Not Mandatory To File Affidavit Of Assets, Income Etc. Along With Petition And Written Statement In Maintenance Proceedings
Kusum Sharma vs Mahinder Kumar Sharma
About/from the judgment:
Not Mandatory To File Affidavit Of Assets, Income Etc. Along With Petition And Written Statement In Maintenance Proceedings!
On careful consideration of the suggestions of the Family Courts and the learned amicus curiae, this Court is of the view that the affidavit of assets, income and expenditure should be filed simultaneously by both the parties, after completion of pleadings in the maintenance application, to avoid any undue advantage to the party who files his/her affidavit of assets, income and expenditure later. The simultaneous filing of the affidavit after the completion of the pleadings in the maintenance application would also give reasonable time to the parties to prepare their affidavits and compile the relevant documents and would avoid the delays.
The Court issued directions, which would be implemented with effect from 1 January, 2018!
