You have to bring out the fact that she is capable of earning by showing proofs of her past career. She is likely to get some maintenance in DVA as these cases are held in Mahila Courts which are sympathetic to women especially. She may not get anything u/s 125 as you have no children and she has a capability and history of working. But a lot depends on the presentation of the case and the judge’s bend of mind.
If you bring out that you are not working as your free lance career was ruined because of these cases, it will help to minimize or maybe eliminate the maintenance.
Please remember one thing about the judiciary. They create new judgements based on their perception of the case, facts and their own values. There is nary a judge even in the higher echelon of justice system who is able to divorce his own values from the case.
So don’t be disheartened by small losses and failures during the whole case. At some point you are bound to come across a judge who sees it from your point of view.
