1) Arranged marriage, MIL demanded that marriage had to be conducted grandly and took over 2.5 lakhs worth of gold/silver/etc. Abusive relationship, so got separated from past 1.3 years.
2) mentally tortured me a lot; he and his family threatened and forced me to write a note saying i am leaving him on my own will; and made me leave leave the house which was in different city (no my parents city)
3) husband stated many times he will go legally/will file for divorce/ created fights and pushing me to apply for divorce.
4) we both are working in MNCs, his salary would be double (or more) than mine.
Now my question are:
1) Can i apply for divorce; maintance and DV (as its been more than 1.3yrs) ?
2) If other party doesnt take the court divorce notice, I understand that ex-parte will be granted eventually. How about the maintaince? (i dont have any proof of his income though i know his approximate salary).
3) If ex-parte happened then will the maintaince case be scrapped along with it or how does it work?
4) How long would it generally take to get an ex-parte ( am saying ex-parte here because we are sure that they wont take the court notice - as they just wanted to get rid of me and not pay any compensation/alimony).
Please clarify my doubts.
