A.Dear Client,

You have the right to lodge a complaint against your abusive husband for mental and emotional cruelty amounting to domestic violence at the local police station under Section 12 of the PWDV Act, 2005. You or someone on your behalf can directly approach the Magistrate seeking relief under this Act. Additionally, you can consider filing for divorce citing cruelty under Section 13 of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955, and claim maintenance/alimony. You also have the option to file a complaint online with various human rights and women's commissions, such as the NHRC, NCW, and State Commissions for Women. NGOs specializing in assisting distressed women can provide further support. If you're unable to afford legal expenses, you can request free legal aid from the State or District Legal Services Authority under Section 12(c) of the Legal Services Authority Act, 1987.

A.Dear Client,
In the prevailing situation, you have the right to file a complaint against your unruly husband who subjected you to mental and emotional abuse that amounted to domestic violence in the local police station under Sec.12 of the PWDV Act, 2005. An aggrieved person, a Protection Officer or any other person on behalf of the aggrieved person may present an application directly to the Magistrate seeking one or more reliefs under this Act. You may also consider divorce on the grounds of cruelty under Sec. 13 of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 claiming maintenance/alimony from the husband. Apart from this, you can make a complaint online (https://nhrc.nic.in/complaints/complaints/how-to-file-a-complaints) to the Chairperson, the National Human Rights Commission, New Delhi and the State Human Rights Commission along with the Chairperson, National Commission for Women and State Commission for Women who are empowered to investigate complaints related to issues faced by women in distress by sending an email to [email protected] or filing an online complaint. Further, you can also approach the State Commission of Women situated in your state, and seek help from the local NGOs that render dedicated service to women in distress. If you are not financially sound enough to continue with litigation expenses, you can apply before the Member Secretary, State Legal Services Authority or Dist. Legal Services Authority seeking free legal services available to women under Sec.12(c) of the Legal Services Authority Act, 1987 to contest the cases before the Court for appropriate relief.
