I may not be able to give very technical information on stay order. but fundamentally it would not be possible at all to get stay on 125 Crpc.
Crpc 125, it will cause you to pay a small amount of money as maintenance , but sooner or later cases would be falling in your favor if you pay money.
In my view everyone facing family cases need to understand the fundmental notion of judiciary in this process. No one have time to go into details of husband wife fight. By applying 498a and other brutal things, the notion was to strengthen the women. but the application of them in indian society is actually breaking families.
By asking you to pay money, they are trying to solace her ( whatever be the truth) and wait if she tries to come back genuinly.
you need to be very calm and composed ( which would be very difficult while observing injustice against you). Nothing will happen you, its pressure game , be resilient and calm.
Try to understand the politics of every component in this game. Everyone is trying to give enough space to that woman so that she may come back. 498a or Domestic violence everything is fake and it is known to judiciary.
Socialism and Politics is the essence of the game, although cases are criminal in nature. which is only to intimidate you. but you should not. be ready to pay and think you got to have an accident.
