The alimony to a girl can't be refused only on the ground that she is earing good however sometimes court look in to the conduct of the girl while fixing alimony.
It depends upon the court whether to take action or not. But you can always sue her for filing false documents.
Defense in 498 A case depends upon facts and fixed set if defense can be recommended.
You can file a 420 complaint even if 497 A case is pending.
