What next?


Hello experts,

Today I got a call from womens cell, stating that why am I not attending the meetings for mediation, to that I very politely responded that we are not getting notices for the same, last notice we got was some 3 months ago to which we reponsded in writing with all the medical proofs attached with the reply, after that my wife had filed for a DV case, and now the womens cell officer told me that we will file an FIR.

My background on why we cannot attend any mediation 2000 kms away from our place.

I and my father are physically disabled person suffering from a rare brain disorder, I have all the medical proofs to prove me and my fathers disabablity, I told the officer regarding this issue, he told its time for an FIR under Sec 498a and 407,

My wife had already filed a DV case to which we will be filing our reply in the next date.

Experts please advise what next can happen in this case?

Thanks in advance.

N,

They file FIR.  You better try to get anticipatory bail.  If  you get it, it is O.K.  Otherwise, you have to get regular bail, once police take you into custody.  Otherwise, ask your wife to come to settlement and resolve the issues once for all before FIR is lodged.

Arrest is very unlikely in 498a case filed 2000 Kms away. A lot of members in this forum have taken up a cause of instilling fear in men of false 498a cases. Please ignore these people, they are either trying to increase business for lawyer community or simply staunch believers that wife terrorism is good for society. Consult a lawyer who has full details of your case. If cause of action is in your city 498a case will not be maintainable 2000kms away. Police usually do not travel 2000kms away to make arrest for a 498a case. They will need very strong grounds to do such arrest. Sit tight, let them file FIR, prepare chargesheet and present in court with proper jurisdiction - only think about next steps at that time. If police send you a notice, send medical certificates of disability and ask them to come to your city for investigation. Talk to your lawyer about bail. There is a right time to apply for bail, if you go prematurely you will be denied. These days many men are able to avoid bail all together in 498a case in larger cities because police are unable to make grounds for arrest as long as husband is cooperating. In smaller cities and rural areas situation is different from big cities. Your lawyer will be able to advise.

They say Taj Mahal is one of the 7 wonders of the world.  I think it is correct, the pyramids are no wonder when compared to the Taj Mahal.  Go see it once before it crumbles.  Ah regarding your problem my other colleagues have advised you suitably.

Neil Please do not worry unnecessarily, and do not try to harm yourself. Remember you are being advised by the best. You must take steps as they arise. You will definitely get bail. But remember you are cooperating with the whole situation. That's the reason why you are likely to get bail (that's only if this situation arises). Some women will try to falsify and try to frighten men unneccarily (there are exceptions). Try to cooperate and you problem will get resolved. I hope this eases you.

Thanks for the reply.

Any idea what will the Aniticipatory bail cost for 3 members of the family named in the complain?

I am worried coz I don't have any finances to fight this false case, if she wants divorce she can come and ask me, I will give her, but falsifying this matter thats what I am feeling uneasy about.

Thanks in advance,

N.

1) Apply for AB based on the facts narrated above.

 

2) Send a reply to the Police Notice through a local advocate expressing ur disability and u r ready to cooperate.  It is for them whether they will reach ur place and investigage.
