Dear Sir,

As wife is residing in Mumbai and cause of action happened in Mumbai, she can always file the cases in Mumbai. She can also file maintenance case against the husband for the maintenance of child in Mumbai. For filing the case in Kolkatta, it would become very difficult to make out the jurisdiction. Hence file the cases in Mumbai.

Regards,

keep this in Mind that consequences of cruelty which are likely to drive a woman to commit suicide or to cause grave injury or danger to life, limb or health, whether mental or physical of the woman is required to be established in order to bring home the application of Section 498A IPC.
