My brother is a govt employee, a false 498A was filed against my parents and brother both were jailed. My brother was also suspended for 1 year as he had spent 48 hrs in jail. With god’s grace suspension is revoked and he is back to work.
Though there is lot of agony to share but now we need advice on the following
She is applied for divorce. She is asking for maintenance of 6 lakhs (lumpsum) (intially had asked for 20 lakhs ) or 5,000 per month.(initially she had asked for 15,000 Per month)
status: No children and she had lived with us only for 6months.
We are not interested even giving a penny to her for all the humiliation we have gone through .This is communicated through court mediation sessions held and we are ready to fight the 498A case.
During the mediation session the director suggested us an option of taking mutual consent divorce if they(girl’s side) agree to without giving any maintenance at the time of divorce But later she would file 125 for maintenance and we can counter file some case (that we are not aware of at present) as to not give maintenance
1. Should we go for a mutual consent divorce (as 498A is still pending) ? does going for a mutual consent divorce quash 498a ? The concern here is we don’t want to end up paying any money to her if she files 125
2. And what is this Law 125-At present we have no understanding of this law.
Plz adviceon how to go about.
