This is what one of the good lawyer suggested to my known to. Removing original ID's as this is public forum
Dear Ms. XXXX,
Normally divorce petition on the basis of cruelty etc. take years together for decision in Court; further once your husband comes to know that you simply want divorce asap, then he will try to delay the matter one way or the other; still further, if you ask him for mutual consent divorce, he may not agree. And hence, even if you want divorce, the better way is to file following cases instead for divorce directly:
1. Complaint of domestic violence BEFORE CHIEF JUDICIAL MAGISTRATE claiming resident order, maintenance, compensation for any loss, etc.
2. Criminal Complaint (Written) in "CRIME AGAINST WOMEN CELL" for Dowry demand and misappropriation of Istridhan by the husband and in-laws under section 498A/406 I.P.C.
For claiming maintenance, you need not leave your job; the court decides the maintenance on the basis of disparity in the income of husband and wife and the status under which you had been residing with your husband. There is no fixed formula for the court to decide about the amount of maintenance; it all depends upon the income of husband as well as wife; dependents on the income of husband and many other factors.
Even if you want divorce asap, don’t say it or show it to your husband, let him feel the heat of aforesaid suggested cases, he will himself ask for mutual consent divorce, for which you can agree on your terms. Filing the aforesaid cases may cost you some money on litigation, however, it will better.
