I am a wife thrown out by my husband from the house. At present residing with my parents. I have filed a maintenance case against my husband. Now I want to file an application in front of court to pass an order to provide me with a residence. Learned and Respected Sir please help me and suggest. Thanks in advance.
The residence order can be claimed by the wife under section 19 the Protection of the Women from the Domestic Violence Act, 2005 and that petition lies in the court of the judicial magistrate of the police station area where the husband or wife are living and act of domestic violence comittted against the wife. The protection order u/s 18 and order for monetary under section 20 can also be sought by the wife along with residence order.
