woman have better right inspite of man. did you files restitution of conjugal right case? you can take defense and tell to court that your wife also a doctor and earning well money. if you have strong proof of her income then submit into court. there are lot of supreme court citation says that if wife earn well money then she doesn't have right to ask for alimony. moreover sec 498A case is tottaly depends on proof and proofs..defend yourself with all strong proofs .
