Maintenance X amount was given in CRPC 125, around 2 years back. After that Domestic violence case was filed for getting residence. Amount Y was given for providing rent amount for wife. So total amount X+Y is very huge for husband to pay now.
1. What are the options to reduce the maintenance ? can revision be filed in CRPC 125 case, to consider residence amount given under DVC as part of maintenance under CRPC 125 ?
2. Any other grounds for husband to approach on reducing this maintenance ?
3. Please provide if there are any citation/judgements supporting this ?
What was your lawyer doing?
Did he or she not tell you what to do?
Why did your lawyer let you pile up maintenance money ?
Till 2 years you were quiet, now you have come here. Dont feel offended.
But point is 2 years you have been quiet itself shows that you are well to do.
Now only that the final figure is so huge you have come here.
Instead of this, you could have as well paid little by littel to your lovely.
Now that there is enormous balance of alimony to be paid, clear it off with interest. and then go for change of circumstances appeal in HC.
Even if you go to HC I dont think your alimony reduction HC will do, as you have never gone to court and am sure that you did not file even objections for alimony application by your wife. Seeing this HC will dismiss your case for alimony reduction as I have told above.
Advice for you would be, change your lawyer. and follow what has been told above.
