what were terms and conditions of mutual consent divorce ? was there any provision made for maintenance . please clarify .

in any case  you are entitled to ask for maintenance from your ex husband . you can make application to family court seeking maintenance from your ex husband .

Hi,
 Since you have got a divorce  through mutual consent divorce procedure . You are divorced despite the fact that you had also done christian  marriage . Regarding the maintenance if you do not have  a job, and no source of income, you can approach a family or district court and ask for the same. do not hide any details , consult an advocate tell/him/her about the both marriages and divorce and  of course about  living together after the divorce. Your husband if has the means to pay will have to pay the maintenance.
