Also do I need to file a separate maintenance case for child and me? or maintenance can be claimed based on same divorce case? PLEASE PLEASE guide me, as even my lawyer i feel misguiding me and not filing maintenance for last 4-5 years and I haven't got a single pai till date but my husband has made legal ID proofs giving his name to another girl and he can afford her but not looking at us and telling lies in the court that he doesn't have income. Also he is denying that he has kept another lady.

See you are the legally married wife of your husband. You have basic right to get maintenance from your husband irrespective of the fact that he is having another lady with him or not. Talk to your lawyer and compel him to file maintenance case before the court......for both of you i.e you and your child.......also you can file criminal matter under domestic violence and 498 of IPC to teach a lesson to that go file it immediately......
