My wife has filed a DV Case at Nagpur, Maharashtra, we have never stayed at Nagpur, I had filed a RCR at Belgaum, Karnataka. The RCR at Belgaum,Karnataka got transferred to Nagpur, Maharasthra by the supreme court transfer petition, Now at Nagpur, my wife has filed for access and custody for our 6 years 10 months old son who is presently at Tezpur, Assam. I am serving in the Army. Please guide and advise me
Asked in Family Law from Tezpur, Assam
1) if wife is staying in Nagpur temporarily DV case can be filed in Nagpur
2) you should oppose custody of child be granted to mother as child has stayed with you for these years
3) welfare of child is paramount consideration
4) yiu can agree to grant of visitation rights to the mother
according to the guardians and wards act her petition is not maintainable because it should be filed at Tezpur because child is residing there. you should object on the maintainability of the petition .
same rule is adopted in the hindu guardianship and maintenance act. your objection will sustain and her petition shall be dismissed at the stage of admission.
The case could have been filed only at Tezpur i.e where the child is residing. You may move the Supreme Court to transfer the petition to Tezpur from Nagpur.
The child custody and access or visitation rights case can be filed at the place where the child is residing.
Even if she is getting a favorable judgment in this case, she may not be able to execute the order since the child is staying far off in a different state.
Sh has to file an execution petition before a court at Tezpur only.
However you can file a strong counter objecting to her petition on the basis of lack of jurisdiction.
My wife being instigated by her parents have filed multiple litigation in ( Domestic Violence at Nagpur Court) demanding for Interim Maintenance and in the Armed Forces under Army Act 2/2001 for grant of maintenance. The issue has been completely investigated and examined by the Army Authorities. I require a copy of the same and have filed an RTI but have got no reply till date. I need to present the same in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate Nagpur where the DV case is filed and in the family court where RCR is transferred at Nagpur. I need to quash the petition of Domestic Violence as it has harmed my reputation and has caused me lot of unpleasantness in my place of employment. The same complaints have been filed at multiple places I am answering the Army Auth and the civil auth please guide
I come under concurrent jurisdiction under Army Act; Which Court should I approach ( High Court,Mumbai, Nagpur Bench High Court, Supreme Court)
