I am a indian gal married to a NRI from the last 8 years and have a child of 6 years . I lived with my husband abroad for 5 years with many difficulties as he has a habit to physically abuse and when i came back to India , there was a big Dowry demand which was not fulfilled so he deserted me and my child and absonded the country . He is not traceble from the last 33 months and so my dv case and other cases are also lying as the court orders cannot be served to him . i have not got any maintainance from the last 33 months and i am dependent on my brother for my and my childs maintainence . My husbands has 2 properties in his name in bombay . The first property which is a one bed room flat occupied by his mother as she owns the next flat so they have made it into one flat and the second property which was under construction and now is ready for possession . How can i ask for maintanence from my husband when he is absonding ?? can his property pay off my maintanence in any way ?? how long should i wait for him and file for a divorce ??
