I'm new to this forum not sure if this is the right place to ask the question.
My mom wants to file a case for maintenance but the trouble is we are not aware of his whereabouts from past 4 years, mostly we saw his lawyer. Most of the lawyers we met here say without his address or place of work, there is not much can be done. We know his ancestral address in UP but no one lives there anymore. We know his brothers address though which is in UP.
We live in Pune. Parents got married in UP. 4 years ago my father implicated my mom into fraud charges and used it as a basis for divorce, he filed this case in MP where he used to work.
8 months ago when the case was moved to family court in MP, he was asked to be present in court for hearing but fearing court may this time give some decision in mom's favour, he asked his lawyer to withdraw that case. After which court gave a decision that there is no ground for filing this case in MP when the family lives in Maharashtra and ruled in favour of mom and has asked my father to pay one time compensation of 25K for the pain we have gone through while attending this case. He has yet not actioned on the court order of paying 25k to mom, it has been 8months now.
Could you please suggest where to go from here. Any help will be appreciated.
