My wife has been involved in an extra-marital affair with one of her ex-colleague since last 5 years. She has left her matrimonial house along with my son (at present 3.5 years old) almost 2 years back. Since then my wife has been living-in a rented apartment (rented agreement signed in the name of my wife) with her paramour along with my son and her mother.
I filed a suit for interim custody and permanent custody both more than 1.5 years back. Initially my wife took 5 months to submit her objection to my custody claim (her lawyer on successive 3 occasions asked for extension of date for submission of objection and my lawyer hardly objected resulting in learned judge granting a new date). Upon submission of objection from my wife, learned judge issued an order on temporary visitation which was followed by submission of different kinds of evidences by my lawyer on next few dates. Then the learned judge got transferred to another court. Since then no judge has been appointed in the court in question resulting in no further headway.
Can I request experts to suggest me regarding my queries?
- How can I resume and expedite the legal procedure?
- Is there any plausibility of permanent custody in my favour? If it exists, what should I do to ensure the same?
- At times it appears my lawyer is not sincere enough regarding my case as he did not fulminate while my wife’s lawyer was asking for extension of date for submission of objection plus my lawyer did not initiate any action to resume or accelerate the legal proceeding since transfer of learned judge. Is my concern a valid one? If so, how can I be sure about his intent?
