My marriage is just 9 months old. My wife lived with me in our marital home intermittently for 4.5 months and thereafter hasnt come back from her parents' home till date. Now she is making all kinds of rude threats of misusing the law to put me and my old parents in trouble. I am scared about my and my parents' safety.
I know I cannot initiate any legal action till I complete one year of marriage, but can I at least have the right to refuse her entry into my home? If I tell her she is not welcome into my home, can she force me to let her in? What if she calls the police? The tenancy agreement is only in my name. What are my legal rights here? I am deeply concerned and stressed. Kindly help.
Safety first !
Send a notice from your lawyer asking her to return back to you say within 15 days or so, before that, take a seperate accomodation elsewhere, rented or leased which has minimal furnishings, bed, cot, stove, gas connection fan etc bathroom, toilet, water facility.
Now ask her to come to the new place that youve aquired.
As she is all threats and no love, its better that you make that seperate accomodation, otherwise she might end up at your parents place, put false case on you and your parents, why trouble old age parents, go seperate.
Let me know of what happens next.
PS: Remember you cannot say dont come back to your wife, that would be your first offence which might land you up in jail.
