Husband and wife got divorced one year back. During the Pendency of the Divorce case, the husband was directed to make payyment of Rs. 20,000.00 towards the interim maintenace. Husband claims that he was paying this money in cash to his wife. Wife never ever filed any recovery application during the pendency of proceedings. The court proceeded to grant decree of divorce. This case was going in the family court for almost 7 years.
Now after one year of decree of divorce the wife has approched the family court with Regular Darkhast claiming that husband did not paid the maintenace during the pendancy of proceedings.
Can Such RD be entertained by Family Court ?
Whether a wife after termination of divorce proceedings claim the Interim Maintenace under RD?
Whether this claim is hit by law of limitation?
