I got the notice from my wife under protection from Domestic Violence Act 2005 section 12, 14, 19, 20, 22 & 23 and directed to be present in front of Honorable Court in November 2020. Can any lawyersclub member help me to understand the above said section & can I represent my case himself in front Honorable Court?
Notice stated to have been issued by your wife under section 12, 14, 19, 20, 22 & 23 of the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005 can be ignored as she may or may not be aggrieved person..
It is the Court to issue notice to respondent(s) which is to be attended in person or through lawyer..
It would be better to seek service of a local prudent lawyer for better appreciation of facts./ documents, professional guidance and necessary proceeding
