Marriage Act filed by her husband-respondent against her as well as petition

under Section 25 of Guardians and Wards Act seeking custody of the minor

children filed by respondent against the applicant pending in the Court of

Civil Judge (Sr. Divn.), Batala to the Court(s) of competent jurisdiction at

Amritsar.

According to the applicant, the marriage between the spouses

ran into rough weather though the couple was blessed with two sons namely

Master Saksham and Master Kavish, aged about 6 and 5 years at the time of

filing of the application. The applicant has filed two petitions one under

Section 12 of Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005 at

Amritsar and other being a divorce petition filed by applicant against the

respondent. Both the cases are pending in the Courts at Amritsar. As a

pressure tactic the respondent has filed two cases against the applicant in the

Courts at Batala. The applicant being a young woman, having no source of

income, taking care of two minor sons of the parties, it is difficult for her to

travel from Amritsar to Batala to attend the dates of hearing in the Courts

there, therefore, the application be accepted.

Notice of the applications were given to the respondent, who

has appeared through counsel filing written replies contesting the

applications. It is contended that the petition under Section 12 of Protection

of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005 has since been dismissed by

the Court and only the divorce petition filed by the applicant against the

respondent is pending in the Court at Amritsar. It is further submitted that

distance between Amritsar and Batala is about 39 Kms. Both the places are

well connected by road. The applicant can very easily come to Batala from

Amritsar in connection with dates of hearing. Further more she is getting

Rs.6,000/- per month as maintenance from the respondent and applicant is

regularly coming to Batala as a agent under a scheme MPKY, therefore, the

application be dismissed.

After hearing learned counsel for the parties and going through

the record I find that comparative inconvenience to the applicant shall be

much more if the applications are dismissed rather that if those are allowed.

The Apex Court in number of judgments have observed that in case of

matrimonial dispute between the spouses while considering the aspect of

transfer of cases, the convenience of wife is a major consideration.

Keeping in view the fact that applicant is taking care of two

minor children of the parties, having no source of income, it would be

difficult for her to travel from Amritsar to Batala frequently in connection

with attending dates of hearing there.

As regards learned counsel for the respondent that she has been

coming to Batala in connection with her work, there is no documentary

evidence available on the record to substantiate those contentions.

Keeping in view the contentions in the application and

submissions made by learned counsel for the applicant, in which I find merit,

in absence of any strong circumstance to the contrary, it would be proper and

appropriate if the applications are accepted. The same are accordingly allowed.

The petitions in question are ordered to be withdrawn from the Court of Civil

Judge (Sr. Divn.), Batala and transferred to Family Court at Amritsar for

disposal in accordance with law.

The parties through their counsel are directed to appear in the

transferee Court on 24.4.2019. Copies of orders be sent to the Court of Civil

Judge (Sr. Divn.), Batala as well as to the Family Court at Amritsar for

information and necessary compliance.
