  • ansYour query is silent on 

    1. whether you signed an settlement agreement?

    2. whether you had appear before district court or high court?

     

    We suggest you to first inspect the file and see the order of 22 nd Appril where court has given next date. Incase in the order the next date is not mentioned, ask your lawyer to move an application for giving you next date of hearing or mention the matter before the matter.

  • ansThe date of hearing was fixed by high court thus, if the respondent is not appearing in court, the respondent is defying the order of high court. Clearly a case of contempt is maintainable against the respondent.
