My wife is a qualified dentist but isn’t currently working. Can the Court still order me to pay her temporary maintenance for the course of the divorce proceedings under Hindu law?
Yes, the Court can order you to pay her temporary maintenance. It does not matter if she has earning capacity or not or whether she is qualified or not. If she does not have any source of income during the course of the proceedings, she can make an application for temporary maintenance and the Court can grant her the same.
