My brother in law is not accepting my sister
My sister was married in 2015. Now she has three year old daughter. There were small issues with her husband. He thinks she is uneducated and can't get a job anywhere and keeps torturing her on the same point. Though she is graduated and worked before marriage. Last year, she was beaten by him, so we registered an NC and took her to my home. She was at my home for around 8 months. He was not even asked her to come home. Once she returned home with her daughter. That time she got to know that his husband is dating another girl working in his office. When she asked him who is she, he accepted that she is my girlfriend and told her that you were dating your boyfriend for 8 months so now I have a girlfriend. But when we asked him what is going on he refused to accept it. He is treating her like a person who only responsible to cook and serve him. By the way, his parents stay at their village and they don't interfere with his son's activities. They just ignore it, saying that the girl is only an office friend of him. One day my sister got his chat history with that girl having romantic kisses and movie plans. He does not give any money for home expenses to my sister saying he has to pay the EMIs, but gifts headphones, a new mobile phone to that girl.
Now during this Diwali, there was again an argument between husband and wife for the jewelry. My sister told him that I have sold my jewelry and got the money to make the food for him, but in reality, she didn't. That time he bit her on her hand and asked to leave his home shouting at her. Also told her that, now he will surely do second marriage with that girl. Then my sister got angry and hit him with a broom. Then he ran away by locking the door from outside. His father was also there when this happened but he did not say anything.
She called us to take her along with us. Then we took her and went to the Police station and registered the NC about everything happened. Now she is living with us. She is saying I don't want to spend my life with a person who is characterless and claiming me as a characterless.
Now I just wanted to take advice from a lawyer to take the next actions. We are not sure what should we do next, should we send her back to live a slave life, should we keep her to live along with us, in that case, can she get money or claim right in his property for a living? As her daughter is 3 years old, she is worried about her education.
Also after 4 years of marriage, he did not even bother to create a marriage certificate. So we don't have a marriage certificate but we do have a birth certificate of her daughter.
Please guide any help would be appreciated.
