DV case has no nexus with a case for divorce. The filing of a case for domestic violence by you does not operate as a bar to applying for divorce by hi. Both the cases can be filed and decided simultaneously on their respective merits.

1.Please understand that your husband can file divorce suit after one year or even before that even if you do not file DV case. For filing for divorce case he does not need excuse of DV case.
2. So my advice to you is to file DV case before he goes to matrimonial court for divorce.
3. Filing of 498A case is also an option if the situation so warrants.
4. Fling of 498A case before filing of divorce case yields more productive results.

1. His filing Divorce case is not dependent on your filing DV case against him,

2. You should file the DV case or application u/s498A of IPC before he files the divorce case since otherwise it will be argued by his lawyer that you have file DV and 498A cases to take revenge on him since he has filed the divorce case,

3. For filing police complaint u/s498A of IPC & also DV case make a complete litigation planning.

In the present situation I think it is advisable for you to file two cases: first DV and secondly suit for restitution of conjugal rights
