• Wife threatening to file case

Hi sir I got marred couple of yrs back and post my marriage my sister in law ,her boyfriend and later my mother in law came to town. They were very interfering and demanding monetarily. My life had become he'll . My wife continuously used to threaten me as she has studied law but working in outsourcing firm. She left house few months back after being provoked by her mother and sisters. She earlier told for divorce bu mutual consent but now asking maintenance. She then threatened me and her lawyer called me and threatened to agree for demands else he will do nasty things and file domestic violence case . I consulted a lawyer who suggested me for filing case of mental cruelty . I don't know what to do ...people tell all divorce case go in favor of girls and I have no way to prove of no domestic violence ... Also am I in threat of being put behind bars .. Please advise... My life has become hell . I cannot pay her maintenance as I don't earn that much and my parents are retired govt personnel .

Your lawyer rightly advised you to separate on account of mental cruelty.  It is rubbish to say that divorce cases go in favour of women. Those who speak such crap know nothing about what happens in the courtroom. Before she files a false case against you it will be prudent if you go ahead and avail your remedies under the law.

That will vindicate your stand. You are not required to prove no domestic violence ensued from your side.
