Dear Querist, In which court your wife has filed DV case and its how far from your place. Firstly, you will have to appear oppose the DV case and cite your personal difficulties. If your wifes' place is in Maharashtra then you can file a transfer application in Hon'ble Bombay High Court, if she stays of out of Maharashtra, then you will have to file Transfer Petition in Hon'ble Supreme Court.
IT is advisable to sit and discuss the internal differences between you. Normally the courts are inclined to grant reliefs to woman unless you present a strong case for not paying maintenance.

You can file petition for restitution of conjugal rights under s 9 of Hindu marriage act 1955, if you wants to continue your marriage with your wife and if you wants to separate from your wife you can file petition for divorce.
