Can wife file second application for maintenance?

Estimated Reading Time:

Whether the second application under section 125 crpc is maintainable? The first application has been decided on merit u/s 125 cr.p.c. maintenance paid to daughter till her majority. Now she moved a fresh application under 125 cr.p.c. for her maintenance.

In your case, she had filed the first application for her daughter’s maintenance. Now she has moved the second application for herself. Section 125 crpc provides alimony to children, wife and parents who have been living in vagrancy.

Hence, the second application is valid according to law. Section 125 crpc does not bar to file such an application. However, she cannot seek similar relief in the subsequent application but claim two different relieves in two different applications.

Now the court has to decide whether her claim is genuine. If she has been living in destitution then she has the right to get financial help from her husband. The husband cannot refuse to maintain her.
