I & my wife have filed for mutual consent divorce in Jan 2014. But she is not appearing for the dates given for final hearing at court. In the application/ agreement for mutual consent divorce we have mentioned a one-time permanent settlement of Rs. 6 lacs for herself & our son, out of which she has taken Rs. 2 lacs as advance.
Please note that 4 years ago she had walked out of my home out of her own free will & had filed case in 498A. Against which I had filed divorce case due to her cruelty. Legal war went on for 4 years after which we both agreed to divorce by mutual consent as mentioned above.
We have a 10 year old son who is my wife's custody. Please advise what all could be the outcome in case my wife does not appear at court on any of the hearing dates allotted by court within 18 months from the date of application. How should I safeguard myself against her malicious intentions? Isn't there any law in India which can stop immense torture of a man in her wife's hands? I am bankrupted due to the long court cases & emotionally completely drained. Please help.
