My wife Living separately with mutual agreement in written since eight years. Now she have file a case of domestic violence .In dv can she claim right to residence under section 19 of the dv act and ask for maintenance under section 20
No maintanence to wife if she is staying seperately by mutual agreement . If she is earning HRA than she cant even claim that you provide her for a rented place but she can claim right to residence if the property is in your name .
But in case you have children and she has the custody of them . Than she can seek maintanence for the children .
Than take a rented place and stay . And she can seek a right to residence at the rented place . your father can very well throw the both of you out of the house so you dont have to bother and there is always a option where he can disown you :-)
