We are married in February, 2009 by SPecial Marriage Act. But in July 2010 my wife filed a case for NULLITY of marriage on pressure of her parents after they came to know about our secret marriage.
But for last few months while the hearing was going on and my advocate was crossing the Judge went in favour of me and realised the fact that all the allegation they gave was false and not sufficient for Nullity as I had lots of proof of our cohabitation and conjugal life. When their advocate understood that the case was going against them, my wifes advocate proposed for a out of court mutual. The judge also suggested for mutual consent divorce. I always wanted that Mutual Divorce because I was against the NULLITY with all those false allegation.
last week the advocate of my wife has told my advocate that they are NOW ready for mutual Divorce. They will admit the marriage and go for divorce.
My question is
1) My wife is working in a MNC and earning good. Can she demand maintenance from me? I am a student and dont get salary, I just get Scholarship.
2) I heard that you need 6 months after filing a mutual divorce case. As we have already passed 3 years on that NULLITY case, can I ask the court for a earlier decree without waiting 6 months.
3) They harrashed me with false allegations for those 3 years. Can I make any case of defaming me?
4) Can I file any case against giving false statement in the court? I heard giving false statement in the court is a criminal offence. I have enough proof to prove her statements false.
