Please help me ..My family and i become victims of false 498a case by my wife..
I live in USA staying separate from my wife who also works in USA on H1B visa (we are not staying together since last 1 year ...we both live in different states in USA)...
I filed for divorce in USA couple of months ago and after which my wife travelled to India just to file false 498a against my parents/younger sisters ...She filed 498a case and returned to USA within 2 weeks...
FIR has false allegations ,lies, manipulated stories of dowry harassment ..
My sisters are studying in college and my old parents suffering with health issues ..All are made to visit police station, court which they have never seen in life..
My parents/sisters living in india received police letter to appear in police station and i have taken AB for all my family members ..
It is really horrifying experience of life to see my family suffering this way for criminal charges which we never dream of doing ever in life...
Now, all my family members are out on bail ....Its been 3 months and charge sheet is not filed yet ...
My lawyer is saying that waiting for court summons/chargesheet call is the only option ...is waiting the only way? ( and also i think my lawyer charged huge amount for AB )
My lawyer asked my wife's father abt their demands for closing the case/divorce and they demanded money.... I agreed to pay the amount and then my wife's father stopped responding to my lawyer's phone calls ....My wife family is not ready to end the case/divorce me even after agreeing to her money demands.....Either they want more money or they enjoy troubling my family for years and years by dragging the case..
what is next step should i take to save my older parents/college sisters from this case?
Can i not quash 498a case before charge sheet ?
can i quash my parents/sisters names from 498a case ?
We both (My wife and I) are staying in USA so is there any option to close 498a case against my family in India?
If husband and wife both are out of country then how false 498a case will proceed ?
Should i waste next 5-6 years of my life to fight for this case? How long trauma ?
Please guide me ..
