I have seen many men seeking help here on various issues.
No denial to the fact that wife do have many weapons to fight for the divorce cases while men do not have much to do except for the bargaining on the point of lingering.
However, men do have little bit of weapons to fight for.
I suggest that before wife files for maintenance, husband should file the maintenance under section 24 in the Hindu Marriage Act. The act clearly mentioned “Wife or Husband.” No worries if you do not get maintenance but this way you can start showing your confidence.
Other thing is to file the DV case by the mother of the husband against the wife. That means that mother in law will file the DV case against Daughter in Law.
Like we have seen that many false cases are filed by wife against husband, Husband too can file these all cases against wife in order to show the confidence and to make the wife weak on her knees.
So if you are ready for war, keep filing these things at certain intervals of a week or 15 days. Let her receive one or the other things rapidly, she will become weak automatically.
P.S. : I am not a lawyer but heard many problems of different people and derived this thing amongst it. It is advisable to hire a learned advocate and to take his advice on this before proceeding further.
