I have probably come to the right place as I am seeking some legal advice.
I am a single, 25 year old male, staying with my mother. Me and my mother have been staying seperate from my father for the past 4 n half years. In these years, my father has neither given us financial support nor emotional support. The reason for seperation was, mental and physical torture to my mother. Also he used to have verbal fights and used to abuse my mother when she used to ask for money for daily expenses.
My father used to run a retail shop for 25 years, which he eventually had to shut years ago due to huge amounts of loans that he had to re-pay. He also sold off the house we used to stay in, and never told us why he had taken so many loans and where did all the money go. This has been a mystery till date, to which he never replies with an appropirate answer.
He then changed his occupation and started his own estate consultancy. By that time I was 22 and fetched a job at BPO. He begin torturing me and my mother all the time, asking for money. Whereas, whatever he earned never used to give it for home expenses. When his harrassment kept on increasing, me and my mother finally decided to move out of the house and stay seperate.
Its now been nearly 4 years that we have been staying seperate. He is no longer in contact with us and neither do we know his whereabouts. 2 days ago, two unknown people came to my house looking for my father. They said that he owes about Rs.90000/- which he has not paid and is missing and they've threatened us that they will come again to our house till they catch hold of him.
Me and my mother are now being unneccessarily harrassed by people whom we do not know and have no clue how they got our residential address.
What are my options here. My and mother do not wish to stay with him, netiher do we want to take his responsibilty as we have had enough harrassment by his behaviour and conduct.
We've planned to call our relatives, keep a meeting with including a few close relatives and seek a mutual consent divorce between my mom and dad. I do not know if he will be ready to give a divorce.
Can you tell us as to how can we get rid of him from our life completely. Yes, I may sound a lil harsh here, but thats the story. Can't explain much but i genuinely want to lead a peaceful life, which we were untill 2 days ago.
