Dear Sir/ Madam,
I & my family members got acquittal in 498a 307 cases, the ex filed appeal and it is pending since 1 year.Even grounds of appeal has not been argued as the judge is retired and no replacement made.The Ex is trying to come back and I am not willing at any cost.
After getting certified copy i filed divorce on basis of mental cruelty (False case) & guardian petitions at the last place of residence. As usual they filed transfer petitions at District Court which are dismissed and appealed the same in High court. The high court shifted them to a neutral place and directed the court to complete the cases within 6 months.
My Advocate who originally filed the petitions is advising that, filing certified copy of acquittal in criminal case is not enough for the proof of mental cruelty as the appeal against 498a & 307 is pending. Judgments in criminal cases are not binding in civil suits and it is mandatory for me to place all defense witness who are attended in 498a case must also attend in divorce case also.
However, my new advocate at the transferred place is saying that above opinion of earlier advocate is not correct. He is also adding that there is no guarantee for me to get Divorcee even though I am having acquittal judgment.
Please give your valuable suggestions in this regard.
