Until and unless the application seeking interim maintenance is decided, you cannot be called upon to file the written statement.

Dear Kushboo,

You seems to be confused or scared that wether interrim maintenance to be decide first or divorce.

Its obvious that interim maintenance is to be dicide first because word interim itself means meanwhile, temporary. So it is to be decide first whereas divorce is permanent 

interim relif last only till the disposal of the case.

So, no need to file ws before deciding interim maintenance u/s 24 of HMA

Yes, if f relief claimed by the wife is not disposed off and her application is not decided and till the amount ordered by the court to be paid to the respondent-wife is not paid, she is not expected to file written statements.

Instead of delaying litigation and turning fruitful years into waste of time, Its better to clear the issues amicably and save precious time of life.
