Go for appeal, and buy some time. It is totally in lawyers hand to play around to buy some time in HC. In the meantime, try to get details of wife educational background, employmet background. If she is a uneducated person then noting much can be done in ths case, but try to file change in circumstances application at the end of each year asking revision of the alimony ordered in the lower court itself. That is the only way out.
Other way out is just dont pay money to wife, and dont get caught, keep playing hide and seek as much as you can.
Other option is, dont pay money at all for 3-4 years, then get caught and go to jail for 1 month and old balance is written off in one go.
All options explained, to be followed at own risk.
