if you are healthy and able to work and earn money, and if she is not able to work and not able to earn money, you need to pay her money till she remarries.

thus have you paid any alimony to her as saying one time settlement or not in the deed filed int he court

as usually maintenance is paid till she remarries after divorce

No we have not mentioned anything about alimony. We decided to go for mutual settlement by just exchanging our gold given by either parties during the marriage. No maintenance or one time alimony is mentioned in the deed. 


Can my wife claim maintenance after the MCD decree is passed? Is it legally possible?

If your income can be assessed than wife not working  than you have to pay till she remarries .

you have one more chance!!!! ..As articulated by experts the maintenance can subsist till she remarries or your prove her relation. Having said that, guess you are supposing a futuristic action and the probability of that  occurance is 50% . But , when granting a decree by the good judge the court will ask and confirm from both on the terms and conditions agreed by both and stated in your 13b MCD petition, so either that time or before make sure you add a clause there are/will be no other claims whatsoever from either party after divorce.
