Is it really a fact that now that my husband is a Bahraini, Indian law will not apply to him.
Take: The case of Dhannalal Vs. Kalawatibai & Ors., AIR 2002 SC 2572 has bearing in your grievances before us. The paragraph 23 whereof holds that in case of conflict of jurisdiction, the choice ought to remain with the plaintiff to choose the most convenient forum as the plaintiff is the dominus litis i.e.master of, or having dominion over, the suit. Hence he has right to choose Bahrain Courts for remedy if he chooses one. Secondly all cause of action rests in Bahrain soils as per briefs before us is my view. Also the point I have noted from the brief is that the parties are not carrying on business, residing or personally working for gain within the territory of Goa Court. Further the parties have been residents of Bahrain undisputedly since the year their marriage after the solemnisation of marriage at Goa under Goa’s Civil Laws. Others may have their views which are welcome though !
What if he applies for a divorce, can he apply for a divorce in Bahraini court or he has to apply for it in Indian courts considering we married in India?
Take: Since the law in Bahrain is governed by the Shariat alone and since your husband has converted to Islam and recently got Bahraini citizenship he can very well apply for Divorce in local Courts as per Islamic laws.
He keeps threatening me about divorce and uses abusive language in his communication. If i have evidence can i do something to stop him from doing so legally?
Take: Since you are in Bahrain as you say, you may approach local Authorities for local remedies.
Remedy: Contact a Adv. in Goa and file an interim-injunction suit in territories of Goa under local civil Laws praying for defendant husband to be non-suited (i.e. anti-suited injunction is what you are seeking on Goa soils)
As per Local Laws (Bahraini) he is more or less right too so far as sponsorship of his child is concerned plus what is your status I doubt you are self sponsered now that he is still your husband though with changed religion !!!. This has impact on your sponsorship too which is my doubt as no whisper abotu it is mentioned in your brief. You and we all know very well Middle East puts “sponsorship tough conditions and impacts of local laws”. Well after accepting Bahraini citizenship probably he may have retained his PIO status but that is doubtful and needs re-checking which is besides the point if int. comity of Jurisdiction is under challenged otherwise also dual citizenship is allowed since last Parvasi Bhartiya Conference so what is a big deal here!!!.
[Off the above reply when he is asking for MCD then you are saying ask Divorce instead of MCD I could not get what major difference will that make in parties status as if facts are to be tested before one day or other in Court of Law divorce per se is inevitable is it not so think in retrospect so if two parties amicably solve their issues then nothing like it unless this is nobody’s case that one party wants and another does not want here both want but wording wise how they get it both have difference so it seems to me!]
