Hi,

I have been abandoned by my husband who lives in USA. I am in India right now, living here on my own since last year.
Is it possible for me to file an FIR on grounds of cruelty under section 498a IPC? Can i go to the police station directly?
Please advise.

Dear Ma'am,

Yes you can file FIR/complaint in India if your husband is in USA. You have show that cause of action for filing the cases also happened in India in the complaint.

Abandoning you does not creates criminal offence but matrimonial offence if such abandon continues for 2 years at a stretch. Filing complaint before local police station will be useless and no FIR will be taken. It is better to send your husband letter to know the reason for abandoning you. This will help you to get divorce if you seek later
