Wife and husband were separated for more than 6 months as they don't like each other due to compatibility issues.
Due to involvement of elders and village local leaders, they were forcefully sent for cohabitation to place where the guy works. Village people wanted the couple to live together assuming they were just having compatibility issues and they would be fixed automatically over the time.
However, the couple did not like to stay together and took mutual divorce secretly without letting third person know this. Also, the husband has settled the permanent alimony to her.
2 months later, the girl went to her parent's home and had to reveal that she took divorce. Under their influence, now the girl and her parents threatened the guy that they would file cases on him stating he forced and threatened her to give divorce.
In actual, both agreed and took the divorce but the girl is coming in reverse way under their parent's influence. So could you please clarify the below my queies so that we can decide what kind of steps need to be taken?
1) What kind of cases can they file on guy at this stage?
2) I think.. she can file DV case and coming to 498A, it will be filed by wives. As they are legally separated now, she will be no more his wife if I am not wrong. So does she still have the chances of filing 498A?
Thanks for your help in advance.
