The Bombay High Court has ruled that once a woman has claimed permanent alimony as well as maintenance of her child from husband as divorce settlement, she cannot claim more money for the welfare of the child.
The ruling was delivered by Justice Roshan Dalvi, who heard an appeal filed by the husband against a lower court order.
Quashing the lower court's order, Justice Dalvi said, "When a party chooses to keep the custody of the child and consents for full and final settlement in the interest of the child, that party must presume and see the consequences of the custody and apply for whatever amount that he or she needs to that end. "The couple obtained divorce by mutual consent in 2005 and agreed to permanent alimony and maintenance for the child. As per the decree, Rs 10 lakh was to be given (Rs seven lakh to the wife as permanent alimony and Rs three lakh to the child for upkeep and maintenance).
