Maintenance and other benefits by first wife

Hi, 'A' is an Assam rifle constable and has divorced his fist wife 'B'. 'A' remarried another woman 'C'. Is it possible for 'B' as a first wife to claim family maintenance or any other benefits?

Expert Advice


Yes, B is entitled for maintenance even after divorce. As during the divorce petition if the order of maintenance is not filed then B can file a separate petition for maintenance after divorce under section 125 of cr. P.C. The only condition for objection is that if B remarry with some one If there is any child from the said marriage then A is bound to give maintenance to the child from first marriage. As for as the maintenance is concern it can be one time, yearly or monthly.
