  • ansSir,
    If the spouse is earning and that to more than you, she is not entitle to calim the same as per judgment of Delhi High court 1991.But You have to prove the same showing her income in court by issuing summons to her Employer.
    As far as 498 case u can challenge the same as per recent judgment of supreme court if your case fall within guidelines .

  • ansYou can quash the case under s. 482 crpc. Please refer to landmark judgment of Arnesh Kumar v. State of Bihar.
    For filing a false case against you In 498A, you can file a application for malicious prosecution to the magistrate; once you win the case on merit.
    She is not entitled for maintenance as she is a working lady. For tampering with records as I understand that she has forged documents, you can initiate criminal proceeding against her.
    Thanks.
