My wife deserted me and has been very cruel during last 80% of our married life (last 2 years have been horrible) and now in last few months she filed false and frivilous 498a etc and DVC. Have filed RCR right now but mediation through that has failed. I believe I have sufficient proofs for both desertion and for cruelty. Assuming I get divorced after a tough fight in court on either or both these grounds:
- Do I have to give her alimony/maintenance for desertion?
- Do I have to giver her alimony/maintenance for cruelty?
- What if I am able to prove both desertion and cruelty?
- Since I am higher earning and assuming I prove the desertion and cruelty am I likely to get custody of my sons?
