Need Maintenance And Alimony?

India views marriage as a social compulsion. Today, there are many broken homes and more untied marital knots. Because divorce is legalized and problematic marriages are accepted as a normal part of Indian society, it seems that this is changing. We must also address the issues of divorce and the after-effects.


Alimony & Maintenance

In competition proceedings, the court is involved and will decide whether to award alimony or maintenance based upon the intrinsic worth of each case.

If the decree is received by the wife, then the court can grant alimony. The wife can be granted alimony by the court regardless of whether the husband has given an announcement.


There may be no alimony/maintenance, depending on the facts. The court is completely free to determine the amount of permanent alimony.


Maintenance is an essential aspect of matrimonial proceedings. A maintenance request is filed by a spouse who is unable or unable financially to support her family. Maintenance is dependent on the financial situation of the spouses, as well as the lifestyles of the parties.


There are two types of Alimony & Maintenance:


Interim Maintenance

Interim maintenance is a request for financial support from a spouse/civil partner that feels they need it during their divorce proceedings. Interim maintenance (also known as maintenance in a proceeding suit) is a monthly money payment that can be paid by either one of the spouses or civil partners. A court can order maintenance payments after an application or they can be agreed upon between the parties. BestDivorceLawyersDelhi team offers the best Interim Maintenance advisory service in Delhi.


When the divorce proceedings are started, a spouse can apply for Interim Maintenance. The court will determine the Interim Maintenance term based on the applicant’s financial situation. Both the applicants and clients will need to disclose information regarding their financial situation. A court can order one spouse or both to pay maintenance to their spouse. The BestDivorceLawyersDelhi team provides the best advice in Delhi to our clients.


Permanent Maintenance

Permanent maintenance is a decision made after matrimonial proceedings. In this case, the Court issues an order granting permanent maintenance on a permanent base. These orders are dependent on the facts, circumstances, and how the court finds the litigating parties according to their laws.

    How To Guide On Conditions And Procedure For Maintenance And Alimony In India?

    Indian Law permits the filing of a divorce and the commencement of divorce proceedings to provide for maintenance. Here are the details regarding maintenance in Hindu Marriage.


    • Section 125 CrPC(Criminal Procedure Code).
    • Section 20 of Protection of Women from Domestic Violence
    • Section 18 of the Hindu Adoption and Maintenance Act
    • Section 24 and 25, Hindu Marriage Act


    Its purpose is to provide the means and provisions for the spouse without fewer means. But it is often the man who is asked for maintenance and rarely are men considered financial beneficiaries. Because the judiciary is biased towards women in such cases, the BestDivorceLawyersDelhi team can help both men and women.

    Who is the legal authority to decide on alimony eligibility and amount?

    Alimony is determined at the state level based on state support laws. Alimony is usually decided in a divorce or separation proceeding. Judges consider whether one spouse is in financial need or whether the other can pay.

    Couples can also decide for themselves whether one spouse will provide spousal support for the other.

    How does the family court determine eligibility for alimony payments?

    The Uniform Marriage and Divorce Act Family judges decide eligibility for alimony based on factors set out in state law. This means that there might be slight differences among states.

    What amount of alimony can you expect to receive? How does this figure?

    Spousal support can be structured differently from child support. The amount and length of alimony payments can be determined by the judge. Although it is usually paid monthly, the payor may prefer to receive a lump-sum payment.

    What happens if my ex-spouse doesn't pay the alimony she was ordered to?

    Alimony cannot be enforced as strictly as child support. Failure to pay child support could result in wage garnishment and loss of professional licensure. A judge can place the spouse who is not paying alimony in contempt of court. He or she can also sentence them to jail.

    How long can I expect to receive alimony payments from my ex?

    Spousal support is usually intended to bridge the gap until the spouse receiving the alimony can support themselves. Spousal support ceases when:

    • A paying spouse can argue that the recipient spouse is self-supporting.
    • The spouse receiving the gift remarries or dies.
    • Although the spouse who paid the bills dies, the estate of the spouse who paid them may be required to continue making payments.
