Title: Advice urgently required
Post by: Ghousia Hashmi on June 18, 2017, 10:51:21 PM
I have filed an FIR against my husband under section 498 A. My lawyer has charged me 50000 to just file the FIR. He's never done any follow up nor he or his assistant have the courtesy to call and update me on the same. My lawyer says hthe money I paid covers up the FIR. He wants 1.5% of the alimony I get and that I have to do the follow up at the police station regarding the FIR. This is going on since last 5 months. I don't know what to do. Plz advice.

Dear,

if your complaint is false than try to make settlement with your husband because i my self facing the same problem, my wife has file FIR in july 2016 and its one year and still the case has not come on board for hearing, still charge frame is pending,
if this is a false case and if your husband has decide to fight the case on merit than if will take more 5+ years to decide the case and if you dont have the proofs than he will acquitted, than what will u do?
do u think what may be your life?
and if the case is truth and u have the proofs than even it will take more that 3 years for judgement, than appeal in upper court or high court.. who knows...
i am fighting the case bcos all the allegations in the FIR are wrong and this was just to extract money from us
So u got the experience,and about alimony. let me tell u that u have just file 498a, alimony will also be decided after divorce decree... so delhi abhi door hai

Hi, whoever you maybe, I don't think you ought to get judgemental about someone you don't know anything about. Firstly I needed advice from some advocate not some layman. I don't want to prove to you that I and my case are genuine. Plz , any lawyers up there, I need advice, urgently. Thnx.

Hi,
Now I have sympathy with you, So first change your lawyer if you're are not satisfied. Secondly, he is right no lawyer will follow up your cases held for investigation at Police station.

You have to understand that if an FIR has been lodged than investigation must be going on regarding your case, once the investigation gets completed the police will file a charge sheet in the court to the magistrate. The investigation takes time, but you please make sure that whether the FIR has been lodged or not.

The fee seems to be too high merely for filing an FIR. Fee a@ 1.5% may not be guessed, whether moderate or high, as you have not given the amount of alimony sought from your husband.

However, if you have any specific complaint along with some solid proof against hi, you can feel free to approach the District Bar Council with your complaint for investigation against him

Further, if you have lost trust on your lawyer, you may better change him.
