What to do if husband has filled false allegations and filled divorce


My husband filed divorce petition in Panvel Mumbai. He is having an extra marital affair. Post delivery one month he sent me to India to take necessary care from my parents but in the meanwhile he filed for divorced when my daughter was 3 months old. He is not even sending me money for daughter’s expenses. He stays in Qatar and cancelled our visa and insurance. I am not working currently n hv no source of income. He changed his house n now not giving me address. He has put false allegation on me that I physically assault him n that’s the reason he has filed for divorce. I punched him on his shoulder once coz he is torturing us a lot and not taking care of little one. Now he is using that against me that his life is under threat n I’m mentally unstable. In such a case can I still go n stay with him? After his acquisition

Mam my heartly sympathy is with u since u have to undergo such hardships in ur relationship. Mam I would like to advise u that u must take stringent action against ur husband who has bestowed u n ur little daughter. Mam first of all u must file an FIR under section 498IPC at the nearest police station for all all the cruelty u have been subjected to at the hands of ur husband and after doing this u must file a domestic violence case under sec 5 read with sec 18,19 n 20 of Domestic Violence Act 2005 to ensure that ur husband provides u with shelter n monetary benefits so that u can take care of Urself an ur little daughter, u r also at Liberty to file a maintenance claim under section 125 Crpc in order to seek maintenance amount from ur husband. Along with doing all the above mentioned stuff u shall also file a reply/written statement in the divorce petition filed by your husband at family court. Mam if u r not a resident of Maharastra then u can also file a transfer petition in Supreme Court to get this case transferred in ur home state/ home town.
