My Mother had filed a Maintenance case on her husband (in Karnataka), for which, he agreed to pay 2500/- every month and signed court order as well. However, he stopped paying after 3 or 4 months. She has taken help from the same advocate and the advocate has charged us with 10,000/- to open the same case.
From the time this case is re-opened, our advocate has not done anything other than sending him the notice - its been more at least 4 months now!
Everytime the notice is sent, its returned back stating the address is incorrect. Illogical, isn't it? Its his own house for God's sake. Also, I was hoping that the advocate would request the court for an FIR since he is refusing to access the notice - its been more than 4 months / about 5 hearings now.
Advocates are not doing anything other than sending one more notice!
Please guide, what are our rights and options ahead?
By the way, this is in Belgaum, Karnataka.
Thanks in advance.
