Dv petition section 20(1)(b)

Dear lawyers,

My wife (divorced her now by executing talaq) filed DV petition with false allegations and claiming maintenance by filing petiton under section section 20(1)(b) and 22 and other sections. Separate affidavit also filed under section 23 for IM, But i noted section 20(1)(b) is for medical expenses. Is it an error on their behalf? Can i raise ths issue to deny maintenance.

Is this petition maintainable?

Your Lawyer will take care of these questions and your concerns as well. Either you trust your lawyer or if he is not doing justice to his job, as you think, then better change him.

Dear sir,

Thanks. My lawyer is not even opening his mouth and also not pointing out any mistakes in the petition.

I am also thinking to change him as well.
