Does any case has validity period ? I mean a victim can file FIR against accused after years.
For ex.. The incident happened in 2000 . on that situation didn't demand to file FIR against accused or not in a situation to file a complaint but that incident still running in his mind... can he file FIR now ?
The incident could be Dowry case/ Land dispute/ Fradulent cases/ Physical humiliation....
Asked in Family Law from Bangalore, Karnataka
what was complainant doing for 14 years? if FIR is lodged now it would appear to be an after thought . if he files FIR move Hc for quashing
One of my friends sister back home due to dispute with her husband 3 years back for money and physical voilence.. No case filed on that time... But she wants to file a case against him for dowry, harrassment and claim maintenance . can she do now?
Asked 3 years ago
If he files FIR after 14 years it would not stand on legs for long in court. Move to HC for quashing thereof.
She may file the case for dowry harassment even now but she will have to offer explanation for filing it belatedly.
she has remained separate from her husband for 3 years . if there was dowry harassment she should have filed case immediately . whether any incidents of dowry harassment have occurred after she left her matrimonial home . calls made from husband demanding money ?
she can file for maintenance now . husband is bound to maintain his wife
file your case and state its facts ,forget about the time in which it can be filed ,let the other party raise objection to it
