First of all thanks to all who replied me on my Query - Custody of my daughter.
Further I have couple of questions
1) What are the provisions of 498A..with respect to arrest a) if the husband(me) does not have an anticipatory bail then how many days it can take to get a bail after he is arrested, (In my case my daughter stays with me, my arrest can greatly disturb her - so far my wife has only threatened me of 498 but she had made an NC in local police station about me for dowry & DV in june 2009. In the NC she has mentioned that she has been staying separately for the last one year , subsequently i have replied the police through a letter about her wrong doings and malafide intentions) I have an acknowledgement of the letter i gave in the local police station. Is it possible to get an anticipatory bail?
My wife through her brother is demanding Rs.10 lakhs to settle and she will give me divorce and custody of the child. This is absolutely cheating as I suspect she is staying with her boyfriend, but it is extremely difficult to gather proof. I stay in mumbai and she is in rajasthan(paternal home) her brother stays in mumbai.
2) Is there any provision for a minor child(6years 8 months) complaining about her mother's violence on the child.
