Can maintenance be dropped if wife threats of false case on husband

Hi, what are the options for divorce for a male whose wife is indulged in extra martial affairs and has not even lived with him for a month. Now when she was caught red-handed, she put all allegations of 489a, DV, Dowry Act and many others. How can he dispose Maintenance claims from the wife. This will be a contested divorce. Thanks

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
