Dear Learned Lawyers,
Please guide me in my Divorce Case.
My wife in 2016 moved Supreme Court for Transfer of Divorce Petition from Noida to Ludhiana. The Supreme Court denied transfer.
Now again, in 2019, she has moved Supreme Court for transfer of the same Divorce Petition. The registry could not reject the 2nd same petition as in her 2016 petition she wrote my name differently along with a different case number, and now in 2019 she writes the correct name and correct case number. In her list of events she has not mentioned the earlier petition.
Basis the aforesaid, she appeared in Supreme Court, in person. The wrong doing was highlighted to the Hon' bench of Judges who asked why she did so .................... she very calmly said "I am sorry", and the argument started.
The Court then asked my lawyer to intervene and mediate for a settlement and come back in a weeks time. The court said all cases will be dismissed if a settlement is drawn upon. My hearing is now on Monday 22nd April 2019. I offered 8 lacs for my 10-month marriage. I am already paying her Rs 15,000/- maintenance a month. I have so far paid her Rs 4.2 lacs towards Maintenance and Rs 2 lac to get bail from court under 498A charged on me. I have a DV case as well on me.
The mediation failed as she has not accepted Rs 8 lacs offered and is also not mentioning what she wants. Rs 8 lacs that i have committed will also be borrowed from family. I am a salaried employee. My lawyer has been continuously asking her what she wants. My lawyer has stated that she has been appointment by the Supreme Court to settle the issue between both parties, and that she can ask her lawyer to connect with her for a faster closure and settlement. She now states that her lawyer will argue the matter in the Supreme Court.
I am in a fix here and do not know what to do. Please advice way forward. What can be the possible outcomes by the Supreme Court? What should we do?
