My DV case is running. Have given only one months maintenance. Judge asked the other party to produce evidence , when they prayed for arrears of IA. They took dates for the third time for submitting evidence. On the third date, they put up a petition for return of stridhan. We have always said that we are willing to give back whatever she has left behind in her matrimonial home but via court. It was obviously under her custody only.
They keep on changing the weight of silver articles , gold and silk sarees given to her from her house in DV , FIR, and in the latest petition for returning. No 406 on us.
In the DV, silver was NEARLY 2 kg, silk sarees 5 numbers. In the FIR, it went up to 21/2 kg and in the latest petition, it is 31/2 kg and 9 silk sarees. But gold ornaments they have maintained a steady MORE THAN 300 grams in all these. During the wedding her father voluntarily said that all her gold ornaments may weigh around 100 to 120 grams. We have not verified. I know it is no where near 300 grams. Ditto with silk sarees.they are lying all over.
During the last date we have agreed to hand over whatever she has left back in her matrimonial home. The items match as pre their list save one necklace which they have added up.
my question is , can I carry a digital weighing machine to the court and weigh the ornaments before handing over to them? And request a recording of the findings? I have also a 498a to fight. This should help us there. Once they take back I have no way to prove how much they were lying here also. This may sound funny and unusual. But I feel exposing the lies of the other party is very important. They have lied brazenly under oath each time and in each sentence. I have submitted with proof in my objections. And that's the reason they are not coming for the evidence.
i haven't lied anywhere in my petitions. So I am not embarrassed in the court room and not scared also. I attend each date with my mother. And really fast dates we are getting. I dont need to lie, but I am no Jesus to show my other cheek to them for another slap. I have really gone thro tough times because of their lies and false charges. I must defeat them in their own game. There can be a first in all cases. What should I do? Time and again right from the beginning, I have derived immense knowledge and strength from this forum. I began as a person who did not even know where to file a divorce petition. My lawyer co operates with me a lot. She welcomes my suggestions and accepts it too if she finds it ok. And we have not looked back.
kindly pour out all you inputs and suggestions.
