How can she get that?

Also, can her husband ask for a maintenance from her?

    any proceeding under this Act it appears to the court that either the
    wife or the husband, as the case may be, has no independent
    income sufficient for her or his support and the necessary expenses of
    the proceeding, it may, on the application of the wife or the husband,
