My friend filed a divorce case under sec 13(I) after few weeks of married life, respondent not appeared in court, his lawyer said that he can get expartee divorce.
But without informing him, he filed another case for maintenance which my friend came to know recently, in that case also respondent not appeared and it's in mediation.
Without informing my friend, his lawyer filed a case. So he has to give maintenance even without his appearance in that case.?
Can this case can be withdrawn?
If the respondent not appeared now. But in the future she can file a case again?
