Dear client,
If permanent alimony finalized by the family court then no question of monthly maintenance to the same party in DV case.So you should be inform before the judicial magistrate about the permanent alimony finalized by the family court, so you submit the petition before the judicial magistrate where DV case is pending with certified copy of order passed by the family court.
