I am a freelance consultant. Started consulting very late in my life when I was around 44 years old. Though since then consulting has been happening, in between a year there was no assignment. Then again I got a 46 days assignment in an UN agency stretched over several months. But after this is over again I am not sure when I will get another assignment. Meanwhile my husband has filed a divorce petition and says that I am gainfully employed and have sufficient means of living. I have unsure/irregular income and I also suffer from diabetes. My daughter lives with me--she is 15 years old. Since last month he has stopped depositing the money he used to send for us.
The divorce is filed under Hindu marriage act.
Keeping in view my age--I am 48 years now with a 20 year old marriage, my health status and irregular income, how much maintenance can I expect? My husband works in a multi national company. Though he never revealed his salary, my guess is that it is quite high. He holds a high post there.
How much maintenance my daughter can get?
