Interim Maintenance
« on: June 13, 2017, 09:58:17 AM »
Dear Sir/Madam

I got married in Apr 2015 and my wife left the marital home in May 2015. After attempts to sustain the marriage failed. I filed divorce in Oct 2016.
After which she had filed 498A case on me and my family in Nov 2016 and 125 Crpc in Dec 2016.
She claimed for 10K interim maintenance, which is blindly awarded to her without considering the facts of my case. Maintenance is yet to be decided.
My lawyer says 10K is a nominal amount which can be paid, where as i earn only 8K per month.

Please advice what should be my next action.
Also i cannot pay such huge amount as maintenance. What if i pay only the amount which i can save monthly.

Please guide me.

Interim Maintenance-How courts calculate
Interim maintenance is awarded under s.24 of HMA, the basic purpose of interim maintenance is to provide fixed reasonable amount to the wife pending litigation, so that she could survive to fight the legal battles. But this term reasonable is a relative term, court has to keep certain factors into mind before awarding an amount of interim maintenance, Here are the come of the points, where an amount come from-:

Essentially the question is one of balancing several competing claims. Ordinarily reasonableness would require ensuring the receipt of the same amenities and comforts by the wife, as she was getting when residing with the husband as a member of his family minus the reduction necessitated by separation and creation of two establishments. This can be achieved by providing for wife’s separate residence and dividing the balance of the husband’s net income equally between all the members. In the event of any one or more others of the family being earning members, their income can be taken into account for reducing the husband’s liability towards them, even though wife herself may not be able to claim any share there from. Thus the problem does not admit of any inflexible formula. These are a few of the many relevant factors.

The income tax return of the husband cannot be taken as the sole guiding principle of income of the husband.

In  Dinesh Gijubhai Mehta vs Usha Dinesh Mehta This is a case where the husband is staying as member of his father’s family which consists of (1) the father, (2) mother, (3) brother and (4) sister, and (5) the husband himself. The wife was staying as a member of the said family till she left or was compelled to leave the same. Now she is residing with her father. This dishouses with the need to provide for any shelter. The wife’s allegation as to the husband’s income of being Rs.1250/- cannot be accepted in view of the employer’s certificate produced by him. His gross income is Rs.950/- per month and the net income is found by both the Courts to be Rs.720/- per mouth. Her allegation about the family having any dry-fruit business, and the brother and sister being earning members shall have to be rejected in view of the husband’s emphatic denial and in ability of the wife to furnish any particulars. Her allegation that the father of the husband is earning Rs.1,500/- per month shall have to be accepted. The husband has denied this. But he has not denied that he serves as an Education Officer in the Corporation. He has not cared to indicate what was his income, if not Rs.1500. The husband’s bare assertion in paragraph 14 in surrejoinder that his total per capita income is Rs.265/- cannot be accepted without detailed particulars. His allegation that the wife earns Rs.450/- per month also is liable to be rejected in view of the wife’s denial. Certificate produced by her only shows that she was employed only for 15 days. Total income of the family is thus Rs.1500 Plus Rs.720 = Rs. 2,220. The share of each of six members in the income thus comes to Rs.370/-. The amount of maintenance fixed by the learned Judge in appeal, of Rs.350/- does not appear to be thus excessive or objectionable in any manner. The amount of Rs.370/- may get reduced to Rs. 350/- if the unspecified necessary deductions in father’s salary are taken into account. Additional expenses for the education of the brother and the sister could have been taken into consideration. However, no details of particulars are specified by the husband.

Please file an appeal against the maintenance awarded if you are unable to pay the maintenance. As you are saying your salary is 8000 per month and you maintenance is 10000 per month. You may get some relief once you file the appeal. I hope you have not consented for payment of the maintenance to your wife in the court for 10000.

Interim maintenance awarded to your wife is Ex party order ?
As per my view after checking you pay slip, Rs 10000 Interim maintenance cannot be grated at any circumstances. If after considering  your pay slip  Rs 10000 Interim maintenance is granted to your wife then this order is bad in eye of law and need  reconsideration.
