My In laws filed a complaint with 498a and seeking divorce 6 months back. SI called me during that time saying the case is registered and informed me to settle the dispute outside the court. We tried to talk to them and agreed for divorce with mutual consent but they are demanding huge amount of money now. My wife was pregnant while leaving and abortion was done without my notice.
Can you please suggest me to proceed further. We did not receive any intimation to attend for the enquiry/investigation from the police after the initial incident. Will there be any arrest now based on 498a and any affect for my job? Do we have to agree for the amount they asked ? If i file a divorce petition will there any relief from 498a completely?
