u consulted advocate to get "best way to get out of a marriage'," and if he suggests filing a 498a, even when there was no dowry demanded and no harassment done, To act upon the advise depends uopn u.
u an chg or consult as many advocate as u wish.
u must do what u find correct.
It is not the Advocate, but U who lodge complaint, and declare on oath that what u stated is true and correct to the best of ur know- belief. U accept all responsibility of ur statements, and Police act upon ur statement / complaint.
All communication between a Client and His Advocate is confidential, and cannot be disclosed. it is a Privileged Communication.
I fully agre that Advocate must not encourage filing false 498 cases. Filing such cases usually end in broken marriages, which shd be avoided . it harm society.
Adv shd not dance at the tune of clients, nor client shd act blindly at the instigation of adv. To create crime cases to earn money- Fees, at the cost of harassment of innocent litigants is not professional ethics. All wives shd think before filing False 498a. Tomorrow ur brother or son or ur parents , and u, may face the same thing!!
