I am married in 2017 and I hindu by religion. She is a software engineer in a MNC. She was not interested in marriage and we never had consummated our marriage. I tried talking to her and her parents for four months to keep the marriage but, there was no response. Then I called my parents, their parents and relatives and we had a panchayat and in that meeting she said she has no interest in the marriage and we got separated from that day. I waited for more than a year and there was no contact from her from the day of separation. I filed for divorce and now her lawyer is saying she is ready to file a false 498 section against me unless I pay her money. So, could you please suggest how to act legally. Can I get a anticipatory bail. Can she ask money from me legally in court?
If I accept to give the money , can I ask court to nullity our marriage rather than a divorce as there was no consummation and we never lived as husband and wife.
