Interim Maintenance Judgements

  • Deoki Panjhiyara Vs. Shashi Bhushan Narayan Azad & Anr.

    Court:Supreme Court

    Alleged suppression of earlier marriage by appellant-wife. Acting solely on basis of marriage certificate, trial Court as well as High Court proceeded to determine validity of marriage between parties though both Courts were exercising jurisdiction in a proceeding for maintenance. Till date, marriage between parties is yet to be annulled by a competent Court. If under law, marriage between parties still subsists appellant would continue to be legally married wife of respondent so as to be entitled to claim maintenance and other benefits under Domestic Violence Act, 2005. Mere production of a marriage certificate issued under Section 13 of Special Marriage Act, 1954 was not sufficient for any of the Courts, including High Court, to render a complete and effective decision with regard to marital status of parties and that too in a collateral proceeding for maintenance.

  • Shabnam Parveen Vs. State Of West Bengal & Ors.

    Court: Calcutta High Court
