A. Dear Sir,
You can hire advocate free of charge as follows:
===========================================================================================
Dear Friend,

You need not worry. You can get free advocate from this authority. Try. Similar facility is available in every State.
=====================================================================================
State Legal Services Authority
105, High court (PWD) Building, Fort, Mumbai - 400 032.
Tel.: 022-22691395 / 2263 1358
========================================================================================
Maharashtra govt increases income criteria for free legal aid
=========================================================================================
Now, people whose annual income is up to Rs72,000 will be eligible for free legal aid. The move by the state government to increase the annual income of individuals from Rs50,000 to Rs72,000 is in a bid to reach out to more citizens in need of free legal aid.

A Government Resolution issued by the Law and Judiciary Department on October 30, a copy of which is available with dna, states that the proposal to increase the annual income criteria was pending before the government. That proposal was approved after receiving a go-ahead from the finance department.

The change will come in effect by making amendments in section 16 of the Maharashtra State Legal Aid Service Rules, 1998. As per statistics available in the years 2010-2011, a total of 5,255 applications were received, in 2012-13 there were 6,529. The total beneficiaries in the corresponding periods were 14,985 and 6,602. Matrimonial matters consume most of the legal aid services followed by under-trial prisoners and property disputes among relatives.

SB Bahalkar, deputy secretary, Maharashtra State Legal Aid Services Authority (MSLASA) said, “The move is commendable and it will help more needy persons who are unable to fight their cases properly because they cannot afford private lawyers.”

The eligibility criteria is not applicable to women and children of all castes and religions, members of the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribes. As of now there are around 250 advocates associates on the legal aid panel across the Bombay High court and lower judiciary in Mumbai.

In the high court, an advocate on the panel gets around Rs2,100 as fees and actuals of other expenses. The amount is less in the lower judiciary as compared to what private lawyers make on an average.

What if i dont have proof of exact income of my husband and he leaves in Nepal and he isolated me. I dont know the exact income

Reply

A. Dear Client,
You can file a case on your husband for claiming maintenance from him for yourself and your daughter . Apart from this, if you still want to live a conjugal life with him then you can file a case for restitution of conjugal right. As per your litigation expenses are concerned, it depends from one advocate to another .
Thanks.
