My wife filed DVC on 10 memebers and 498a on 7 memebers and we are all aquittal in jan 2015.
I filed Divorce case in April 2015 and recently dec 15 th, 2015 my wife filed counter along with section 24 H.M( maintanance).
Judge gave 02-06-2016 date for Reconcillation.
I came to USA in october 2015 and I was not attend the court dates still so far.
My wife stated that I am earning 4 lacs per month and she is seeking 1.50 laksh per month in section 24 H.M.
I asked my lawyer to get atleast one month time for next date.
yesterday(02-01-2016) was the case date and she attended.
Judge gave 4 days time to appearance(06-1-2016) of myself in court.
it is not possible to attend the court on 06-01-2016 as I need to take permission from manager and booking flight tickets.
I dont understand why Judge gave only 4 days time for my appearance.
My lawyer always says that my presence is not required and he would handle". I lost trust on my lawyer.
but now he is saying that my presence is mandatory otherwise judge will dismiss the divorce petition and pass orders on Section 24 H.M.
Please suggest me
1. How can I handle this situation?
2. I am planning to come India on jan 3rd week. if Judge dismiss my divorce petition and pass orders on secion 24.
Can I reappeal the divorce case and sec 24 H.M order in the same court again (once I come to India)?? or I need to go session court or high court??
3. Why judge gave only 4 days for the next date.
