Maintenance is decided by comparing the Husband's income and the wife's income and their liabilities. If the man is earning more than the woman, the woman qualifies for the maintenance. If the woman is earning, she will still be given maintenance.
I think most of the my advocate friends are with pre notion of complusary maintainece whether wife is earning or educated, Question can wife claim maintainence if she well educated ( Msc) or employed if yes then all wife will stop working start claiming maintainence from husband these is nothing but creating a way for easy money
My Observation under DVC is
1. If wife is well educated then we should press ont he fact that she can maintain herself for rest of life
2. Very fact that she claimed that she is earning 10k is good proof that she can get more salary in future to maintain her self .
3. Status of any individual can change any time in couse of time but that does not mean maintain has to be granted based on the status
