Please excuse me and explain me as I am a layman in legal proceedings.
I filed a RCR suit against my wife and she replied with an application for maintenance u/s 24 HMA.
Since it was her claim to get maintenance, her lawyer was allowed to speak first during the arguments, then my lawyer argued. Interim maintenance granted and I paid the interim arrears.
However, in the RCR main suit,
who (me or my wife) is given the chance to lead the evidence first?
RCR u/s 9 HMA is filed by me.
