My wife filed 498A, 406, 506 , 509 and 3/4 DP act. It is a fake FIR. She does not have any documentary evidence / Eye witness. She used to do ill-treatment with me and my parents. I already made GDE in my local police station and her location police station (without her knowledge). She stayed few months with us. then she left us.After one year leaving our house, she filed FIR in her police station. I got surrender-cum bail from court. The chargesheet is yet to be filed. My lawyer is telling he will speak with mywife family and try to settlement as such case will run for many years and there is no outcome of it. We donot have any kids so it is better not to fight the case and offer a settlement to girl family.
I feel that asking settlement she may ask huge money from us which i am not interested. ( she is earning 50K per month).
Please suggest should I ask the settlement now ? or will wait for charge sheet and after 1-2 years offer settlement if settlement request isnot coming from wife side.
