Domestic Violence

Interim order passed by judges under the DV act

In one case the house belonged to the Wife and her mother in law jointly. The house was on loan and EMI was being paid by the husband. The wife demanded right to residence or rent and also claimed maintanance. The court has order rent of 10000/- for the wife and 5000/- as maintanance for the child. But the best part is that the earning wife has been ordered to pay 50% of the EMI along with baklog to the husband by the wife. So this is a great arrangment wherein the wife gets only 3000/- as net maintanance.

In another case the Wife claimed for 60000/- maintance and also right to residence. The judge ordered both the couples to live together in a seperate flat of the husband and ordered the husband to bear all the house hold expenses and ordered 2500/- other expenese for both the wife and the child.

From the above two interim orders under the DV act it can be seen that the judges are trying to do justice in their own way. If the act is too onesided then even the judges know how to play with the law and at the same time deliver justice.

In both the above cases the hungry wives dint get any great monitory benefit but were given hidden reliefs.

Following are some of the DV judgments:
