Wife along with her only US born citizen male child 8 year old, leaves her matrimonial home abroad, returns to India and in less than a month after her return, sends a legal notice for consented divorce to her husband and without waiting for the reply though requested for, files a divorce petition in a family court and travels back abroad and secretly withdraws cash from four banks in one day using the joint account facility provided to her in good faith and trust by the husband, the sole earning member of the family and returns to India without visiting her matrimonial home nor even contacting her husband at least by phone. She discontinued the child's education abroad on a false written representation, collected jewelry from a bank locker, important documents, academic records of the child when her husband was out of city on official business, when she left with the child her matrimonial home abroad in full conspiracy, connivance and collusion with her parents who sent two electronic air tickets to her in advance to facilitate her travel.
Pertinent to state, there are no grounds for divorce which can be proved in the court as recently declared by the Hon'ble Judge in the open court hall after his prolonged attempt for reconciliation. The other cases viz., child custody, maintenance, 498a and 406 are under process.
The question, given the background truthfully, is whether or not it is a case of desertion. If so, whether the Petitioner is entitled for maintenance and for child custody. Leave alone 498a and 406 which were glaringly proved as false, not to be taken cognizance of except to bear the delay, energy and resources.
