Wife should not be allowed alimony in the light of her capability to earn. However, a permanent settlemant amount can be arrived at....

@Querist,

 

Whether she earns or not is immaterial in determining the maintenance amount.The question of maintenance amount depends upon your earnings and living standards of both of you and also whether you have sons/daughters,as the case may be.

@ Chetan Joshi

sir for permanent settlement will court consider husband's consent or it will just pass an order.

@Mr. Sumitra Kumar

no issues born out of that wedlock. she was earning before marriage and qualified enough to earn and even after marriage she worked as a free lancer few material evidences are there in this regard and i earn few thousands more than her thats it. my family own a house and a car and they dont own anything.

@Querist,

 

It's not in your discretion to decide if you like to pay one time alimony or monthly maintence. your wife's and the court's,decision/consent is of much importance.I expressed my opinion. Now it's upon the Court to decide your case.

There are many similar judgements where alimony is dismissed if wife earning is adequate to maintain decent life

Serach in this fourm itself there are many postings. however this is completly to court discretion and based on your supporting evidence and arguements

sumitra ji ...

again, I disagree

 

also conduct of the parties also matters while granting alimony.
