Civil Judge, junior division, in his order for maintainance u/s 125, has ordered me to pay an interim maintainance of Rs.20000 pm to my wife. My last two years ITR (with annual income between 1.70 - 1.80 lacs) were given in the reply but those seemed to be totally ignored and old ITR (2013 & prior) were considered as my wife had submitted them .. these old ITRs had much higher income (salary).
a. She is much more qualified than me.
b. In her affidavit in another case (in HC) she has submitted that she used to work as a lecturar. I do not have any documentary proof of her present earnings/ work.
c. She is already getting an interim maintainance of 6000 pm u/s 24 in DV case (when my earning was much higher) Her applications in DV court, session court & HC to enhance this maintainance has been denied in past.
d. She left my house when i tried to move from my parents house to a rented accommodation few years back & this fact is recorded in local police station as her own admission. (PS: i can not take her back as she traps me & my family in false cases)
e. we do not have any child from this marriage.
need your guidance on (i.) what course of action should i take (ii) will this order effect my payout even if i appeal in higher court (eg if not 20000, asking me to pay much more than i am already paying).
look forward to your guidance
