Hi, I got married 2.5 years back and have one kid. My marriage had lots of ups and downs and the main reasons are - my wife's temperament, abusive and completely foul language, unhygienic living habits and taking no responsibility as mother or wife. Sometime our verbal arguments go out of hand and situation is explosive. She and her father have constantly threatened me with abusive language and say that "we will destroy you", "we will file police complaint" etc etc. As of now my wife is living with her family.
After a lot of thinking I have decided to come out of this relationship. When I discussed the matter with my father in law he straight away denied and said that he won't let me go so easily. I have few questions :
1. What precautions should I take so that I can safeguard myself and my family in case they approach police with false case .
2. I don't 'have any evidence so what should I do before filing for a divorce case. Do I need evidence in physical form ?
3. Can they approach police to register an FIR after I apply for divorce in court?
4. What should I do to minimize the amount of maintenance (lumpsum or monthly).
