Please help . . .I am trying to offer advice to my married friend.
His wife of 9 months has hardly lived with him at his parents joint household. She keeps returning to parents for weeks and has stayed less than 20% of time.
She has tried to commit suicide unknown to him before marriage due to an unhappy love affair. She has tried since at his home. She told him she intended divorce from before they were married. She argues for a seperate house and that she cannot live in joint famly. Husband does not have means for this. She threatend court case but her father did not support at that time.
She became pregnant and after six weeks preganancy has stayed at parents apart from one week. She threatened to abort the child but has changed her mind. Her father wants her to return to husband but she remains at his house.
I have told him to record calls and sms and get evidence of all the above as well as letter fom her sayng she has come of her wn free will should she return.
Should he get evidence and then file fo RSR? Would this force some conclusion and give him grounds for future defence against a case and eventually divorce if necessary (desertion, mental cruelty)?
Would filing RCR help defend a future false DV or 498a at a later date?
What happens if wife returns after filing of RCR and continues pattern of visiting for short periods and then deserting for long time?
Becaue she is pregnant does that mea that the RCR can only be filed from after date of child's conception veen though pattern of desertion as already established months earlier?
