Am working abroad. Got married exactly before 1 year. Stayed around 2 weeks in India, then traveled back to foreign-country, prepared VISA for my wife and took her to foreign-country. Before travelling she got pregnant and it was aborted due to medical complications as suggested by doctor. She was fine for few days but grew violent and very abusive towards me any my family. My measures to convince her and her father failed. Her father and herself demanded that she needs to travel to India immediately. So, I sent her back to India in my expense. Totally, She stayed in with me for 5 months outside India. My parents tried to discuss the matter but, they did not co-operate and she came back to foreign-country un-informed when I was planning to travel to India. When she understood that I am travelling to India, she filed a DV complaint in foreign-country. But anyhow, the complaint was not taken up by Police and on my request to discuss the matter with parents, they allowed us to travel back to India. As soon as we both reached India, she filed a complaint to Indian Police. Now, its converted into DV and 498A FIR against myself, parents and my sister. My parent applied for AB, but high-court provided interim bail and diverted it to Mediation center. My parent and my wife attended the mediation. Wife requested her furniture and jewels(Which is still with her and is not in my home). Mediator advised to return the items and ordered for next mediation after 1 month. Meanwhile, they had applied for Maintenance case(under 125 CrPC) in Magistrate court. I got a notice of their complaint along with summon. They quoted that I get very huge salary in foreign-country and demanding a very huge monthly maintenance for her. I am in a short term deputation in foreign-country and I get money only on T&M basis and will not get the money if I travel back to India. Anyhow, I will get only Indian salary regularly about 50000 INR / month. Please help me with way forwards assuming that, I CAN go through any process( may be get remanded, jailed or face trial or anything). But I don't want my parent to get into problems and I don't want my happily living sister into this mess. I am ready to resign from my job here in foreign-country and fight back to get my mental peace. Currently I have decided to fight back the maintenance case instead of going with settlement-out-of-the-court. 1. Whether I should travel back to India ? Legally to face these cases, should I present myself in court ? 2. I don't have an AB for me. When is the correct time for me to file AB? 3. I am ready to return the items which is there in my home. But What can I do for the items which is not here, but they are demanding that it is in my home.? 4. What precautions I should take for contesting the Maintenance case alone. Since I dont have AB for 498A and it is still pending with Mediation center ?
