I filled for a DV case last year ,after being in a marriage of 8 years and being blessed with a lovely daughter who is 7 years of age right now. Things got from bad to ugly and so had to take this step.
my this case has been going on since more than a year and it just seems to be going no where. all i want is that my husband starts paying for the child"s maintenance. He doesnt give a penny for anything ..he left us 3 years back and started putting pressure for divorce and then when i retaliated he left by saying that he has no job and cannot do anything for the house or child.
i have been struggling to meet with the financesof house emi and school fee and various other bills .. my mother and brother have been partly supporting me in running my house, since i dont earn much ..and have a child with medical condition which kind of binds me in not been able to pick a 9 to 5 job which would pay me more.
My each and every piece of jewellery is with my in laws and they have outrightly denied in giving it back.
My husband has not even filed for visitation rights or even tried in meeting our daughter since last 3 years inspite of knowing that she has a medical condition.,and am sure he never would want to meet her.
Now in the last court date his lawyer said that he doesnt earn much so he cannot give anything. whereas he is working as a freelance consulatant where he charges $100 USD and has a small bussiness. All I wanted was that he gives my jewellery back and gives some amount for my daughter.
But i see everything in vain... dates keep getting postponed either coz judge is unwell or his lawyer is unwell or my lawyer is unwell and finally medical certificate from my husband.
Just one and only one thing i need clarity ...would i be able to get anything for my child?
If not then i might as well call it quits and focus and put all my energies on my daughter and her betterment. Coz at this rate its taking a massive toll.
