wife seprated 21.07.2010 and she filed dv case in 16.09.2011 what is the limitation period. can she file after one year.
there is no limitation period for filing DV
yes, she can file.
additional sessions judge held that Savita’s claim was maintainable since she had left the matrimonial home on July 4, 2005, and the Act had come into force on October 26, 2006.
this means a woman can avail DV act even if the incident had occurred before the enactment of DV act.
Ppl are trying to fight DV limitation period as 1yr based on Indejit S Grewal SC judgment, but no success story read till date!
facts of the judgement are different and unique to that particular case.
finding of SC in that judgement is not General
if they have filed case then fight it on merits and prove that there is hardly any domestic relationship during that time period.
yes she can apply divorce but law says that both the couple should be separated atleast for one year before applying for divorce.
she can claim maintenace according to sec125 also
he he he..
Its nots DIVORCE dear..its domestic violence(PWDVA)
