in this case, there is no question of child custody. it is child support which is being denied.
out of court settlement does not always happens? but even then it is always initiated by husband to get away from the case.. divorce case is filed by her husband u/s13(a). if he does not come out and fight he cannot get divorce and if he comes out he has to pay maintenance otherwise go to jail. how many days he will escape from law. I hope gulati has already initiated search to find him with passport no. Pan no. etc. he is also making his life & life of his relatives (including his mistress/bhabhi) insecure
if he is honest and true let him fight the cases.
