Question from: Delhi

How could you say that it is a false divorce case? You must have some evidence to prove that it is a false case. If you have such evidence then you should place all those evidence in written statement. You should not create false evidence in protection against false divorce case. Instead of it, you should adduce all the evidence which you have to prove that it is a false divorce case.

You should contest the case and file your written statement within time. Don’t take unnecessary adjournments because it prolongs the proceeding. Written statement should be exhaustive. In the written statement, you should explain the ill motive of your wife. The court considers the motive for filing a false divorce case. Enmity between husband and wife is relevant fact to prove ill motive. Motive of plaintiff becomes significant in false case.

Your wife has to produce evidence

Making allegation is more easier than to prove it beyond all doubts. Section 13 of the Hindu Marriage Act envisages grounds for divorce. These grounds are based upon the guilt theory. The plaintiff is bound to prove each grounds. Thereafter, the court will pass decree of divorce. Therefore, burden of prove your guilt lies upon your wife. So, let her to discharge her burden of prove. If she adduces false evidence in proving your guilt then you should bring the truth before the court.

The wife has an ulterior or hidden motive behind filing a false divorce case. So, you should prove that motive with relevant evidence. You said that your wife does not want to live with her in laws. Probably it is a reason for filing such a false divorce case.

Counter each allegation with evidence

You should counter each and every allegation with evidence. Evidence may be oral or written but it should be relevant.
