My wife is living with her parents for more than 15 months now. I have already filed reply to her divorce petition and provided proof to the court. My lawyer says that after one year my wife cannot file DV case or 498A case as it will be considered as afterthought after reading my reply. I have heard that DV case should be filed within one year from separation but I have no idea about 498A. I have enough proof to defend myself but just wanted to be prepared in advance.
