I was forcibly married by my father in 2005 while studying in college 2nd year, even after resenting it for three years. I never accepted her as a wife, as she did nothing on her part to stop the marriage. In June 2010, I applied for divorce. After which she filed a case of dowry harassment and cruelty on my family. The facts she mentioned are all false and baseless. She refuses to agree for the divorce and has also asked for maintenance of 25,000 which is 3,000 more than my monthly salary. I had been tortured for years by my father before marriage, and now it is her parents. All this has happened due to my soft hearted nature. My father has accepted his mistake, but that will not change the situation. I also do not want to accept her ever back in my life as she is very foul mouthed and her presence suffocates me. I have hired a good lawyer, but what he tells is that these divorce cases linger for years with minimum 2 years. I am drained financially and have lost all hope in life, and sometimes think of committing suicide.
Can anyone give legal help to get rid of this forced relation as fast as I can.
