quesHusband stopped maintenance. Next date after 3 months. What to do?

My husband is presently residing in US, he has filed a divorce case in delhi. Earlier he was paying me monthly maintenance. Now suddenly he has stopped it. Now since the next date of my case 3 months later. My lawyer is telling me he will bring this into notice of court on the date of hearing. But as i am a housewife how can i survive with no money. What should i do now? Do i have to wait for 3 months.

  • ansYour lawyer is advising you rightly, the same needs to be brought before the court. However you don't have to wait for 3 months, your advocate can move an application and bring the facts on record. Further in application he can also cite the reason for urgency.
