Dear Sir, I (the husband) have filed for the dissolution of marriage under section 13.1.1a of the HMA lived under the same roof till the petition notice was served to her. Within a few days of the notice being served by the court to my wife (the repondent) she disappeared with my child (girl) aged 11 years to her hometown Pune without even informing me.
The schools have opened for the next academic year and despite efforts by me to get the child back so that she can continue to go to school, my wife hasn't done anything - the child is not going to school in Pune either for last 1.5 months. Meanwhile the first hearing on my petition is postponed to end of May as per her lawyer's request.
Can I seek interim custody of the child in the interest of the child so that she can continue her schooling? what are my chances? Can I approach the court for the same before the next hearing date?
