Petition u/s 24 and 13 of Hindu Marriage Act
Sir, I got married on [deleted] and started living with my wife at a place far away from my native place. On [deleted], my wife asked her father to take her home. She left my home on the same day ( [deleted]) and also took with her all her belongings like ornaments, clothes, etc. from my house.
Then she and her family had spread rumours that I tortured her physically, I kept her like a servant. She does not want to come back to my home and asked to give money to her if I want divorce from her.
Now, she has filed petition u/s 13 of Hindu Marriage Act for divorce. She has also applied for Interim Maintenance u/s 24.
She has completed B.Com., M.Com. and she is in the final year of CA ( Chartered Accountant).
Her Article Ship of CA Final Year is also completed.
Sir, can she ask for the Interim Maintenance? Can I say in the court that she is highly educated and capable to do a job so she can not ask for the Interim Maintenance from me.
Kindly give details of cases similar to mine and their judgments, if available.
I will be very thankful to you.
