It is very difficult to setting aside the order with out a valid reason. If once high court dismiss the petition then you have to approach the high court. Try for applying the petition under the ground of change of circumstances and  mental conditions.

If a decree has been drawn on the compromise arrived between the parties, it cannot be set aside nor an appeal can be preferred against it unless the compromise agreement conditions have been grossly violated rendering the the compromise agreement as infructuous. 




Mother of a girl child wants to come out from a compromise reached and orders passed by family court giving her child to her husband  on permanent  custody.  The couples not legally seperated but not living together
Under the situation the compromise arrived can be set aside.



Family court dismissed her petition for modification of the compromise order stating that petitioner's plea for modification  within 40days of a compromise reached was abuse on the process of court of law Hence wherther any chance to set aside that compromise order dated 19 -2 -2015 at this stage by submission of a delay condone petition
It is an appeallable order, hence an appeal can be preferred before high court.



f so in which court  we can approach. The H C also dismissed the appeal on the order on modification petition
High court.

Ordinarily in child custody cases the order passed on compromise is not modified by the court unless some compelling reasons in favour of the modification sought are shown by the party. Since the court has refused to modify the order now the only legal remedy is to carry the matter in appeal to the higher court.
