'Wealthy' woman not entitled to claim maintenance in divorce cases: Bombay HC

'Wealthy' woman not entitled to claim maintenance in divorce cases: Bombay HC

Mumbai: The Bombay High Court on Tuesday ruled that a woman is not entitled to claim maintenance in divorce cases if she is wealthy herself.

 

The court rejected an application filed by a resident of Nariman Point, seeking enhancement of the alimony granted to her by a family court.

 

A Division Bench of the High Court said if a woman is able to maintain her lifestyle despite the estrangement, she needn't be awarded any alimony.

Can anyone share the judgement copy?

Simply wealthy won't help. One has to have strong grounds. Further Huge maintenance was awarded already. Woman wanted to draw more it seems in name of Law.

As men and women are made equal, why doesn't maintenance act become null and void ipso facto?
