The amount you receive per month is maintenance.. to help you provide for your needs. Once the interim orders are passed, some courts follow summary trials and ask to file affidavits and the matter gets over soon. However this DV case will not decide the fate of your relationship.

It will only help you get an order not to be thrown out of the house, protection from domestic violence and maintenance. DV cases do not decide the fate of the relationship.

The second marriage is valid as both were divorcees. The second husband is liable to pay maintenance. The wife is entitled to compensation and shared accommodation under the domestic violence Act.
