My wife is separated since May 2013. Till date she only went to a private mediation center. No any other case is filed yet from both the side. I have one flat on my name which I was bought before marriage and that money was given to me by my mother. If she go for divorce now can she claim home. That’s the only property I have. We have one boy and he is with her. Can she claim that property? How can I save it? Can I transfer it to my mother’s name? It will cost me approx. 7 lac rupees. Please help.
I discussed this with my lawyers sadly they took huge consultations fee but no accurate answer.
Following are the inputs by lawyers :
- No need to do anything wife cannot claim anything which is bought before marriage.
- It is too early. Let’s see what she is up to. Go for mediation.
- Transfer it to your mother name, this ways if she will come back and misbehave to your parents. They can throw her out.
- Transfer it now before she file any case.
These all answers really confuse me to do anything. I don’t know how people who have 10-15 properties manage such situations. I only have one and I am so worried.
