Dear Hon'ble Advocates,
I need you help in advising me how to get divorce from my wife.
We got married 7 years ago and have two kids. We both are working, I'm a pvt salaried person with monthly salary of around Rs.1 lakh whereas she is govt. employee earning around Rs.30K monthly. I'm the only son and we living with my old parents. The house where we reside is jointly owned by me & my father and bought well before my marriage. All the home loan installments were paid by me only. Now I want divorce from my wife since I'm fed up with her rude, non-cooperative, abusive behaviour which is also affecting our children. we are still living together. In this regard, please help me in understanding following points
1. If I initiate divorce procedure, can she harrase me by lodging dowry related complaint. If yes, will it be better if I first take her to local police station & record our statements first that no such issues are there.
2. Will she have any right in my house jointly owned by my father who are also living there.
3. Since she is also earning, even then can she claim for maitenance expenses.
4. I cannot live without my kids and we (me & my parents) can better take care of them, since wife is working and cannot devote time and her parents are also not financially sound. How will law treat it.
Please help me in living a dignified life.
