Why do you need a judgment to pay the arrears? You are already bound by the order, if any.


As rightly opined by Mr.Prashant ... why you need judgement if allready order has been issued and no set aside petition was filled by you within limitation period.

Now,act according to order to avoid any further litigations and any criminal procedure against you. Iam amazed that till now, after 3 years of order how you are safe,even no summon also been issued to you?

I understand there is   delay in order of maintenance by court resulting into accumulation of 3 years arrears. If so , he must go for appeal.
