Divorce - possible steps involved and time in following case
My brother got married in 2012,but not happy with his wife's behavior. After 8 months of marriage she left to her native place never returned for long time.Because of prestige issue we didn't take any action( like filing divorce , also because of lack of knowledge regarding consequences of law ),kept our hopes on talks among families and elder persons.Eventually with many rounds of talks she returned ,only to go back again after 6-7 months of stay. She has made mockery out of our silence.
Some in between events :
When she left for the first time, after some days we came to know a good news saying she is pregnant. But that cruel woman after some days punched herself to stomach and miscarriage happened.( we lost a baby.. That was very hard on us)
When she returned her behavior was totally different. Not mingling with anyone.staying in different moods always.Not respecting elders in home.
She always wanted a separate place to stay but my brother kept on denying.His point was my parents would be left alone( moreover they both are patients -Dad has already survived 2 heart attacks and mother a Diabetic patient and also once attacked with Brain stroke)
In this scenario if my brother wants to file the divorce what are the consequences, like how many days it will take to get the verdict, should he still pay the maintenance, and if anything more? ?
Some Info: she is working ; we haven't taken single penny as divorce
Please help me with the answer. My family is a very innocent one,but suffering a lot because of this woman.
