Dear Learned Counsel/Advocates,
- Hindu Marriage in 2007
-Son was born, out of wedlock in 2008.
-Husband/Myself, handicap due to accident, so wife left in 2009.
-Wife never let husband or husbands side of family to see his son.
-Husband filed for divorce in 2011. Husband unemployed due to handicap status.
-Whereas, wife is software Engineer, and earns Rs. 87,000 / month + Rs, 42,000/month rental income. And has a flat in Mumbai worth 5.75 Crores.
- The marriage didn’t sustain for more than a year, until wife deserted her husband because of his physical incapability’s. I read lot of articles online where it says that, only if the marriage sustains for at least 10 years, is when spouse can ask for a PERMENANT ALIMONY? Is that right?
- Is it only one way alimony? That only husband has to pay to wife? Even if wife is working?
- In maintenance petition wife is not granted any relief, as she is working, so she is trying as hard as she can to grab hold of a LUMPSUM ALIMONY. But do a handicap unemployed husband still has to pay ONE TIME ALIMONY?
NOTE: As far as wifes living conditions are concerned, then she is earning more, as she got promoted to a higher rank, so her living condition is far better than when she was married.
Please advice, and thank you all in advance.
