I want to end this traumatic relationship now. Please advice as financially I am still dependent on my husband. How to go about it?
Expert Legal Advice:
You can seek Divorce from your husband on the grounds of cruelty or alternately you can also seek judicial separation instead of going for Divorce.
Since you are financially dependent on your husband, you can claim the alimony from your husband at the time of Divorce which includes the money as well as living accommodation. Your husband shall be required to give the alimony amount according to the standard of living that you had been accustomed to, as on date. Besides you can also claim the maintenance during the pendency of the Divorce petition, along with the maintenance of your children.
You husband is required to pay for maintenance, besides alimony amount per month for your children as decided by the Hon'ble Court.
