This is Jyothi here .I am from Bangalore,Karnataka. I wanted to know certain things about divorce and the final settlement. I have an elder sister Divya who is married to guy srikanth around 13 years back and they have two kids. He is simply a cab owner and distribute luggage to hotels/clubs in and around Bangalore. Both the kids are small in age. After marriage the relation was very good for 2-3 years. Later he started drinking and beating my sister and her daughters badly.My sister has tolerated this for the last 10 years but now he became more cruel and beating vulgarly and damaging the organs like eyes ears etc of my sister. Now he is not even listening his parents also anyone and telling that he doesn't want family anymore i.e he doesn't want wife and kids and want to live alone.
Under various circumstances we have given huge amounts of money to buy lands,gold,car etc to him and his family.Now nobody is coming under the rescue of my sister and her kids. If we go for divorce and ask for compensation /final settlement for my sister and kids to rest of their life, Is that OK ?
what all we can we can claim to make my sister life happier after the divorce?
Kindly let us know all the legal possibilities and if possible help us by giving us some precious court orders.

Why did your sister tolerate for 10 long years in these circumstances ? She should have asked for relief (s) under the provisions of Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005. However, she can move now also, there is no limit. It would be better to stop poking your nose in the family affairs of your sister, she is mature enough.

First understand how your sister is going to manage her and children expenses if she is decided for divorce. Sometimes Maintenance amount is not enough. Since you have mentioned about her happiness, then look for avenues/options for her financial and psychological independence based on her education & her self-reliance. In case, she wants divorce, then you can ask for Streedhan given in marriage as well as money given for her afterwards, if that is purchased in her name with written receipts for.e.g. gold receipts. If land or car is registered in her name, then it becomes her personal property which she can remove from hands of husband or in-laws. In Court of Law evidence is more important, hence first collect the same before taking final decision.
