Few more things that I failed to quote in my earlier post.
1. The girl's mother in our meeting informed that girl has already left the job. Though she quoted it recently but we sense it may be a month back. She said that her daughter has two offers , one in hybd and another in chennai. But, I wonder, if the offers are out of state, how can she fight a case. Doesn't she need to appear in court with us if we proceed to fight the case? or may be they are just faking it.
2. In CAW, girl was abusing a lot to my bro and he was just quiet. But two things that girl was saying clearly
a. She has no issues against any family members, but she will make sure to punish my brother. Now, whether she is playing tricks we don't know as we don't have a copy of her complaint. FIR has not yet been registered it seems. Is there any way we can get a copy of complaint filed in CAW. The girl has changed her statements in CAW during multiple meets. Nobody in CAW said a word about it. Are there chances that FIR registered may be fool proof as my bro said if they see the original complain, there were lot of places she said things wrong (against her).
b. She clearly said in last visit that I dont' want any alimony from my brother as he is not earning. IO was trying to persuade her to go for alimony but she was declining. Again, we dont' know if that is a trick , since now she has left her job and we have no idea if she will be working, has any offer or just making fool of us.
2. The legal advisor that we consulted clearly said that in fighting the case for 3-4 yrs, you may have to pay around 8-10L to lawyers of yours and (may be to girls lawyer if she is not working). If maintenance is claimed, she may have chance to get some minimum maintenance as well and there could be other miscellaneous charges. We have no idea how much does a good criminal lawyer charge for such cases.
If any of you have already passed through this phase recently or even in recent past, would you please help us in estimating some realistic figure for fighting a case as against 10L settlement. If you are no comfortable to share publically, I still request if you can send a PM or email us directly. It would be great help.
We are respectable family, and dont' want to lose respect. Someone rightly said, by paying 10L it may not bring that respect that we understand and of course 10L is not an amount we can arrange even within a year.
Regarding my brothers job, he was working in private firm at good position earning I guess 80k pm. The girl was earning 40K that he told me but may have got uprise (no idea).
