Best practices to follow in wife's cross examination

Hi Experts,

Wife filed divorce with false allegations(along with other false cases 498A, DVC,MC) on cruelty ground.

What are the best practices to follow in cross examination to get the truth from her mouth?


Thanks in advance,

1. List out false statements from her petition. Lay the questions so that she gives contradictory statements (e.g. witnesses who were absent are included; wrong amounts; beaten but no medical proofs etc.). 

2. List out silly points made by her (not watching movies with me, going to his sister's house etc.). 

3. List out good actions by you (paying maintenance, giving her gifts etc.). Let her admit to those. 

4. List out bad actions on her part (hiding income, hiding children, blocking parents etc.). Grill her about those.

Use her answers to make arguments in your closing that, given these, her accusations are either false and silly; You are a good person who is doing your best to cope up despite her bad actions to save the marriage. Hence, pray to deny her divorce so that she may learn the lesson and compromise for a successful marriage in future.

Good luck.

Careful how you phrase questions, denying her any 'opportunity' to start croc' tears; while it may be a fun thing to make her whine and whimper a bit wink the Judge's heart will melt angry
