Since she was going to job whenever I call or message she was avoiding. I used to go every week to meet her and we travelled around for 2.5 months.

She said some negative points about me to her parents and they all decided to cancel the marriage. I have spent more than 50000 in 2 months for her. We had made advances of 500000 plus outside for marriage. When asked she said phone calls and messages r the reasons for cancelling this marriage.

In presence of elders we had a meeting and requested not to cancel the marriage keeping calls and messages as topic and also showed all the receipt of advances made. Elders requested bride but she was not ready to move ahead. At last, elders told bride family to give 150000 as compensation but they after accepting did not give amt and filed a fake complaint against me and my family members for which FIR was filed 354d 504 and 506. We took bail as well.

Husband denied to access my matrimonial home

I resided with my husband for a duration of five months in an apartment. The house is registered in the name of my father-in-law, yet my in-laws reside in a different state. I am the individual who invested all of my finances in the interior and household accessories for the house. This decision was made under the understanding that it is my residence, and consequently, I am accountable for its furnishings. I willingly accepted and utilized my entire salary for this purpose.

However, my husband is engaged in an extramarital affair and desires to marry his girlfriend. He is pressuring me to initiate a divorce and is also subjecting me to physical harassment. In response, I have filed for a Domestic Violence Complaint (DVC) seeking a residential order. Unfortunately, I am being denied access to my home, with the explanation that it belongs to my father-in-law. I am in need of assistance; please help me.
