• Supreme court judgement no maintenance after 1 year of divorce

Respected sir,
I found in net that there is a judgement of Supreme court that if the divorced wife can maintain for 
1 year  without maintenance then no maintenance will be allowed to her.
Can you post the full judgement? I want to add this in my court.

judgments depend upon facts of each case 

2) even if wife is divorced she is entitled to maintenance from her husband 

3) however if wife is working and able to maintain herself and there is not much disparity in income court would not award her maintenance

4) unable to find judgment cited by you

I regret there is no such decision. No court disentitles wife from getting maintenance right from the date of divorce if she has no other independent source of income.
I think you are wrongly informed.

If you have found the judgment in the internet, kindly provide the link so that this can benefit others who are also suffering like you.
