About my best friend. His wife deserted him in year 2001. She left behind 2 boys of age 21 & 14. She carried her jewellery away. Since then, there is no divorce, legal case, reporting etc of any kind between them. My friend is financially very strong. He has owned flat and office and business.
The question: (1) What kind of maintenance or compensation my friend will have to pay if she files a case for divorce & maintenence & her share in husband's property? (2) How can my friend safeguard himself so as to pay least compensation etc..
