@ Sandy,

The question posted by you is without relevant facts of the case, such as when, who and under what terms and conditions (especially qua maintenance of divorced wife) have been awarded at the time of grant of decree of divorce.

What is the opinion and advise of the lawyer engaged / paid by you in the subject divorce case proceedings, if it is a real story ??

It's exparte ... without any conditions.. she never attended courts during divorce.. after 14 years of divorce i.e, in .2015 she filed for maintenance.. the court awarded 500 alimony ..and now (2021)again she filed after his retirement for increase of maintenance with out knowledge of his retirement in 2018
