As a defect measure, first you should start sending her sufficient money for her maintenance. The amount should be proportionate to your income.

Please read "defence" instead of "defect"

The amount of maintenance will depend upon the "standard of living" you provided her at the time of separation.

You can seek restitution of conjugal rights, seek judicial separation, or divorce, to secure yourself.
