Latest Judgments

The need to implement educational curriculum that allow room for the proper implementation of special needs education is growing daily. A good number of school programs currently used have little or no adjustments for children facing unique challenges. This sometimes prevents special need students from learning as effectively as other students in their class and influences how these kids feel about themselves.

Before :- Rekha Mittal, J.
CR No. 6198 of 2013. D/d. 12.12.2016.

Amit Kumar - Petitioner
Navjot Dubey - Respondent

For the Petitioner :- R.D. Sharma, Advocate.
For the Respondent :- R.S. Chauhan, Advocate.


Rekha Mittal, J. - The present petition directs challenge against order dated 11.09.2013 (Annexure P5) passed by the District Judge, Pathankot whereby the respondent - wife has been allowed maintenance pendente lite under Section 24 of the Hindu Marriage Act.

2. The sole submission made by counsel for the petitioner is that the maintenance allowed by the Court @ L 15,000/- per month is on higher side and liable to be reduced. To substantiate his contention, counsel has submitted that the respondent - wife is working as a Science Mistress in Government Senior Secondary School, Boha (Pathankot) and her gross salary in the year 2013 was more than L 38,000/- whereas gross salary of the petitioner was L 28,630/- and his carry home salary was L 18,030/-. It has further been submitted that gross salary of the respondent at present is approximately L 48,000/- whereas it is little more than L 37,000/- of the petitioner as of now. Another submission made by counsel is that the petitioner has an obligation to look after his old parents besides providing maintenance to the respondent.

3. Per contra counsel for the respondent has supported the impugned order with the submission that in view of sky-rocketing prices of necessities of life, expenses on education of two children besides their needs to grow well and face peer pressure, maintenance assessed by the Court below by no stretch of imagination can be termed to be excessive, warranting intervention.

4. I have heard counsel for the parties and perused the paperbook particularly the order impugned.

5. It is undisputed position of the case that the parties performed marriage on 10.10.1999 and two children one son and a daughter born out of their wedlock have been residing with the respondent - wife. The respondent - wife is working as a teacher in a government school and the petitioner - husband is working in the office of S.P. Kandi Township. The wife is drawing salary more than the husband and there is difference of approximately L 10,000/- in the gross emoluments of the wife viz-a-viz that of the husband. As per the settled position in law, the wife is entitled to enjoy the same amenities of life as she would have been had she been staying in the matrimonial home. Taking into consideration prices of daily necessities of life, expenses on education of the children who have to meet the challenges of the society and face peer pressure, I find it difficult to accept contention of the petitioner that maintenance pendente lite assessed by the Court below is on higher side and requires reduction.

6. For the foregoing reasons, the petition fails and is accordingly dismissed.

No one expects or enjoys the pain of divorce, and a bad marriage is often extended in a fleeting attempt to avoid it entirely. This is especially the case when kids are involved. An estimated 80% of married couples head towards divorce within five years and within ten years, 37% of remarriages end in separation or divorce. Age plays a big part in the fate of a first marriage, and couples who marry between the ages of 20 and 24 are twice as likely to divorce at any point in their lives than those who first marry over the age of 25. Many of those who marry young opt to stay in a broken marriage until the kids are out of high school. Of course, by then the pride of planning for college and concerns of impending college expenses can vie for dominance. What should be an exciting time of wonder is quickly consumed by fear and regret. A Michigan divorce doesn’t need to be postponed or avoided indefinitely due to worries over college expenses. In fact, a few simple tips can get everyone through this important life stage with minimal stress.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the average American lifespan is just under 80 years, and there are over 2.7 million deaths annually. That equates to approximately 844 deaths per 100,000 U.S. residents. Diseases and chronic health conditions top the list for the most common reasons for early fatalities, and that’s not surprising. After all, it’s no secret that poor lifestyle choices lead to poor health and often irreversible disease.

For those who receive minimal prior charges, they may be able to leave jail provided that they are placed on probation. Considering how important it is for many people to be back with their families and living productive lives, many choose to take this deal. However, an unfortunate part of probation is that it can be quite easy to end up violating the terms of probation. This happens quite often, and as a result, the individuals in question might end up scoring up more points that could lead them to a state prison, which might not even be where they were headed or kept before. In Florida, there are specific laws regarding probation, such as the points scored and what that means for the individual. Navigating the terms of the probation as well as finding justice in the event that those terms are violated is crucial to anyone seeking fair treatment in the court system.
