under some circumstances you can also seek divorce and ask for maintenance for you. but he has to pay for expenses of daughter till she becomes major. What I suggest is that you can file for maintenance for both even now.

Yes, you can file for divorce and ask for maintainance during the pendency of the case and also ask for permanent alimony. However, you need to show a grounds for such divorce, then only you are able to win the case.

First you send legal notice then you file maintenance after if necessary to divorce than file or demand for restoration of conjugal rights or file criminal case under section 498A including his ex girl friend
