  • ansFirtly, you should lodge police complaint against your husband for cheating and criminal breach of trust. The police will be liable to trace your husband.

    You can even hire a detective agency to trace your husband and to collect evidences against your husband.
    Then file for divorce against your husband. On the contrary if your husband cannot be traced for service of summons you can apply for substituted service by paper publication.

    You can file criminal case u/s 498A, 494, 420, 506 IPC against your husband. He should be brought to books for his offences. Once he is arrested file case of maintenance as well u/s 12 of PWDV Act. Do not let him go so easily.
