Interim Maintenance Order under Sec. 24, HMA was ordered over 2 months ago. Applied for a certified copy of the order right away but it has not been ready yet.
Now wife and her lawyer are asking me to pay the arrears or that they will ask the Family Court to stay the main petition proceedings till then.
1. She has not even filed a petition for collection of Arrears (Collection or "Darkhast"). Isn't this mandatory ?
2. I intend to challenge this Interim order but am waiting to receive the certified copy of the Order. Can I not say this to the Judge ? Can the Court compel me to deposit the Arrears in these circumstances ?
