In continuation of the above, I would like to inform that wife has filed maintenance u/s 24 of HMA, On the same hearing i have also filed a petition u/s 24 of HMA, I have cited in my petition that
1)while wife when previously applied for child custody under guardians act has stated that she is well educated and working as a teacher and capable of bringing up the children with motherly care and gets support from brothers and parents . However she did not get custody when children were examined.
2) I have made a statement of income and expenses (from my salary declared in IT return) of my family with two minor children and aged parents that i am falling short of Rs.40,000 per month and the same is being bridged by way of hand loans from near and dear ones.
3) wife has previously written letter to me that for maintaining three persons ( wife and 2 minor children) around Rs. 85,000 is required on a monthly basis she wrote this letter even when the children were not in her possession but to threaten me. citing this letter i have supported my petition that i am spending on both minor children and hence wife have to compensate me with 50% of my expense on minor children.
considering all these points whether court will order for an interim maintenance from wife to husband.
Please advice whether the above points are valid in the eyes of court while review of both of our maintenance petitions u/s 24 of HMA act.
what precautions i need to take to safeguard my case further.
