Under such circumstances you need to file a divorce petition on the ground of mental cruelty. Denying sexual relationship to husband is a mental cruelty, secondly separating husband and his father in a same house is a mental cruelty. Thirdly Ignoring and not taking care of husband when he is ill is also a mental cruelty. I am sure if these three facts are proved then you will get decree of divorce from the court. Further I must tell you that if wife forces her husband to leave his parents and to live separately with her is also a ground for divorce as held by Supreme Court recently.

Sir in this case you can file divorce petition in court and seek divorce from court , you can also file domestic violence complaint against her and if you want to live with her then you can go for restitution of conjugal rights. You can also file case for seeking custody of your daughters.
