I have filed a case of divorce on the grounds of cruelty and mental illness. The mediation for the reconcilliation has been failed and now the girl has filed a petition for interim maintaince u/s 24. They are demanding a monthly amount of Rs 1,45,000 stating that I earn 4300£ per month. However, I am not earning that said amount and it is much lower. Also, I am currently on deputation in UK and my base location is India. My question is ... will the maintainence be granted and if yes then will it be decided based on my Indian salary or the UK salary. Also, my visa will expire in 2-3 month time and I may be asked to go back to India. What is the role of consumer price index or cost of living index between two cities while determining maintainence amount?
Other details - Girl is an MBA but not working. The girl has deserted me from last 18 months. We dont have any child as the marriage was not cohabited. Girl is Schizophrenic and is under medication and has attempted suicide at her place.
Please advice. Thanks!
