Asked in Family Law from Hyderabad, Telangana
Your aunt simply will have to worry about nothing.
The case filed by your uncle has no merit at all.
Ask her aunt to file case under Domestic Violence Act wherein she can claim maintenance for the children and for herself and once the order is passed your uncle can not avoid it.
To stop his tortures she can file case u/s 498A IPC as well.

Yes, you can produce the proofs of payments made towards the education of the children.
The domestic violence case can be filed at the place where your aunt is currently staying.
Hnce file DV case as apa wherein she can claim interim maintenance as well. if the court so wishes, it can grant maintenance even before her husband get the notice of the case.
Meet a good lawyer.
Don't be panic. Handle the matter very carefully.
Send a replay notice with the help of a lawyer. Your aunty can claim maintenances for herself and her daughters. For that purpose file a case for maintenance and protection under DV Act before the Judicial First class magistrate court in Hyderabad .(Check whether the jurisdiction of the JFCM court lie with in your police station limit).
Divorce is not the first thing, when we take decisions in a family issue matter
Hi, you have to file a divorce on the ground of cruelty and also on the ground that without getting divorce to the first wife he has married second wife and she came to know the recently and it also amount bigamy.
2. You can also file petition for before the court for domestic violence also.

2. Has your uncle took divorce from his first wife or the said marriage is still existing? Where is his first wife if she has not yet been divorced?
3. How could your Aunt use his salary when he was absent for 3-4 years?
4. However, if your uncle had married suprressing the fact that he is already married, the your Aunt can file a police complaint for cheating, bigamy, 498A etc.,
5. She can file a DV case claiming maintenance.
1. Evidence is required to be produced for leveing any allegetion,
2. Not taking care of wife and daughter and not visiting them for 3-4 years amounts to cruelty,
3. She can file the complaints and cases as suggested in my earlier post.
1. The statement of your aunt will suffice in the court.
2. Your aunt had the right to use his salary to support herself and her children.
3. If your aunt wants divorce then she should file for divorce on the basis of cruelty.
4. She can also sue him for alimony by filing a separate case to this effect.
Your aunt should engage a lawyer and file the reply to the legal notice sent by his lawyer. She can thereafter file for divorce and alimony and also defend the cases, if any, filed by her husband.
