In case the wife is working and drawing a handsome salary, the Court will certainly take that into consideration along with the husband's income and then depending on the facts and circumstances of the case decide whether alimony/maintenance is to be awarded to the wife and if yes, then the amount she shall receive from the husband.

Alimony depends upon various factors such as:-

1. Social status of wife.

2. Social status of husband.

3.Number of dependent upon petitioner.

4.Number of dependent upon respondent.

This is my response to you:

1. The courts will award alimony to the wife despite the fact that she is earning;

2. Though the husband can lower the alimony;

3. The husband can also state that he has loans and debts therefore the alimony may be reduced;

4. But if the wife has daily expenses then she can ask maximum maintenance.

1. Mere income of wife is not enough to avoid alimony if there is great disparity of income between the souses.

2. The entitlement of wife for maintenance is at par the income and status of her husband.

3. So if the husband earns around one lakkh or more then he will be liable for maintenance for the wife.

Yes alimony will be granted by the court even if she is working. the maintenance and alimony is decided by the court on the basis of financial and social background in the case of separation and divorce you need to be ready for the payment as decided by the court but you have the option to contest the demand of alimony

1. Alimony will not be granted to the wife who is earning Rs.16 K per month if 1/3rd of her husband's monthly net earning is less than or equal to the said gross monthly earning of the wife.

2. Wife is entitled to the maintenance from her husband to maintain herself as per the lifestyle of her husband and ordinarily, 1/3rd of net monthly earning of the husband is awarded to the wife towards maintenance.

3. If the wife is already earning to maintain herself as per the life style of her husband the she will not be entitled to any maintenance from her husband.

It depends on how the husband proves her income or salary before the court, if he fails to convince the court then he may have to obey the court orders.
