If your wife is well qualified and is earning more than INR 50,000 a month, you are not entitled to pay her any maintenance. A well-qualified woman cannot harass her husband for maintenance. You are not to submit any document for the same. You can defend the maintenance petition with the help of a maintenance case lawyer in India.
