I filed DV case against my husband in Feb,2013. Till now I ve not got maintenance, as he played tricks in the name of compromise. Mediation also failed. He dragged it on for almost 4 months last yr (from april to August) . Again in the jan 2014 he agreed to take us back and he backed out again. After that he didnt appear for any hearing. When it went for argument he has recalled the case. I would like to know What is PW1. How many more hearings it will take. My advocate has told that she wil be pressing for IM in the next hearing. Can I demand for maintenance from the date of filing the case. It is very much evident from the order sheet that the respondent only didnt appear for any hearing even when we were to sign a joint memo. And now again to delay the maintenance he has raised objection. Tho he has raised objection it is very much that he has played tricks to delay / avoid giving maintenance.
