Can a marriage be nullified on grounds of mental harassment

Page no : 5

rhea   30 July 2020


I am here again seeking advice. I had filed for divorce under HMA section 13 (i) on grounds of mental cruelty as suggested by my lawyer. we had mentioned the marriage expenses, my belongings etc in the petition. Judge has granted divorce on grounds on mental cruelty and reimbursement of litigation charges of very minimal amount and said there is lack of evidence. I have spent 10 times of that amount on lawyer fees and the process.  My lawyer suggested to file an appeal for which he needs more fees but he lacks commitment on outcome of this appeal. I paid to the lawyer, I roamed in courts and the respondent got free of any charges and punishment. I had complained in mahila aayog they referred the case to police but police dint file a complaint.

I consulted with other lawyer he is suggesting to file a new case for maintenance. I am working so I am doubtful. Now that guy has remarried during lockdown and after the judgement. Is there anything I can do leagally to recover the financial loss.
