Woman file for maintenance 3 years after divorce

New Delhi, Oct 10 A woman Saturday approached a city court demanding maintenance from her first husband three years after their divorce.

Filing a petition before Metropolitan Magistrate Archna Sinha, Kirti said that she is entitled for maintenance from her first husband.

Kirti and Mayank got married Nov 23, 2000 and after seven months of marriage, Kirti left her husband. She gave birth to a child Nov 13, 2001.

Kirti then filed a divorce petition in court in 2006 which was granted on mutual consent. Kirti and Mayank have since then married their respective partners.

But after almost three years of divorce, Kirti is now seeking maintenance for her son and herself.

Mayank, on the other hand, submitted documents of Kirti’s second marriage and stated that she was not eligible for any sort of maintenance from her first husband.

Mayank also said that Kirti is now troubling him and calls him up at odd times.

The court, after hearing both the parties, pulled up Kirti for creating unnecessary trouble for Mayank, who is now well settled with his second wife and sent the case to mediation centre and asked them to solve the matter expeditiously.

The court also asked Mayank to pay Rs.2,000 per month each to her and their son till the final outcome of the case.
