Hire a good lawyer, try to collect and preserve as many evidences as possible about the extra marital affair of wife. Make it ground of your divorce along with false harassment caused and maintenance will be dropped on account of that.

Having an extra marital affair, can be s ground for divorce only if it proved beyond any doubt but living apart for a month is not af all any ground..Once her bad character is established in the eyes of the court, maintenance definitely can be stopped..Regards team LAWYER MITRA
