Hi, I have an Australian citizenship, My wife (neither an Australian citizen nor Permanent Resident of Australia) and my child (4 yrs old) are in India for past 5 years. How about the spousal maintenance ? My wife is earning in India for past 3 years with a good salary. Now she has resigned from her job and is staying at her home. 1 . Do I need to pay her any spousal maintenance ? If yes, how much should I pay ? I am earning AUS$60,000 / year. 2. She is capable of earning and hold a masters degree, but she is wasting her ability to earn money. In this case, should I need to give her spousal maintenance ? 3. Living expenses in India for my wife and my child will be around Rs 20,000 per month, which is equivalent $450 only. In this case, how much should I need to pay her ? 4. Will the divorce be granted only after spousal maintenance and child support is decided ?
