Divorce From Wife And Maintenance After Her Remarriage

I've been married for 21+ years. I have 2 kids. Since the inception of my marriage, my wife and her mother have been trying to separate me from my parents. Can I file for divorce now? If I do, will have to pay any additional maintenance to her? After divorce, if she remarries, can I stop maintenance?

Yes, you can take divorce as in 2008, a supreme court judgment stated that a Hindu son can legally Divorce his Wife for the cruelty in case she tried to separate him away from his “pious religious obligation” to physically live with his aged parents and provide them care and shelter. You don't need to give the maintenance.
