question iconDomestic Violence

I have been married for almost 3 yrs now. I don't have a kid. My husband has physically assaulted me many times. On one occasion he hit me while I was driving the car. He pulled the handbrake right in the middle of a busy highway and punched me in the face and ran away.
He also calls me kaamchor. I'm a working working woman and I try to manage as much as I can. My husband doesn't reveal his income. He doesn't earn much. He says business has ups and downs. He asks me to share each and everything that we buy for the house. He asks me to buy expensive gadgets for him. He asks me to pay for the things he has already bought before I came to the house. He doesn't give me any money at all. He threatens to leave me penniless if I try to argue/ not accept his demands.He recently punched me on my face. When I told this to my mother in law, she says that we both are equal in her eyes and we both fight. When I try to voice my opinion or try to tell her that he is fighting then she calls me psycho and asks me if I'm menstruating.She always tries to gaslight me. Even my husband says the same now .
I told my father and mother in law about the recent case where he punched me on my face. She asked my father to come and discuss ( 2 different states). She told him that it is their matter let the husband wife deal with it. Also she told my father that even your daughter has done so many things that I will discuss when you come.
I got to know from someone that my husband's father had schizophrenia. They hid this from me. I confronted my husband after two years. I feel that he has inherited this mental disorder.
I ran away from my married house and came to my parents house on emergency basis for 4 days after informing my company. My father is not supporting me, he is ready to talk to my in laws . What should I do . I don't want to stay there at all. As I feel my whole life is in danger

question iconi got an sms on my mothers number staing pwdva appln
Dear client, it is recommended for you to hire a lawyer as those sections of the act does not confer with the offences or their relation. Note that domestic violence cases are cognizable in nature so you can not settle out of court when the case has already been filed. If the summons stage is not over then send a reply notice and approach the court to avoid an ex parte order. Thank you

Dear Client, There is no law prohibiting you from doing this. So, you can use it if you wish but usually ongoing cases will not be accepted as the case is still running and it can affect the final decree of the current case. Thank you. Have a nice day.
