary details before the court.
It becomes her duty to prove your salary and income from other sources to justify her claim.
Dont provide the salary details even if the court orders you to produce the same, you may state that there is no such system in your company to provide salary details, and you can deplete your salary to maximum extent and can give an incorrect figure too before court, nobody will verify from court the authenticity, if at all she says that your salary is different to what you say, she has to prove the same by authentic evidence.
You can discuss with your lawyer on further issues and decide the action to be taken properly.
