Maintenance after marriage wife seperation
My wife married 10 yrs back in separation from 2013. She left home leaving kids at my home 2013 and filed for maintenance after 2 months citing reasons of dowry, domestic violence, harassment which is otherwise around she was frequently harassing me for money that's beyond my capability and available resources. She has taken all actions to threaten(domestic violence, dowry harassment, suicide, harming kids and my parents), demeanor me and my character to whomever I knew or related. She characterized me and my parents negatively in the society.
The advocate who initially we engaged played by threatening, misguiding, misleading us (that he can rejoin her with us if we give kids back to her)sent our kids to mother. Immediately she filed for maintenance at court in 2013, that lawyer also turned and said not to take the case.
I have witnessed many a traumatic conditions like she deserting me frequently before 2013, the longest separation was 2 & 1/2 years along with kids. After she left my father felt sick upon my grief and condition. I was failing in every job I took up due to my marriage & relationship problems, my parents health, their surgeries, post surgical conditions. Most of the separation incidents were resolved by mediation by relatives or known people.
We have only one house my father built with his retirement benefits, which she wants to evict my parents and register the house in her name.
Currently I have been to witness box for the first time and then crossed by ex-party advocate.
Both of us deposed and stood in witness - Andhra Pradesh.
Whenever she left its either our family or me or known people will have to interfere.
From the begining our lawyer was insisting that I have to give her money or alimony without my fault.
My wife left even I was stopping her for the good of children. Her parents and brother is support all of her acts which I had always notified them of wrong doing, still they persist in creating problem in my marriage life.
She is using the available laws for her benefit or advantage or blackmailing from the start of our marriage day.
How can I resolve this problem ? I had attempted many a times to resolve this amicable except for financial expectations as its beyond my capacity to evict my parents who will become homeless from the existing house.
She is asking for maintenance of Rs.30,000/- and the house.
I am not employed now due to distress and high pressure BP based ailments and had a surgery few months back.
My & my parents health is one of the reasons that I am getting unemployed frequently.
I have not replied to the initial lawyer notice as per our first advocate's advice that he will be doing reconciliation and mediation, so we don't require to reply for the notice. The lawyer notice was given for custody of children which we have done duly after two months of her leaving us.
Yes, I was ignorant of this procedure at that time.
The ex lawyer queried about the reply to notice, is it an offence which we were misguided ?
We have given reply only case went to court through our current advocate after approaching to current advocate.
Ours was a arranged marriage without any dowry or any financial expectations, but she is implicating me of all wrong or false cases. This we have denied.
She is accusing me of sending her out of house by beating, thrashing & necking out of house which is not true.
Yes have denied.
Now that certain procedure based Q's are being posed, which I am unaware of, so my Q's please.
How do I know that I am being led or misled as I an unaware of the process.
Can you please advice on my queries ?
