Moreover the marriage was not consummated & therefore under sect 12 SUBSECTION(1) & CLAUSE (B &C) of HINDU MARRIAGE ACT WE HAD FILED FOR ANULMENT on 30/9/14. Now on 27/1/15 she has resigned from her job & u/s 24 HMA has moved her application for grant of interim maintenance pendete lite and litigation expenses. She has 1/3 share in house costing 70 lacs & 25 lacs balance in PPF A/C. Moreover she deposited 50000 in ppf after case

  • ansBased on your facts, you filed an annulment petition, unless the grounds have been proved your son and daughter in law are considered to be wife and husband and your daughter in law can seek interim maintenance under Section 24 of Hindu Marriage Act.
