You can quash the case under s. 482 crpc. Please refer to landmark judgment of Arnesh Kumar v. State of Bihar.
For filing a false case against you In 498A, you can file a application for malicious prosecution to the magistrate; once you win the case on merit.
She is not entitled for maintenance as she is a working lady. For tampering with records as I understand that she has forged documents, you can initiate criminal proceeding against her.
