As far as your case is concerned, you can claim maintenance and the amount for the same must be decided upon by you and your husband.
In case your husband does not appear for the second motion within 18 months of filing the divorce petition, then your divorce petition shall be rejected by the court.Hence, in such a situation you can file for a contested divorce.
