One lady filed for a Maintenance Case for herself and her minor child against her husband in the Criminal Court in Hyderabad. After 4 years of hearings, the Court has given verdict in favour of the lady. As per Court Order, the accused husband was directed to pay certain lumpsum amount besides monthly payment as maintenance to the lady. However, the accused failed to oblige court orders, consequently he was arrested. The Hon’ble judge has awarded him one month imprisonment.
Now my query is, will the accused only spend one month in jail and thereafter will be out of jail? If so, what the reliefs the lady will get for she has fought for four years in the court for maintenance of herself and her child?. Kindly clarify.
