If she don't appeal before 60 days to cancel divorce then your divorce is final. Maintenence you have to give as she is legally married wife till she marry for second time. This has nothing to do with job tell your advocate to settle the case by permanent alimony.

Exparte divorce case will decide one time permanent alimony .try for it . I think if some amount of maintenance is already ordered , you have to pay that till divorce granted with alimony amount if not included .

Dear client,
In your case if your wife will not appear before the court after paper publication then the court passed ex-parte decree in favor of you .in maintenance case you pray before the court for dismiss the case as because the petitioner (wife) of the maintenance case not appeared before the court.
If your wife intentionally avoid to attend the court date for lingering the case then definitely she will set-aside the exparte decree by showing any false reason only to lingering the case.i suggest you if such type of situation will be happened then you strongly objected it and also challenged it .
Sub judice divorce and maintenance case can not create any problem for getting any govt job.
