quesDomestic Violence Act 2005

My wife has filed a case against me under Domestic Violence Act, 2005. Today was the first hearing. The judge has asked me to submit a WS in the court, which I believe is my written statement as a respondent. I am fighting this case without a lawyer. Could you please tell me how I should submit my written statement in the court. The case is in Karkardooma Court, Delhi. The judge has asked me to send a copy of my statement to my wife and her lawyer also.

  • ansA WS is a written statement, meaning a reply against the Complaint that is filed against you by your wife in Domestic matter.

    The format of the written statement would go like this: Before the Hon'ble Metropolitan Magistrate, __th

    Court (i.e. the court room no.), Karkardooma Court, Delhi, Case No. _______ Name of Complainant ..................... Complainant v/s Your Name .....................................Responsdent. Written Statement under Domestic Violence Act, 2005. May it Please Your Honour, .......... Contents of the WS(Written Statement) .......... Date: Place: Signature.

    The copy of WS would have to be sent to your wife under Registered A/D. in an enclosed envelope. The copy of the A/D would have to be produced in the court to prove that the copy of the WS is already served to the Complainant i.e. in this case your wife.

    Your written statement should have the following : a. the evidences and facts,
    and b. avoid any controversial questions for which there does not exists proper evidences.
