Default 498a

Me and wife married in India 12 years ago and since then have lived in USA and are Permanent residents. Marriage never worked out and no love or physical intimacy last 9 years. Living as room mates. One kid. I want divorce. There has never been any domestic violence or dowry charge ever either in India or USA . Concerned if I ask for divorce she might file 498a. If she does will that hold good in court even though we never lived in India entire marriage other than a few times visited parents on summer vacation in India.

Default Re: 498a

I wish to inform you that after 7 years of marriage dowry case is difficult to be filed under Section 498a of IPC in absence of clear evidence. Domestic violence case may require evidence of use of force against wife. In absence of any evidence you may not be held liable for anything.
