What happens if husband does not pay manitenance


 If wife is earning enough, and still court direct hsuband to pay the maintenance, and if husband

does not follow the court order, what will happen? What punishment court can give to husband for

not following court order? Can his assets (bank accounts, properties)  be freezed?  Why must a husband pay to a wife who files fabricated 498a against him and harass him at each occasion she gets.

I the maintenance is awarded u/s 125 Cr.P.C then the court can sent the husband in prison, or if the maintenence is under Civil law then court can attach his property, his salary or may be freeze his bank account if necessary. You will have to follow the courts order, otherwis eyou will be in trouble.

One can't become Judge to self case !

2. If you strongly believe what you state in your brief then doors till Hon'ble Sc are open to get desired relief.

Try for revision / appeal / SLP at the earliest to reverse lower courts Order.

I do agree to Ld. Ashok's breif reply.

Mr. Mani

                     I agree with the answer of Mr. Ashok as you have not cleared that under which provision your wife have filed for maintenance ....
